Ways to be Involved
Parent volunteers are involved with classroom and grade-level events, serving as room coordinators, field trip chaperones, and planning activities that enrich the curriculum, making the experiences tangible for the children while strengthening the home-and-school connection. Events such as the Book Fair, the Auction, and the Spring Community Picnic provide additional volunteer and philanthropic opportunities to support the school.
Your contribution to Primary Day makes a significant difference in the experiences of every one of our students. We encourage you to participate in any way that you can and we thank you in advance for your support.
Primary Day Parents Association 2021-2022
We are honored to represent our parent community at Primary Day. This is a special place for our children to spend the most important years of their educational careers.
The purpose of the Parents Association is to advance and enrich the sense of community of the school; to promote cooperation, communication and unity of spirit among parents, faculty, staff, trustees and students; to encourage understanding among parents concerning the school’s objectives; and to provide a means for parents to be of service to the school. The Parents Association does not participate in policy making and/or the development of curriculum. The PDPA is comprised of all parent volunteers and welcomes involvement from all PDS parents in events and meetings.
