Welcome to the PA!

Welcome to the PA!

Dear CDS Parents,

I’d like to extend a warm WELCOME to our new families and a WELCOME BACK to those of you who are returning. I hope that your summer was filled with fun and relaxation and that you made a lot of wonderful memories with family and friends. It’s hard to believe school is starting, but, here we are. I look forward to the things we can accomplish together to make this a great school year for our children.

For those who are wondering, the Parents’ Association’s mission is to support CDS students, teachers and administrators by building an involved and engaged community of parents. Throughout the year, we host several events to help build relationships between CDS families and the school. Family Fun Nights, Movie Nights and our annual Gala are just a few of the events we hope you and your family will attend. They are fun and a great way to meet other CDS families as we all work together to grow our amazing CDS community spirit.

The best way to get involved in the PA is to volunteer your time, help or expertise for any of the many events the PA holds during the year. All parents are welcomed (and encouraged) to volunteer for any events that fit into your schedule. As a working mom myself, I understand all the time demands we face as parents of school age children so future volunteers already have my deep appreciation. Please take a moment to review and return our PA Volunteer Sheet.

I look forward to meeting and working with all CDS parents to help strengthen the bonds that make Chatham Day School such a special environment for our children.
