We believe that the most effective education takes place where the children are actively and visibly supported by an involved community of parents and teachers. We have found that as our community grows, not only do many hands make our work lighter, but also there is something special that happens in the spirit of community through such service. Parent participation is the lifeblood of our association, and without it, we would not exist. We ask that members take every opportunity to share their talents and energy with all of us who form the Cedar Springs Private Education Association community. We ask that all families volunteer ten hours each month to the growth and health of our community.
