JPA Volunteer Hours

Judge Parent Association (JPA)

All parents/guardians with students enrolled at Judge Memorial are automatically members of the Judge Parent Association (JPA).
 
Mission of JPA: To direct and coordinate parental support of Judge Memorial and our students through assistance at activities, athletics, social functions, and fundraisers; and to promote open communication, goodwill, and cooperation among parents, teachers, staff, and administration.
 
JPA Hours and Agreement
Each Judge Memorial family is expected to volunteer a minimum of 15 hours of service to the school, or donate $100 in lieu of service. The volunteer hours that you and your family provide Judge Memorial help establish community involvement for the benefit of fund raising, assisting team coaches, group moderators, class coordinators, and a myriad of other ways. Judge Memorial also uses these hours for grant writing and accreditation purposes. JPA Coordinator: Susan Lollini in the Advancement Office, slollini@judgememorial.com.
