Current Parents

Parent Council

The Parent Council is GPA’s parent organization. As a GPA parent or guardian, you are automatically a member. Volunteering at our various events held throughout the year is a great way for you to support and improve our school community, and an opportunity for you to have fun and meet other parents. Regardless of the amount of time you have to give, we have a spot for you.

We don’t know exactly what the 2020-21 school year will look like in terms of events, but here is list of some of the events we usually hold.


  • Back to School Picnic
  • Spirit Nights (Fall and Spring)
  • Admissions Tours and Open Houses
  • Book Fair – online for 2020-21
  • Grandparents’/Special Friends’ Day
  • The Pumpkin Festival
  • The Grosse Pointe Santa Claus Parade
  • Holiday Sing-a-Long/Tree Lighting Ceremony
  • Mother/Son Event
  • Paczki Day
  • Daddy/Daughter Dance

Other ways get involved:

Used Uniform Organization

Your support and involvement is essential to the success and excellence of our school and our students. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Lani Martin, Director of Marketing and Communications at or (313) 886-1221.

Thank you so much for all you do!
