Welcome Page


Kendall PTA is a partnership between parents, teachers and Kendall faculty.  Our mission to work together to provide quality programs, including educational, community service based and social, to help enrich our students experience at Kendall.  
WELCOME BACK!

Volunteer Opportunities
Programs at Kendall can only survive with continued volunteerism from parents. The Kendall PTA offers over 25 programs that wouldn’t be possible without a parent/grandparent volunteering their time and giving back to school. Whether you are able to work directly at school or give an hour at home, your support is APPRECIATED! Please use the following link to see if there is a program you can help with.


MANY PROGRAMS ARE AT RISK OF GETTING 
CUT DUE TO LACK OF VOLUNTEERISM!
