Parent involvement is an essential component of student success. Parents are expected to be an integral part of their child’s education. Our PTA is an active group and supports the staff and students in multiple ways. The commitment and devotion to our community crosses many generations. Current staff members were former Boevers students and several of our parents were former Boevers students. Every day we work together building into the lives of our future.
