Tower School Parents Association (TSPA)


The objective of the Tower School Parents Association (TSPA) is to facilitate communication among faculty, parents, and trustees, and to promote a greater sense of community and school spirit through activities and events. In addition, the TSPA organizes a number of fundraising events, the proceeds from which are used to enhance the overall educational experience for Tower students. The TSPA is open to the entire parent body, and every parent is encouraged to be an active member.


Several times a year, the TSPA will host meetings which every parent is welcome and encouraged to attend. These meetings provide opportunities to hear about upcoming events and programs and on occasion a member of the faculty or administration will attend as a guest speaker to highlight a program at school. Meeting dates and topics are below; updates will be posted in Spotlight and on the school calendar.
