What We Do

Welcome to the Marin Horizon School Parent Association page!
 
At Marin Horizon, the vibrant Parent Association is an important part of our community. As you’ll see in our bylaws, we exist for three important purposes:
 
  1. To create inclusive ways for members of the Marin Horizon community to be connected with each other and the School.
  2. To promote clear and effective communication between parents, teachers, Administration, and Board of Trustees.
  3. Through our fundraising efforts, to provide resources to support the School’s mission and programs.
 
On this page, you will find all sorts of PA information, including our bylaws, our leaders, list of duties and responsibilities, and meeting schedule. There are still some leadership positions available – check out the below list if you’re interested. And don’t worry – if you just want to get involved but don’t want to lead a committee, there will be plenty of volunteer opportunities next year!

When We Meet

The PA meets on the second Friday of every month, with some exceptions due to the school calendar. All meetings will be held at the Homestead Valley Community Center (HVCC), except where noted. Head of School Bill Perrine looks forward to starting each meeting with a school update!


Our mission is to challenge students to be self-reliant thinkers and lifelong learners. We inspire academic excellence, nurture students’ natural love of learning, and encourage them to be confident, creative individuals who are responsible to each other, the community, and the world.
