The Archbishop Mitty Parent Association (AMPA) brings parents together in support of the school and the greater community through social events and service opportunities. Volunteer or attend an upcoming AMPA event and experience firsthand the many benefits of becoming involved in the Mitty community!
There is no need to sign up to be part of the parent association. By nature of having a student enrolled at Mitty, all Mitty parents are automatically considered AMPA members.
The AMPA Leadership is composed of nominated volunteer leaders who serve as liaisons to the AMHS parent community as well as spearhead, lead and volunteer for various AMPA and AMHS sponsored events and programs. Each leader serves on one or more of the following committees: Athletic Program Support, Performing Arts Program Support, Hospitality, Mailing, Social Events, and Auction. Each grade level is also led by two Class Representatives, who organize and lead social activities for parents and caregivers to help build a strong parent community and encourage parent participation/volunteering at school and AMPA events. In addition, AMPA is led by a core group of parent volunteers:
2023-24 AMPA Leadership
President – Stephanie deRaynal
President-Elect – Rich Surprenant
Secretary – Jennifer Hsu
Financial Coordinator – Suki Huang
Volunteer Coordinator – Lynn Brown
Over 600 parents annually provide vital support to Mitty through volunteerism. Nearly every AMHS event and student program is supported in some capacity by volunteers. Most volunteer activities take place after work hours. Volunteering might only take a few hours of your time, but is critical to the school, and is a great way to network with other parents, learn about your student’s environment, and share in the many traditions that make Mitty so unique and special.
