Middle School Council Welcome Letter

Dear Middle School Parents,

For parents new to Middle School and to Lab School: Welcome! 

We are parents who have been elected to represent you on the Middle School Council of the Parents’ Association (PA).  We work closely with the Middle School (MS) Principal, Assistant Principal and Dean of Students as well as the UCLS PA at large to:

  • Help parents feel more connected with the School and the Lab community;
  • Represent the voice and perspectives of MS parents and families with the MS administrative team;
  • Support teachers and faculty by organizing parent volunteers, as needed, and administering the PA Grant program which provides monetary support for classroom and curriculum innovations; and
  • Strengthen community among students by providing resources and supervision for student-initiated events and implementing programming such as Giant Gym Night

You can learn more here: http://labparents.org/07312019-middle-school-101-events-and-activities.

This is an overview of the different events that the PA organizes and/or supports for Middle School students and families. Each event is an opportunity to get involved, and we welcome volunteers!

Middle School does not have room parents and many of the Advisory activities are planned by the students with their Advisor. However, do not hesitate to reach out to your students’ Advisor to see if they need help with any big projects or events throughout the school year. 

We are looking forward to serving you and sharing a fantastic year at Lab!  

Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.
