Welcome to the Parent Association!

On this page you can find information about the Parent Association, all of the upcoming monthly Parent Association meetings, Waterford school events, the Parent Association Executive Committee, your Class Representative and parent volunteer opportunities.

What is the Parent Association?

As soon as your child enrolls at Waterford, you become a member of the Parent Association. Students, teachers, and families are partners, which means parents play an active, ongoing role in their children’s education. Welcome!

At Waterford School, all parents work closely with Waterford to expand the child’s education and opportunities beyond the classroom. The objective of the Parent Association is to build a community of parents who support our children and school by:

  • Volunteering parent support to the School in the form of planning, organizing, and implementing activities and programs that expand opportunities for our children.
  • Building community and understanding of Waterford’s mission, vision, and values, and therefore, creating partnership with our students and faculty both in and out of the classroom.
  • Offering a forum through which parents may learn about Waterford’s many programs and the issues of importance to them and their children.
  • Fostering a committed and dedicated family community.

Parent Passport Program

Waterford School Parent Passport

Following the interruptions and demands of pandemic protocols, Waterford is excited to welcome our parent community back to campus in 2022 – 2023 for many beloved and missed events. To help embrace the parent journey, we are launching the Parent Passport program. This year each parent or guardian has the opportunity to digitally “Stamp their Passport.” Collect enough stamps to earn a prize at the end of the year and the opportunity for a complimentary ticket for the Founders Gala. We’ll keep track of your stamps on your digital passport. 

If you attend five events, you will earn a special gift at the Spring BBQ. If you attend all of the first six events on the Parent Passport you will receive a complimentary ticket to the 2023 Founders Gala!
