TMI Family Association

Welcome to the Family Association of TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas! The parent-volunteers who make up this dedicated group of community leaders serve the school as Ambassadors of our excellent educational institution. The Family Association strives to take an active role in engaging all parents of the TMI community to reach out to new families, foster relationships among parents, enhance communication from the school and establish a legacy that will lay the foundation for a stronger parent community that is engaged in school activities and positive growth. 

The Family Association holds periodic meetings which are open to all parents to attend. At the general meetings, parents will have an opportunity to learn about what is happening at the school, changes that are in the works, programs that are being developed, the overall status of the school, and have an opportunity to visit and hear from the Headmaster. Various programs and key speakers are scheduled for each meeting to engage parents and foster a deeper understanding about our community. 

Falling under the umbrella of the Family Association is the Parent Advisory Council where a selected group of Middle School and Upper School parents are actively engaged in discussions with the school administration about policy topics that will impact the community with positive change. 

At TMI, every parent is a member of the Family Association. We encourage you to become active members throughout the year, participating in various events and working to build a stronger community.
