Clam Festival 2022

NYA Parents’ Association

NYA Parents’ Association

Parents and guardians of current NYA students are automatically members of the Parents’ Association (PA). The PA works throughout the year to provide programmatic enrichment and guest speakers, fund student and faculty grants, and facilitate community building opportunities. In addition to our fundraising events, we also strive to make sure our families experience the same welcoming and supportive environment their students experience every day.

Clam Fest Booth 2019The town of Yarmouth’s biggest and longest running event is the Clam Festival. This year’s 57th festival takes place from July 19-21, 2024, and it is the PA’s biggest fundraiser. We have a booth and sell ice cream, popcorn, cookies, drinks, and more. We are always looking for volunteers to support the PA booth with set up, sales, restocking, and helping to break it down. Keep an eye out for an email sign-up for volunteer shifts. If you have questions, please contact Jess Lynch.
