Parents, alums and community members are closely involved in the life of the school. Much of the school's richness and vitality is due to their contributions of time and expertise. Parents serve as class representatives, participate on the Board and its committees, chaperone field trips, help with admissions by meeting with prospective parents, support and attend school events and share their talents and interests in the classrooms.

List of 4 items.

  • The Parent Association

    The Parent Association is an all-volunteer organization made up of parents and guardians of Fayerweather students. You are automatically a member! The PA exists to promote a sense of community among students, parents, faculty and staff. We strive to support the school through fundraising, social events and parent education.

    There are two Classroom Representatives from each class who work with the teachers to enrich the academic and social life of the school. The PA meets on the first Wednesday of the month. You can become more actively involved in the Parent Association by volunteering for events throughout the year.
  • Parent Ambassadors

    Parent Ambassadors connect with prospective and new Fayerweather families. You’ll greet families at events, make phone calls to families inquiring about Fayerweather, and in general, encourage the community spirit between current families and those new to our school.
  • Annual Fund Captain

    Parent Captains, representing every classroom, serve as volunteers for the Annual Fund. Their role is to help educate fellow families on the importance of the Annual Fund and to encourage their participation. Captains are a vital part of the fundraising team and promote Fayerweather’s ambitious goal of 100% parent participation in the Annual Fund.
  • Alumni Association and Class Agents

    Fayerweather encourages alumni to visit often and to remain involved with the school. Participation as an alumna/us is a wonderful way to stay connected with fellow graduates and helps to strengthen the school for future generations. We hold several events throughout the year, including a reunion, Pizza Night for young alumni, an Alumni Parent Reception at the Unit Play, and various alumni panels. For more information, email us at and follow our Facebook page.
In addition to the Parent Association, there are various committees at the school to support different initiatives. Parents are encouraged to join one that matches their interest. Meetings happen on a regular basis and are listed on the online calendar.
