Parent Association

Our Mission

In 2003 Sunset Mesa School established the Sunset Mesa Parent Association (SMPA). This organization was created by parents to build a strong parent community dedicated to enriching the lives of our children and their teachers.  School programs are enhanced by the additional parent time and support that the SMPA provides to the Sunset Mesa community. Some of the major contributions include teacher support and appreciation activities and helping to make new families feel a part of our school community.

All parents are welcome to participate in any of the various SMPA committees. We gladly welcome everyone’s involvement throughout the year. Please contact any SMPA officer or committee chairperson if you are interested in participating in SMPA.
