Parent Association Transition to CFA Family Partnership
from Michele Brouse, President

The power of community within the student body is something I have always advocated for and admired. 
I see how important the camaraderie is for these children and I want the same for the CFA families.  My goal this year as CFA Family Partnership President is to do simply that.

This year, a group of 11 parents will lead the way in re-organizing a volunteer organization comprised of CFA parents, grandparents and interested family members that will create a tradition of engagement and involvement in the life of the school. It will be our intention to create an environment where these volunteers feel welcome, included, and valued as partners. A stronger CFA family community will only further the children with their confidence as students of CFA, individually as a person and together a stronger bond with their family.  With a world, chaotic and scary it’s even more important to bring the most amazing school community together and cherish where we live, who we are and what we can accomplish for the good.

It was determined that to better identify this organization, the steering committee voted to rename the volunteer organization from the Parent Association to the CFA Family Partnership.

CFA Family Partnership Steering Committee
The leadership of this new organization will be called the Steering Committee. In the early weeks and months, this group will consider a revision of bylaws, as well as create a budget for the school year. This committee will likely meet monthly during the school year, however a final decision on the frequency and time of the meetings will be determined when the committee is formed in August. They will also work together to create events and programs that will bring our greater community together to build comradery and form stronger bonds between our families.
