Parents are an integral part of the Tampa Prep community. Through the Tampa Prep Parents Alliance (TPPA), parents partner with the school to volunteer and provide support for activities, events and programs. The partnership between Prep and our families is vital for student success.
Tampa Prep Parents Alliance (TPPA)
We encourage you to engage in some of the committees and special interest groups on the following pages, and please feel free to reach out to your grade-level or division representatives if you have any questions or need guidance this first year!
Hello from the TPPA President
As we begin the 2023-24 school year at the most innovative school in Tampa Bay, the Tampa Prep Parents Alliance is excited to get back into action, hosting events to support both students and parents alike! To stay current on all TPPA events (and there are MANY throughout the year!) Parents are welcome to attend TPPA meetings (usually held on the 3rd Wednesday every month). Dates & locations can be found via the school calendar. Be sure to read the TPPA Weekly Update in the Thursday newsletter. TPPA would love to know if you’d like to be invited to participate in volunteer opportunities at school as they come up during the 2022-23 school year. Please fill out this form now to receive volunteer invitations.
If you have questions about TPPA, email TPPA President Allison Mook at email@example.com.
How can I learn about TPPA events this year?
What is a PEC Presentation?
The Parent Education Committee is a group within the TPPA responsible for hosting speakers about topics relevant to parents. You can access recordings of PEC sessions via our Vimeo account: https://vimeopro.com/tampaprep/pec.
What are the Grade Level Events?
Terrapins in each Upper School grade will enjoy a special lunch once per semester during their regular lunch hour, courtesy of the TPPA. Parents will be invited to volunteer at these events.
Middle School students will enjoy a special lunch and a treat each semester during their regular lunch hour, courtesy of the TPPA. Parents will be invited to volunteer at these events.
Each semester, parents can attend a Parent Coffee at school one morning and a Parent Social in the Tampa area one evening, all courtesy of the TPPA. These events are thoughtfully organized by your TPPA Grade Level Representatives. Parent Coffees generally have a guest speaker from Tampa Prep leadership who shares timely information relevant to the grade hosting the gathering. Parent Socials are a great opportunity to connect with other parents in the Tampa Prep community.
All TPPA Events are published in the school’s weekly electronic newsletter and in the parent portal
