REACH Parent Group
The REACH Parent Group is a group of parents who volunteer their time to work on initiatives for children/teachers in the REACH Program. We are a non-profit organization that has officers such as President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Unlike typical PTA groups, the REACH Parent Group controls the funds that are raised and allocates them as the committee sees fit.

What We Do?
The REACH Parent Group holds meetings (as announced). Agendas are sent in advance of the meetings. There is an opportunity for an open forum where we discuss the REACH Program . We also support each other and share information. At times, we have special visitor that attend the meeting.
We work closely with classroom teachers and offers financial support for the classroom supplies, equipment, and trips. Over the years we have purchased handicapped swings for the elementary schools, miter saw, plants, ovens, $1,000 camp scholarship, sponsored a portion of Field Day and dinner for the REACH Concert. We have also paid for some trips – recently to the Adventure Aquarium and the 87ers basketball game.
How Can You Help?
We need parents to step up and co-chair some of our existing committee members. Many members of the committee will be rolling off due to our children aging out of the REACH program. We are also looking for someone who can help write grants to raise money for the group. If you can help, please e-mail one of the committee members below.
