SHADE Parent Group
Student Home Association of Duke Ellington (SHADE) is a non-profit organization comprised of parents of Duke Ellington School of the Arts students.
SHADE’s mission is to work as a unified body for the benefit, promotion, and support of Duke Ellington. The officers are elected by SHADE members and serve for a term of one school year. Two parent representatives and two alternates from each of the eight arts majors make up the board of SHADE.
SHADE is a membership organization requiring a small membership fee to be paid at the beginning of the school year. Because you have selected Duke Ellington for your child’s education, you should be aware that in order for your child to perform at his or her best, your support and involvement is needed.
Meetings are held four times a year and all are invited to participate.
