PTPA President
Welcome to the Palmer Trinity Parents’ Association (PTPA)! The PTPA is a voluntary association comprised of all the parents and guardians of students enrolled at the School. The PTPA is an integral part of the School and acts as a source of support to the faculty and administration. Parents help plan, coordinate, and staff enjoyable events ranging from spirit events for the students, educational seminars for the parents, fundraising events for a variety of initiatives, and fun community-building gatherings. Our efforts help ensure that Palmer Trinity continues to be a model for academic excellence and a school dedicated to inspiring students to lead lives of virtue, humanity, and spirit.

At Palmer Trinity, parents can become involved in a variety of ways. The PTPA has numerous committees that work tirelessly to enrich the lives of the entire Palmer Trinity community. Whether you choose to be directly involved in your child’s class as a grade coordinator or choose to take on the substantial role of a committee chair, you can be sure that your role will be very rewarding. For a complete list of all PTPA volunteer opportunities, please refer to the PTPA Volunteer Form on our website.

Parents find that being active members of the PTPA is a gratifying and enriching experience for themselves and for their children. We encourage and welcome your participation in any of the PTPA committees. Volunteering is a wonderful way to get to know other parents at the school and to become involved in your child’s school life. You can participate as little or as much as your schedule allows. Your involvement will give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping Palmer Trinity while also helping those who matter the most in your life: your children.  

The PTPA Executive Board is focused on making your experience as a Palmer Trinity parent a positive and rewarding one. Please feel free to contact any of us if you have questions, comments or suggestions.

Thanks, and we look forward to working with everyone.
