Parent Association at Friends Select

All parents of Friends Select students are members of the Parent Association (PA). Its mission is to support Friends Select School as a learning community rooted in Quaker values.

Led by a PA board and several committees, members of the PA work with the school administration to achieve the following goals:

  • Serve as a communications link between the school and families, particularly through PA Class Representatives.
  • Facilitate parent financial and volunteer support to the school.
  • Provide opportunities for FSS families to engage in service activities.
  • Create opportunities for parent education through lectures, speakers and discussion sessions.
  • Provide opportunities for parents to meet socially.
