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, talent, treasure, and testimonials. Volunteers 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.

  • Parent Association

    The Parent Association is an all-volunteer organization made up of parents and guardians of Fayerweather students. Parents are automatically members! The PA promotes a sense of community among families and staff within the school community. The PA strives 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.
  • Admissions Ambassadors

    Parent Ambassadors connect with prospective and new Fayerweather families. They greet families at events, make phone calls to families inquiring about Fayerweather, and encourage the community spirit between current families and those new to our school.

    Ambassadors can also get involved through the Word of Mouth Ambassador Program, becoming a contact on PeerPal, or becoming an Admissions tour guide.
  • Annual Fund Ambassadors

    Annual Fund Ambassadors, representing every classroom, help educate fellow families on the importance of the Annual Fund and encourage their participation. Ambassadors are vital to the fundraising team and promote Fayerweather’s ambitious goal of 100% parent participation in the Annual Fund.
  • Alumni League and Class Agents

    Fayerweather encourages alums to visit often and to remain involved with the school. Participation as an alum is a wonderful way to stay connected with fellow former students and helps to strengthen the school for future generations. We hold several events throughout the year, including an annual Bowling reunion, Alum Night at the Unit Play, and various activities. For more information, email us at and follow our Facebook and Instagram accounts.
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 interests. Meetings happen regularly and are listed on the online calendar.
