PAVE: Parent Alliance for Vistamar Education

PAVE brings together all Vistamar families in support of our school. All parents and guardians of Vistamar students are automatically members of PAVE. Membership is free, so join PAVE meetings at anytime and let your voice be heard.
In addition, a group of volunteer parents known as PAVE Council help bring together parent interests, concerns, and activities. Led by a president, the council members also include a secretary, grade representatives, and event chairs.
For more information, or to get involved, please contact any PAVE Council member. You can also fill out the parent volunteer interest form, or contact Associate Director of Development, Ana Mickle at 310-643-7377. Also, be sure to check Vistamar's weekly e-newsletter for volunteer information and additonal PAVE information.
