THE SIENA PARENTS ASSOCIATION

The Siena Parents Association (SPA) is an integral part of our vibrant school community. The goal of the SPA is to build a strong sense of community among students, parents/legal guardians and staff in support of Siena’s mission and objectives. In order to accomplish this goal, the SPA identifies areas where parents can work together to become a valuable resource for the school, its students, and the staff. Each parent or guardian is a member of the SPA and may participate in its programs and activities. Additionally, all parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to volunteer in support of SPA events. 

To accomplish this, the SPA brings the parents and guardians together to learn about school administration plans and identify areas where parents can work together to strengthen the sense of community at Siena. To this end, the SPA holds monthly meetings throughout the year; parent attendance is critical to its success.

The SPA is a service entity and does not make any policy decisions relating to Siena. However, parents/legal guardians are encouraged to provide input and ideas via the SPA that will help achieve Siena’s mission and objectives.

For more information about how the SPA operates, please see the SPA Operating Principles document accessible from this page.
