A Grade Rep is a parent or guardian who agrees to serve in a voluntary role on behalf of a grade for the entire school year.

The basic roles and responsibilities that all Grade Reps share include:

  1. Connecting with the other Grade Reps volunteering for the grade and determining how the responsibilities can be shared.
  2. Connecting with the teachers for the grade at the beginning of the school year to see if there are any needs that the Grade Reps can communicate to and/or coordinate with the other parents in the grade. Depending on the teacher(s), Grade Reps may be asked to coordinate in-class parties or other volunteer activities during the year.
  3. Fostering a sense of community in the grade by getting acquainted with the other families and encouraging grade level and MPA participation and community building.
  4. Planning at least two grade socials per year. Typically one social is a family event and one is for parents only.
  5. Attending MPAPA All School meetings if possible.
  6. Attending MPAPA Division meetings for the applicable grade level (i.e., Lower School, Middle School, Upper School) .

Grade Reps play an important role in supporting and fostering the strong sense of community we enjoy as MPA families.
