The Griffin Parent Association's mission is to promote the welfare of students by developing a closer relationship between the home and the school. This enables parents, teachers, and administration to have a collaborative approach to the student school experience. Our commitment is inspired by our children's opportunity to grow in a family environment and create lifelong relationships with parents, friends, school staff, and other members of our community.
The LMP community is composed of many different beliefs and traditions, celebrating commonalities in our experiences. We value Unity, embrace Family, act with Integrity, and Trust in teamwork. At LMP "U-FIT".
GPA holds a meeting 2-3 times per year for the LMP Parents to interact with the LMP Staff and Leadership. Please contact one of our board members listed below to inquire about the next meeting.
