Our Parents Association

Collectively, we all share the responsibility of making our school the best place for our children.

The Parents Association (PA) was founded in 1983 and formalized in 2003 to establish formal support of our active community of involved parents. There are no dues, and all parents of enrolled students are automatically members. PA meetings are listed on the school web calendar, in the Waldorf Weekly, and on the PA resource page (linked in the Parent Portal), all parents are encouraged to attend.

  • Build a strong WSB community.
  • Enhance parent satisfaction.
  • Keep our school excellent.

Each class in the school, including the Children’s Garden, has a Class Parent who provides support by assisting the class teacher, connecting class families, facilitating communication, assisting with PA functions, and representing their class at Parents Association meetings. PA meetings benefit most by having a large representation so attendance is important for all parents. PA Vice-Chairs are responsible for distributing general announcements to all parents in their division.

 

Waldorf senior leadership attends all PA meetings to hear from parents about current topics and concerns. Parents have the opportunity to hear from the leadership what is happening at the school. Active parents also find a group who share many of the same values and parenting issues. Collectively, we all share the responsibility of making our school the best place for our children, and demonstrating to our children the importance of community involvement.
