Parent Service Association

Because you have a student at MacLaren, you are a member of the Parent Service Association (PSA). Helping the school carry out its many activities is the mission of the PSA. All this service is overseen by the Head of School, working through liaisons to the PSA committees. The PSA may have several standing committees to take care of these many needs. 

The PSA has one-hour long meetings scheduled throughout the year to bring parents together to listen to a short presentation on a timely topic (e.g. how to promote good study habits at home, mental health issues for middle and high school students, explanation of Project Week, etc.), get an update on what is going on at the school currently, and learn about volunteer opportunities. It is also a time to help parents get to know one another. 

While we as a school do not have mandatory volunteer hours, every parent is expected to be involved in the life of the school. As a MacLaren parent, you have the opportunity to serve in many ways; the following are some of the many ways parents can be involved at MacLaren:

  • Help with Traffic Duty in the morning or afternoon
  • Help run an after school club
  • Monitor during 7th hour
  • Monitor during lunchtime recess
  • Bring in treats for faculty and staff birthdays
  • Help with Box Tops submissions
  • Use Safeway/Albertson's and King Soopers gift cards to earn 5% rebate back to the school
  • Help organize events such as the Used Uniform Sale and the 6th Grade Pool Party
  • Be a 6th Grade Class Parent
  • Organize and cook for the Faculty/Staff Appreciation events

To find out more about how to volunteer, either for a one-time event or more frequently, please contact Jennie Morris, Volunteer Coordinator, at jmorris@maclarenschool.org.  You can also check out the latest information on the Volunteer Information page on the website.
