Dawson Parent Association

Dawson parents are critical to the life and the community of the School.

Dawson Parent Assocation

The relationship between parents and the School is one of reciprocity: Dawson provides services and communications; in turn, the School often relies on upon enthusiastic parents to volunteer their time and talents. 

Throughout the school year, the Dawson Parent Association organizes and hosts several community-building events, which rely solely on parent volunteers. The proceeds of these events are used to fund important educational and recognition initiatives at the school.
