Events and Volunteer Opportunities

We encourage you to get involved; our families are one of our greatest strengths and greatly enhance the quality of education at GRA!

Parent-Teacher-Friends (PTF)

Meets the 1st Friday of each month in the Embers Room at  8:10 a.m.

Parent-Teacher-Friends is a group of parents that work on various events throughout the year to promote unity and fellowship among teachers and parents and to support and encourage Grande Ronde Academy’s students and staff. 

We welcome parents, family and community friends who want to learn more about the events we are involved in throughout the year to help serve GRA. We believe that uniting parents and teachers in the common goal of developing the whole child (academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally) is a vital part of creating a successful education.

I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
