Parents Association

Speyer has an extremely active and energetic Parents Association dedicated to building a sense of inclusion and community.

The guiding purpose of the PA is to support the leadership of the School and to foster and maintain a sense of respect and fellowship. By sponsoring an array of school-wide programs and events, the PA strives to enrich Speyer as a whole.

Every parent at Speyer is invited to be a part of the PA, and there are numerous opportunities for parents to donate their unique expertise and skills. Run entirely by parent volunteers, the PA provides a variety of engaging and enjoyable community-wide activities throughout the year. The Speyer PA is comprised of six standing committees. Committee meetings are open to any interested parent.

If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact pa@speyerschool.org.
