The mission of LSPC (Lower School Parents' Council) is to promote the sense of community and connectedness of all families within the school through social opportunities, parent education and support of the faculty and school programs. All Lower School parents are a part of the LSPC.

All parents are invited to join LSPC meetings at 8:15 am in The Belfry. Meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month (except March when there will not be a meeting).  LSPC meetings provide a great opportunity to hear more about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and school news.
