Parents Association

Supporting the Friends community

The Friends School Parents Association is a dynamic, welcoming organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the children and inspiring a sense of community by providing a structure for parents and family members to become involved in the activities of the school. We are always looking for parent volunteers, and there is a way for everyone to get involved, from serving on a committee, volunteering in the classroom, working on projects from home, or planning an event. You can volunteer on your own time.

The Parents Association has raised more than $100,000 over the last five years — money that has been used to support a wide range of programs and materials that supplement and enhance the student experience, such as instruments for the 4th and 5th grade band and orchestra, makerspace items for the Middle School and a robotics kit and woodworking lathe for the Upper School

All parents of students enrolled in Friends School are members of our organization, and we encourage you to get involved.
