The Parent Association supports the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh’s educational goals through parent involvement, helping to build and sustain the school community through effective communication. A Parent Association, while not a decision making body, works in partnership with the Board, Faculty, and Administration to further the goals of education and communication within the adult community and to assist those bodies toward the continued success of the school.
Mission Statement of the Parent Association: The Parent Association (PA) is dedicated to the healthy growth and development of the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh through building community, fostering education through the lifespan and nurturing the spirit in the social life.
The Parent Association seeks to:
- Help guide fundraising efforts
- Extend a welcome to new families, as well as direct any questions they may have through the proper channels of Administration and/or Faculty.
- Encourage parents’ donation of time and provide direction to the areas of need within the school.
- Provide a forum for dialogue regarding parents’ needs and concerns and to make recommendations to other school bodies.
Ideally, the parent association meets monthly. Meetings, which are open to all parents, will be announced in the school newsletter and on the school website.
