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.
