Join The LPA—Pick A Team!

The Lions Parent Association (LPA) invites all WA parents to join them! The LPA actively supports the mission of the school by providing opportunities to connect and cultivate relationships, as well as promoting volunteerism and school spirit. Organized into seven teams, the LPA provides flexibility and offers a wide range of opportunities, which vary with regard to interest, skill, and time. We are grateful for the LPA leadership including Co-Chairs—Christy LaCaria and Danielle Oropesa, Treasurer—Nicole Chong, Secretary—Susan Korthals, and each of our team leaders.

  • Events Team, led by Laura Harms & Sarah Salvatoriello (LS/Prep) and Amy Wright & Nancy Pritchard (Upper School). This team seeks to create an inviting environment at various school events. Opportunities include greeting, decorating, and serving refreshments.
  • Faculty & Staff Appreciation Team, led by Ale Ora & Elizabeth Rodrigues. This team coordinates appreciation gifts and lunches and encourages faculty and staff throughout the school year.
  • Mane Event Team, led by Mark Scott & Nelson Ruiz. This team organizes events and builds community among WA fathers while supporting the efforts of the LPA.
  • Prayer & Care Team, led by Anastasha Steele & Ellen Whiteman. This team focuses on praying for our faculty, staff, and school families and providing encouragement and support to those experiencing hardship. The team has prayer requests boxes in both faculty lounges, sends notes of encouragement, provides meals, and most importantly prays for submitted requests.
  • Support Team, led by Jennifer Costigan, Lori Murphy. This team manages the Christmas Boutique and Uniform Bank, which fund all the activities of the LPA. For example, their efforts support faculty and staff appreciation events, hospitality at school functions, meals for families experiencing hardship, and more.
  • Class Parents (PreK—5th grade parents) serve their child’s class by supporting the teacher and communicating with fellow parents to facilitate activities. Class Parents are also encouraged to promote schoolwide events and volunteerism. Led by Mailin Justiniano (PK2-Grade 2) and Rachel Mesquita (Grades 3-6).
  • Ambassadors (6th–12th grade parents) serve as communicators by reinforcing schoolwide information in a personal manner; as facilitators by cultivating community, volunteerism, and events; and representatives by meeting with upper school leadership. Our Adopt a Teacher program is also a component of this team. Led by Damaris Cruz (Grades 6-8) and Sylvia Delgado (Grades 9-12).
