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 meeting are held monthly either in the morning after drop-off, or just after the school day ends. A schedule for PA meetings is available here.

  • 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 helps the teacher coordinate and communicate with all 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.

 

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.
