Parent Crew (previously REA)
All parents are members of Parent Crew (previously REA), the parent organization for our school. Our main initiatives are to plan “crew building” events for the school, promote volunteering within the parent crew and raise funds to support our school.
We invite all members of the Renaissance community to contribute their time and talents to one of the many important Parent Crew committees. Come see how you can make a visible difference in our school community.
Parent Crew Board Meetings
Parent Crew is governed by a Board of Officers, who are elected in the spring to serve two-year terms. The many different events and functions carried out by the Parent Crew are run by individual parent “leads” and the volunteers under their direction. The Parent Crew board meets monthly and welcomes parents and community members to attend. These business meetings will feature a short presentation from an Parent Crew committee on their plans for a future event or function. Meeting dates and topics are listed below and may provide parents new to Renaissance a chance to learn more about Parent Crew and opportunities to contribute.
