About Us

Who Are We?

We are parents/guardians, students, teachers, administrators, and staff who support North Arvada teachers, staff, and students.  

What Do We Do?

In 2017-18, we focused on the new community garden, assisting the school's leadership team with the sixth grade transition, and funded the purchase of additional security cameras for the school. We have also sponsored the school sports program, Reflections, and the North Arvada Honor Society.  

We are currently in the process of deciding our goals for the 2018-19 school year.

You will see us at the Open House, Back-to-School Night and other open house events. To support our staff, we provide meals during parent-teacher conferences and sponsor Staff Appreciation Week in May.
