The Parents’ Association welcomes you to the 2022-23 school year!
All Head-Royce parents and caregivers are automatically members of the Parents’ Association (PA). The PA partners with the School to facilitate parent involvement, encourage School-home communication, and enrich each family’s experience at Head-Royce. The PA strives to engage parents in diverse cultural programming, support our students, faculty and professional staff, and bring all members of our community together through our committees, parent affinity groups and events.
Parent support and volunteer service helps create our vibrant, engaged and caring community. Through all of our efforts, we are able to support our teachers, professional community, and our children.  All parents are encouraged to get involved in a way that is personally meaningful and suits their schedule. Volunteer opportunities include: sharing your knowledge at an admissions event, bringing in snacks for a faculty meeting, driving new donations on behalf of the Annual Fund, working on a committee for our annual fundraiser and much, much more!  We hope you'll take advantage of all that the PA has to offer and, in doing so, strengthen our K-12 community, make new friends and have fun!
Go Jayhawks!
