The Pathfinder School: Traverse City Community School

Pathfinder Parent Association

Providing meaningful opportunities for parents to be involved in our vibrant school community!

The Pathfinder Parents Association (P.P.A.) is the lifeblood of our school community, volunteering in the classroom, helping us maintain the campus and keeping the joy and laughter vibrant and echoing through our school.  Volunteering is a wonderful way for new families to connect with the old. Lasting friendships and memories abound in events like Be Excited About Reading Day (BEAR Day), PathFUNDer - annual fundraiser, Winter Festival, 1st grade Cherry Festival float and more. 

As a parent at Pathfinder, you are automatically a member of the PPA. We encourage you to attend meetings to learn more about the numerous volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
