Parents' Club at The Fay School
On Behalf of The Fay School Parents Club, we would like to officially welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. We look forward to reconnecting with returning families, faculty, staff and extending a warm welcome to our new families.
The Fay School is not just a building; it is a warm, welcoming, and an affable community full of staff who are committed to the growth and education of our children, parents who give of their time to support the staff and students, and students who love coming to campus ready to learn. Over the years, this community becomes a second home, a place where students want to be each day and a place they want to come back to visit when they move on to the next phase of their school years.
The Parents Club plays a significant role in our community as the conduit for collaboration and communication between the parent body and the school-which brings forth a nurturing warmth to our 8.5-acre campus. The school is grounded in parent involvement - whether that be the participation in our highly anticipated yearly Book Fair, the seasonal decorations that welcome a festive spirit to Fay, as well as our highly anticipated yearly Gala.
Parents like you are critical to the continued success of the parents club. Through volunteering together, we build a stronger and more vibrant community that enhances the educational experience of our children. In the coming weeks, we invite you to explore the various volunteer opportunities that are sure to fit your interests/schedules.
We are excited to serve as this year's Parents Club co-chairs and are looking forward to introducing you to the many areas in which we can volunteer together to make 2021-2022 an unprecedented school year.

The annual Gala is an evening of celebration, support, and is the school’s largest fundraising event!

This group of parents helps in the library to re-shelve books, catalog new books, straighten shelves, and assist in checkouts during library days for classes.
