Bosque Parent & Guardian Association

Welcome to the Bosque Parent & Guardian Association
EVERY parent and guardian is an automatic member of the Bosque Parent & Guardian Association (BPGA), and we hope this group will help you build your adult community throughout your journey at Bosque School.

The BPGA is a hub for parent volunteer opportunities and a resource for:
  • Parents to better understand the Bosque School community, discuss issues, and show appreciation to other community members such as faculty and staff.
  • Staffulty to connect with the parents, discuss issues and opportunities, and promote a community-based vision for the school.
  • Anyone who needs help coordinating a school-based event that brings students, faculty, and parents together.
