You can serve on a committee, support our fundraising efforts with your gifts and/or time, attend athletic games and performing arts events or join meetings virtually from a distance. Your involvement is important to our school family and visiting this website often is a great way to stay informed about the many programs and activities going on at Knox.
Please take a close look at the Parents’ Association Committees described below. With today’s technology, members of committees do not always have to meet personally. We encourage you to make a difference by participating in a Parents’ Association Committee.
To communicate your interest in a committee and/or to ask specific questions about the Parents’ Association and its activities, please contact Knoxpsa@knoxschool.org.
Members of this committee will serve as liaisons between the Parents’ Association and the Athletic Department to foster communication between the Athletic Director, coaches and School families. Responsibilities may include advising the Parents’ Association on upcoming games/meets, concession opportunities and other ways to support our student athletes.
“Arts” Committee members serve as liaisons between the Parents’ Association and the School’s Visual and Performing Arts Department to provide information to parents regarding “Arts” news and activities. They work with the department chair to coordinate concessions for visual and performing arts events and to make the School community aware of ways to support our student visual artists and performers.
The goal of this committee is to support events sponsored by the School, its alumni and the Parents’ Association. Members promote Parents’ Association socials and assist the School’s Advancement Department with fundraising events to benefit Knox. They may also provide outreach to encourage attendance at events by School families.
