Every SPS parent belongs to the Parents Association, as do former parents who wish to remain actively involved. Parents are welcome and encouraged to add grandparents to the Parents Association correspondence list. We recognize the special role that grandparents often play in a child’s life, and we are happy to keep them informed.

St. Paul’s communicates with parents as a group through written correspondence, e-mail newsletters, the School website (both public and password-protected areas), and publications. Of course, parents also have direct contact with advisers, teachers, and administrators, regarding their own child(ren) and specific questions.

If you have any questions about the Parents Association and/or the Parents Annual Fund Committee, please contact Karen Woods, director of parent resources, at kwoods@sps.edu or (603) 229-4734.

PARENT REPRESENTATION

Each year a president of the Parents Association is appointed and that position includes a seat on the Board of Trustees. The 2016-19 Parents Association co-presidents are Jill and John Avery P’17,'20.

ANNUAL MEETING

The Parents Association holds its annual meeting during Family Weekend each year. The meeting provides a venue for parents to discuss issues related to the School. Family Weekend will be held on October 28-29, 2016. The meeting will follow morning Chapel on Saturday, before the mini school.

PARENT FUND

The Parents Fund is a vital effort of the Parents Association. The Alumni Fund and the Parents Fund comprise the Annual Fund, which provides unrestricted contributions toward the School’s operating budget. Together, these funds typically provide approximately 15% of the annual operating revenue of the School, helping to bridge the gap between full tuition and the total actual cost of educating each student.
