Every Parent Is a Member
The SWS Parent Association works to create a vibrant parent community through the sponsorship of community social events, parent education programs, coordination of volunteer support, and community service—as well as supports the educational program and operations of the School by increasing parental awareness of and interest in the school.
Parent Association Priorities for 2020-21
We acknowledge that everyone is stretched as we work and learn in ways we never anticipated—without the same avenues of support we’ve come to rely on. The Parent Association (PA) priorities this year will be grounded in support: for our class reps, for our equity work, and for our financial well-being as a school—because ultimately these things support our children. We invite you to join us in this important and fulfilling work, while building community at the same time!
In normal years, festivals bring our community together around a seasonal theme, giving us a chance to meet one another and celebrate with food and special events. Support from the Parent Association is at the heart of our festival life and unites students, parents, and teachers in the joy of human connection. Our autumn Michaelmas and Harvest festivals, Winter Faire, and Spring Parade and May Faire events are just a few opportunities to bring time and talent to enrich our community. We look forward to resuming our festival life in the future!
Parent Association committees connect our school with the broader community, whether we’re planting trees or gathering food for those experiencing homelessness. They also strive to make our own community stronger: our Parent and Faculty Equity Committee actively supports the SWS commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. And our Inspire committee and Community Fund representatives assist with fundraising campaigns that are critical to the health of our school.
Teacher dedicate themselves to creating and delivering engaging lessons to our children, continually adapting to student needs and to challenging circumstances such as COVID-19. In December and June, parents organize Teacher Appreciation events for each class that might include voluntary contributions to a teacher gift, a classroom need, or a cause the teacher supports. Our teachers are renewed by these gifts of gratitude and bring that energy right back into the classroom.
