The purpose of the Lick-Wilmerding High School Parents Association (PA) is to help build and sustain community among the parents, students, faculty, administrators, staff, and alumni of the school.
The Parents Association assists parents in developing an effective partnership with the school to achieve the best possible educational experience for the students.
The Parents Association recognizes that the entire LWHS community, with its economic, cultural and ethnic diversity, is enriched by the variety of talents, resources, and backgrounds that each parent brings to the school.
