TSPA (Tower School Parents Association)

TSPA Mission

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.

TSPA Volunteer Opportunities

Whether you are able to cover a one-hour shift at an event, lead a year-long committee or work on a short-term project from your office, your skills and energy are needed.

TSPA Meetings

Several times a year, the TSPA hosts meetings, to which every parent is welcome and encouraged to attend. TSPA 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.
