What is the Parents Association?

To infuse our school community with vitality through social gatherings, education, special events and fundraising that supports the vision of the Richmond Waldorf School to enrich the lives of our children and ourselves.
The PA serves as a strong voice for the parent community and works in partnership with the Board of Trustees, Faculty, and Administration.
The Parents Association is the community building organization of the Richmond Waldorf School. The PA serves as the vehicle for full parental, guardian, and family involvement in the life of the school community. The PA actively supports the work of the BOT, College, and faculty on behalf of our children and contributes to the intellectual, physical, and social climate of the school community. To that end, the PA will:

  • Invigorate and organize volunteer efforts by parents in such a way that nourishes, respects, and supports the volunteers.
  • Provide educational opportunities for parents that deepen understanding and appreciation for Waldorf Education, and strengthens our community and culture.
  • Provide a forum for parents to communicate and discuss issues and ideas.
  • Support endeavors of the school.
  • Use Special Funds for improvements that directly support Richmond Waldorf School, to include (but not limited to): physical improvements to the buildings and grounds, equipment, support for diversity, inclusion, and equity, community education, and grants for initiatives that have been generated by the PA that are in alignment with needs of the school.
