Our parent community make it possible for Casa to exist. You honor us by entrusting us with the education of your children, and your volunteer efforts make it possible for us to operate a secure, caring school community every single day of the school year. We encourage parents to be a part of their child’s academic and social life at school, and we offer a variety of opportunities for families to learn and play together at Casa.
