Family Resources


City Arts Calendar

At City Arts, we consider our families, parents, and caregivers to be our greatest strength. Our school maintains an openness to invite parents through our doors and actively encourages them to volunteer for various activities, both on campus and beyond school walls.

In our school calendar, you will find ways to connect with school administrators and instructional staff, as well as other parents and stakeholders in the City Arts school community. Our students, performances, and events will inspire the artist within you!

Parents with a Purpose

When teachers and parents work together as a team, students realize that they have champions – at school and at home – who are rooting for their success and willing to work hard alongside them to achieve it. We value active parent participation in the life of our school.

City Arts encourages parents and caregivers to consider volunteering for a Parents with a Purpose (PWP)* event, activity, or committee. To volunteer your time and talents with PWP or to support City Arts in any other way, we invite you to complete our volunteer application.

*Also known as Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
