Fayerweather doesn’t just welcome parental engagement - we depend on it. Fayerweather parents bring their talents, energies, and passions to the school every day. There are dozens of ways to engage: from the Board of Directors to the Parent Association; from annual community events like the Art of Craft to treasured school-day traditions like Project Days; from classroom field trips to parent education nights. In a small school everyone’s help and support is needed and valued!
More than 90% of Fayerweather families also support the school’s Annual Fund - a clear measure of their belief in the value of a Fayerweather education. With additional support from our extended community of grandparents, alumni, and other friends, we also completed recent capital campaigns to expand and renovate our building in 2005 and build a brand-new playground in 2014. Donations to Fayerweather support our students, teachers and programs today - and also ensure that the benefits of a Fayerweather education will be available for generations to come.
