2020-2021 PPA & Volunteer Recognition



Pilgrim’s closed campus and social distancing regulations were no match for our creative Pilgrim Parent Association, who were determined to make sure our parent community was as connected as ever through their innovative “Parent Connections” series. Utilizing the expertise and innovation of our community members, the PPA hosted online workshops, Q&A’s, classes, film screenings, and panels to not only bring our parents and students together virtually, but also stimulate our community intellectually and creatively in a time when the monotony of life indoors was taking over. We are so grateful for our amazing PPA Board, committee chairs, and parents for their efforts to plan and execute so many amazing online events throughout the 2020-21 school year!



2020-21 Volunteers

During a year as unique as this one, our community worked harder than ever to maintain our important connections, even when we couldn’t be together on campus. Thanks to our amazing volunteers, we were able to hold incredible and meaningful online events for our parents and students, as well as execute things like the Boo-Thru and Teacher Appreciation Week.

Thank you to the following volunteers and committee chairs for all of your hard work!
