PATS (Parents and Teachers Association)

The mission of PATS (Parents and Teachers Association) is to involve all MRA parents, faculty members, and administrative personnel in programs, projects, and activities designed to benefit our students and school. All MRA parents along with MRA Faculty members and administrative personnel are members of PATS. There are many ways to participate in PATS, and some of those include: serving on the PATS Executive Board, serving as a Committee Chair, or serving as a Navigator. In addition, every parent has the opportunity to get involved in PATS sponsored activities throughout the year.
