Join Parent Circle and get involved!

The Parent Circle is Acorn Hill’s equivalent of a PTA – a gathering of parents who want to take an active part in building a vibrant Acorn Hill community. Our goal is to support the faculty and staff by organizing community-building events and fundraising activities. Although we primarily engage in volunteerism, our purpose is also to be a social forum for parents. Please send any questions or comments to and we will get back to you.
