PTPA President's Message

On behalf of the Palmer Trinity Parent’s Association (PTPA), we are delighted to welcome you to our school family as we begin the 2021-2022 school year. 

For my family, this marks our 7th year since our oldest son, now a rising senior began Palmer Trinity. Prior to choosing Palmer Trinity, we did our thorough research. Neither my husband nor I had a strong affiliation to any school, so we did our due diligence and toured every private school, public school, & looked at various magnet and gifted programs. The answer was lying right in front of our eyes - in the peaceful tree-lined courtyards, the easy-going feeling that’s perceived as you enter the school, and the warm welcome from the staff, faculty, and student tour guides. Six years later, with our second child, a rising 9th grader, we are most grateful for this school that we are now proud to call our second home. My sincere hope is that your family will find the same warmth and friendliness that continues to greet us. 
All parents and guardians of students enrolled at Palmer Trinity School are part of the PTPA. We are a voluntary organization that provides a vital source of support for the faculty and administration through many endeavors. We are actively involved in the life of our school, and we hope you’ll join us. We have an array of activities and exciting events, from participating in Book Club to making something special for our teachers (Staff and Teacher Appreciation Committee) to hosting a booth at the International Festival and everything in between. We have a place for you!

The PTPA has numerous committees in which you can be involved, and you will undoubtedly find it to be a rewarding experience. Volunteering also provides the opportunity to meet other parents and the parents of your child’s friends. There are many opportunities throughout the year to show your support and you can give any amount of time you have. We are appreciative of every minute you can give because collectively, we make a huge difference in the life of our students, faculty, and staff.

Palmer Trinity School is a vibrant community and we look forward to seeing you on campus forging new friendships and strengthening old ones through one of the greatest acts of kindness - volunteering.

On behalf of the entire PTPA Executive Board, I welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year and wish you a year of much happiness.
