VPA meetings take place in the Villa Parlor, generally after drop-off, but occasionally in the evening. We invite you to join us.
We welcome and encourage you to volunteer at Villa. Through the VPA you’ll learn about the many ways that parent volunteers support the school with their time, effort, and expertise. There’s a role for you that fits any schedule!
Required Trainings for Volunteers:
Each school year, all Villa volunteers must attend a required training that outlines our policies around student safety and common expectations. Watch VikingNET and The Weekly for volunteer training dates and times.
Note: Due to COVID guidelines, our 2021-22 meetings will be held over Zoom until further notice.
Show your Villa pride by wearing or carrying Villa gear! There are many items from which to choose: hats, t-shirts, bags, jackets and blankets, to name a few:
The VPA hosts some of the region’s most respected experts to present lectures on a range of parenting issues – from academic and social issues, to discipline and development, and much more.
