Parents' Association

 

Dear Families,

What is the PA?
The Parents’ Association (PA) is a volunteer organization that works in partnership with Providence Day School to foster an engaged and involved community. We do this through volunteer activities, fellowship opportunities, and fundraising events that support Providence Day School families, faculty and staff. If you are a parent or guardian of a Providence Day School student, you are automatically a member of the Parents’ Association. There is no fee to join and there are no requirements for membership. 

It is such an honor to serve as the Providence Day School’s Parents’ Association President this school year. My family and I have been members of this community for 14 years and PD is like a second family for us. Our Charger Family. I invite you to learn more about Providence Day School and our Parents’ Association. There are many opportunities to get involved and we are always looking for new ways to better connect with our community. We look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you.

Why I serve…
The Parents’ Association (PA) is a completely volunteer-run organization, so when I contemplated taking on the role of PA President, I gave it quite a bit of thought. I ultimately decided that serving our community in this capacity would help me give back to a community that supported me and my family through so much. In 2014, one of my sons suffered a life-altering hemorrhagic stroke while he was in his third grade classroom at PD. The minutes, hours, days, weeks and months afterward progressed in a haze. 

The PD community came together to support us - with prayers, meals, visits, cards -  with love. The PD community helped steer our traumatized family through our darkest hours and held us close with their love and generous spirit. To this day, I still don’t know every single person who helped lift us up during that period of time. So I pay it forward. I serve this community that gave so much to our family in the best way I know how. I serve with gratitude in my heart for all the members of our Charger Family.

Go Chargers!

Warmest regards,
Amy O’Neil
2021-2022 PA President
