Parent Advisers meet regularly with class officers and representatives to advise the leadership team on student fundraising and community service projects.
Parent Advisers provide parents with information on class activities and events and with opportunities to connect as a parent community with class socials. They further support the class by arranging for parent volunteers to assist with activities such as T-shirt sales, carnival booths, Snack Shack, parent socials and other activities.
Parent Advisers also help coordinate and track class fundraising efforts. The Class of 2016 will endeavor to raise about $60,000 over their four years at Miramonte to help fund class activities and to defray the expenses of Junior Prom, Senior Ball, Grad Night, and other graduation-related events. Most of the funds are earned from donations on the webstore, class socials, t-shirt sales, and football concessions.
The Miramonte High School and Miramonte Parents’ Club websites are a great resource for parents. Visit the following links frequently to keep on top of what's happening on campus and senior activities.
