WELCOME to the Duck's Nest Parent Association (DNPA) blog!

The goal of this blog is to consolidate information for you, so it's easy to see what's going on and how we need your help! We know life is busy and we want the DNPA to feel accessible and be a community that we all want to help build. Please take a moment to consider how you can participate. Whether it's a room parent position, event coordinator role, or event set-up.  Everything helps.

We are in need of volunteers for the following events and committees: (to volunteer open these links)

Thank you to the many parents who attended the DNPA kick-off meeting. We're excited for the new year, new faces, and the opportunity to continue to support our amazing community. If you weren't able to attend, or would like to learn more about what the DNPA does, click here.

Saturday, 11/5 11am-1pm: DNPA Fall Festival

This is the first community building event of the school year. The Fall Festival is funded by and brought to you by the DNPA, with parent volunteers who organize activities and food. The school campus is transformed, and typically includes arts and crafts, music, and games for the kids.

The DNPA organizes community events and outreach programs, as well as fundraisers to foster educational enrichment and community. Events organized by the DNPA are structured to pay for themselves or to create a positive financial contribution back to the Duck’s Nest community and school. By participating in the DNPA and volunteering for an event, you are making a valuable contribution to your children and your community.
