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

The Parents Association (PA) was formed in 2003 to establish formal support of our active community of involved parents. There are no dues, and all parents are automatically members by enrolling a student. PA meetings are listed on the school caledar.

  • 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. The Class Parent supports the teacher and helps the teacher coordinate and organize projects with parents in their class. They attend all PA meetings, which ensures each class has a voice in PA decisions. They also take notes and report to any parents who were unable to attend. These meetings benefit most by a large representation, so attendance is important for all parents. PA Vice Chairs are responsible for emailing all parents in their division with general school announcements.

 

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 demonstrates to our children the importance of community involvement.
