A message from Parents Association Co-Presidents Susan and Judson Mihok

Welcome to the new school year! We are proud to be Co-Presidents of Maryvale’s Parents Association. Our other officers include George and Jen Kilbourne, Co-Vice Presidents, and our Treasurer, Terri Richards P '27.  

The Parents Association is a volunteer organization comprised of Middle and Upper School parents who promote a sense of community at Maryvale through meaningful participation and involvement in service, fundraising and social events throughout the school year. Our awesome fundraising efforts culminate in an annual financial contribution to the school.

The Parents Association is also an umbrella organization for Maryvale’s Sports Boosters and Friends of the Arts. Meetings are open to all Maryvale parents.
 
In addition to the Parents Association, each Maryvale grade level has Parent Class Representatives who communicate with you through emails about various class activities and fundraisers. You can easily keep up with the Parents Association by reading the Maryvale Minute each Monday.
 
Events we plan to host this year include Sip and Shop and the Christmas Shops at Green Spring Station on Friday, November 19 and Saturday, November 20, and the Bull Roast on Saturday, March 26. We hope you will get involved and join us!
 
Please also feel free to reach out anytime with questions and concerns.
 
Sincerely, 
Judson and Susan Mihok P '23, '25

 

 

2021-2022 Parents Association-Sponsored Events

Charleston Wraps – The Parents Association is sponsoring a wrapping paper sale and we make a 40 percent profit on everything purchased. All orders and payments are online and the deadline is October 4, 2021. To start shopping, click here and open Register Participant. Our organization ID is 19880.

Helpful hints: Your daughter's name is the participant. If you have more than one student in your family, pick one as our classes are not competing for sales. The teacher’s name is her Advisor. After the setup, the instructions send you to a page where you can send texts or emails to invite people to shop under your child’s name. You are not required to send them. Have fun shopping!

Christmas Shops at Green Spring Station – A long-standing tradition at Maryvale, the Christmas Shops will be moving to Green Spring Station this year. Many interesting vendors will be on site, and a portion of the merchant sales go to Maryvale. Santa Claus will be making an appearance, too! Please join us on Saturday, November 20, 2021 for this fabulous evening!
