Mariner Parent Association » GOALS OF SMCHS MPA


Build Community: Through communication and programs designed to inform and connect our parents, our goal is to build and sustain a strong community and assist parents in developing effective partnership with the school that will allow them to support the extraordinary educational opportunities for our students.

Elevate School Spirit: By establishing a School Spirit Store, we will create a culture that bleeds GREEN, or at least wears it! Communication and special events will help engage parents, students and Alumni to support our Mariners on the field, on the court or on the stage.  GO MARINERS GO!

Produce Programs: By planning and implementing effective programs geared towards growth and connection, we will build and strengthen our community of students, parents, faculty and administration.

Provide Hospitality: We support school programs and special events with refreshments and volunteers.  Events include Back to School Night, Open House, Admission Interviews and Parent Nights.

Facilitate Volunteering: Our goal is to connect you with the many opportunities we offer for parents to share their unique talents, resources, and backgrounds with our students and our school.

Assist Advancement: Although fundraising is not our primary goal, we all win when our school events and fundraising programs succeed.  We support the advancement initiatives by promoting these events to our parents for volunteers, attendance and donations.

Support Teachers: We promote a positive working relationship with the faculty, staff, and administration through events that show appreciation to teachers on Teacher Appreciation Day, Holidays and throughout the year.

Support Students: When we all work together and join as a community there is no shortage of what we can do for our students.
