Griffin Parents Association (GPA)

"No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." - John 15:13

What is the GPA?

We are a group of parents and staff who are committed to creating a fun, vibrant community at St. Margaret Regional and providing what our students need to thrive and grow!

How do I join?

If you are a parent at SMRS then you are automatically a member of the GPA.  There are so many wonderful events that the GPA helps to coordinate each year for our students and families.  We would love to continue hosting these events and to even add new events that any of you may imagine.  Below you may find a list of events that we have done in the past with a description of each one.  We hope by being informed of our annual events, you will feel welcome to join us in the fun!

  • Back to School Night

    Parents or guardians meet at the school at the beginning  of the school year for a brief meeting with the principal and then go to their child’s/children’s homeroom to meet the teachers and find out a little about what will be happening in class during the year.  Middle School parents go to each of their child’s teachers in 15 minute increments to learn about their classes.  General questions are answered by staff on this night, but any detailed information about your specific child should be discussed during a conference that you may set up with the teacher on that night.

  • Golf Tournament

    A shot gun set up Golf Tournament open to the community with prizes for holes in one, closest to the hole etc. followed by dinner and an auction.

    A party for SMRS students and their immediate families held at the school with games, activities and trunk or treating!
