Parents

We're proud to be a school that feels like a family.

We make space for parents and students to explore the meaning of independence, to consider the responsibilities of being a member of both a family and a community. We collaborate with parents to cultivate healthy growth, productive habits, satisfying relationships and bright outcomes. All Peddie parents are automatically members of the Peddie Parents Association. Whether you are near or far, explore the many ways you can be an active member of our Peddie family.

 

Peddie Parents Association

The purpose of the Peddie Parents Association is to support harmonious relationships between parents or guardians and the faculty, students and administration of the Peddie School, thereby contributing to the general welfare of the school.

Welcome to the PPA!

All Peddie parents are automatically members of the Peddie Parents Association - no dues or registration required. Our goal is to support all parents and to serve as a resource for questions or information throughout their child's Peddie journey, so please don't hesitate to contact any one of us if we can be of help.

We encourage you to get involved in our organization - there is no better way to experience the warmth and energy of the Peddie community than by jumping in to attend and/or volunteer at events. Whether you live close by or far away, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in ways that fit your schedule. See below for a listing of PPA events and ways that you can be a part of our efforts.

Ala viva!

Nora Eldessouky
President, Peddie Parents Association

Volunteer Opportunities

The Peddie Parents Association provides an array of committees that support the students, faculty and staff and help parents engage with the life of the school. Some of committees, such as the Pre-Prom Committee and Spring Social, help plan events while other committees such as Common Ground and Faculty & Staff Appreciation, support the school throughout the year.  There’s something for everyone!
