Parents of Alumni (PALS)

Parents of Alumni provides opportunities to remain an active part of the Ransom Everglades community.

Is your child in college but you still want to be part of the Ransom Everglades community? Did your child graduate years ago and you miss the camaraderie of the parents you met through RE?

Then, join PALS. We meet to continue our friendships, discuss parenting issues, make care packages for our children, attend the REPALS Book Club, keep informed through RE-sponsored lectures, and partake in other fun events. Contact REPA if you would like to be notified of upcoming PALS events.

Contact Abby Zanarini, Vice President - PALS, with suggestions for an event, questions about an upcoming event, or to host an event.

Q.  What kinds of things do you volunteer for?

JL: I have worn many hats as a volunteer. I like helping wherever needed, including greeting new parents at the school’s open house, helping plan the middle school picnic and making sure the yearly auction is a success. I often end up helping everyone with technology, which I much enjoy.

Q. How long have you been volunteering at Ransom Everglades?

JL: I started volunteering when my daughter started at the middle school, several years ago, and have enjoyed helping in every event since then.

Q.  What’s the biggest benefit from volunteering at RE?

JL: The most rewarding benefit is spending time with my daughters at school and getting to know their teachers and other school staff.

Q.  Would you recommend volunteering to a new parent?

JL:  Yes; volunteering introduced me to other parents and provided me the opportunity to learn from their experiences in parenting.

Q.  Did you know many of the parents before you started volunteering at RE?

JL:  I only knew a handful of parents at the beginning. All the parents I met volunteering made the transition into a new school easier for my family.
