MHS PARENT ASSOCIATION

2013-2014

The Maranatha High School Parent Association is a great place to get involved. As a parent of a student at Maranatha, you are automatically a part of the Parent Association (PA). It is a fun and diverse group of people committed to supporting the many activities that make Maranatha a lively community. All Parents are invited to attend Parent Association (PA) meetings, coffees, and events. Come join us! Get involved! PA meetings and gatherings provide opportunities for parents to get acquainted, stay informed about what is going on at the school, and listen to guest speakers from our faculty and administration. 

Please Join Us….. All parents are welcome! Parent Association Meetings are held at 8:30 a.m. in the 3rd Floor Commons in the Academic Center (coffee served at 8:15), with the exception of the October and February meetings which will be held at 6:45 p.m. in the Student Center.  The schedule for the year is as follows:

The Parent Association (PA) provides support for Maranatha High School in 4 distinct ways:

Community Building

  • The PA strives to build community amidst its parent body.  In addition to the monthly PA meetings and coffees, we have several Community Coffees and a freshman mentor group to incorporate new families into our Maranatha Community.

Prayer & Care Ministries

  • Care and meal ministry for our MHS community.
  • Weekly prayer opportunities: On Campus and Prayer Walks!
  • Partners in Prayer: Support for every student, faculty and staff member of MHS.

Administration of the Parent Volunteer Program (PVP)

  • The PVP program is designed to encourage a spirit of community in which each school family actively participates and supports the life and development of Maranatha High School. You will earn 1 PVP hour for each PA meeting you attend!
  • Each family is required to volunteer a minimum of 20 hours of service or pay a $500 fee. If your family has not fulfilled the required 20 parent volunteer hours and returned the completed coupon book by March 14, 2014, a $500 fee will be assessed on the April 2014 statement as a reminder to get hours fulfilled. Completed PVP coupon books are due by May 23, 2014; otherwise the fee will be assessed.

FundraisERS

  • The Parent Association raises money to support the needs and wishes of teachers and staff at Maranatha for items such as SMART Boards and Mobile Computer Labs. There are many PA Fundraisers you can support: This year's Annual Gala, the Used Uniform Sale, See’s Candies Sale, Scrip, E-Scrip, Ink Cartridges for Kids, and GoodSearch.com.
