Welcome to the Boys' Latin Parents' Association

September 2015 Newsletter

Dear Parents,

The start of a new school year is always an exciting time as we welcome new and returning students to the Boys’ Latin School campus.  The Parents’ Association extends a special welcome to all of our new families.  We are pleased to have you join our community and look forward to meeting you and your sons in the coming weeks.

The Parents’ Association at Boys’ Latin serves as an important link between the parents and the school.  We have been busy organizing and preparing for another year of special events and activities in support of the school.  Last year, the Parents’ Association provided funding for student-led clubs, parent education speakers, Fall Festival, Post Prom, coffee service for the faculty and staff, five faculty and staff awards, and numerous other events throughout the year. 

We will kick off the year with the annual Fall Festival on September 26, 2015 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.  There will be a number of new activities and games this year and lots of delicious food!  The varsity soccer team will compete against Gerstell Academy at 11 am, and the varsity football team will take on St. Mary's at 1:30 pm.

Fundraising is key to the success of our efforts.  This year, we will again participate with the Alumni Association for the Boys’ Latin Annual Bull & Oyster Roast on Saturday, November 21st.  The PA will have its annual Bull Roast basket raffles as well as a portion of the event’s silent auction.  Please also note that the PA collects box tops and has sign-up opportunities with Giant, e-Scrip, Amazon (through Smile.Amazon.com) and Target. 

Please take a moment to visit the Parents’ Corner on the website where there is helpful information and useful links to all things a BL parent needs to know.  Also on the website, under the “Parents’ Association” or “Parents’ Corner” tab, you will also find a list of all the PA Board members, class representatives, and committee chairs.  All parents are welcome to attend the monthly class representative meetings, and these dates are on the school’s calendar.  Please contact us if you have questions or comments.  

If you have not already done so, please consider volunteering your time.  It isn’t too late!  There are so many ways that you can help both small and large, and there is definitely something for everyone.  Please contact your class representative to sign up.

With your support, we look forward to another successful year!

Best Regards,

Alison Brennan
