Parent Council is Desert Marigold’s parent-teacher organization and meets monthly and quarterly to support our students’ educational experience, our teachers and the school as a whole. The vitality of Parent Council depends on you, together we can do so much!  Our success depends on a sufficient number of parents who are willing and able to contribute their energy and leadership to do this important work. Please join us!
