  • Our Mission

    The Forsyth Country Day School Parents' Association supports the school's academic, development, fine arts, performing arts, social, and athletic objectives by encouraging volunteerism, raising and disbursing funds, promoting communication within the school, and conducting events that increase school spirit and camaraderie.
  • Our History

    Since 1982, the Parents' Association at Forsyth Country Day School has made significant contributions to the school's programs and facilities. Every parent or guardian at FCDS is a member of the Parents' Association. Our success as a Parents' Association is dependent on parent volunteers who give unselfishly of their time and energy in order to make our school great. The Parents' Association Board is comprised of seven elected officers (President, Preschool Vice President, Lower School Vice President, Middle School Vice President, Upper School Vice President, Executive Secretary, and Treasurer), 16 Parent Representatives from each grade (Preschool 2s through Grade 12), and four division secretaries (one from the Preschool, Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools). This Board has voting authority for any Parents' Association decisions.

    All parents are invited to attend Parents' Association business meetings which are conducted periodically throughout the school year.

  • Book Fair

    This committee works with the Librarians to execute the annual book fair, which is typically held for a week in November. This committee coordinates parent volunteers to staff the book fair for all hours it is open for sales for the week, assists with set up and clean-up, and coordinates snacks for volunteers. This is a large annual fundraiser for the library and the time commitment is several hours in the fall to plan and working during the fair in November.
  • Faculty & Staff Appreciation

    This committee plans and coordinates a lunch at school to honor our dedicated faculty and staff for all they do for our children. The lunch is typically held during one of the spring conference days. The time commitment for this committee will be a few hours in the spring to plan the event and attendance on the day of the lunch.
  • Grade Representatives

    Grade Reps serve as the representative for all the parents of their assigned grade. These volunteers attend monthly meetings with the division director, PA President and President-elect, and various other school employees monthly to discuss school and division specific upcoming events, any upcoming changes or areas of concern, and other topics as they arise. Grade reps are also responsible for communicating all pertinent information to all parents in their grades and assisting in recruiting parent volunteers for various functions as necessary. The division reps and directors determine the best time for the monthly meetings amongst themselves. The meetings typically last approximately 1.5 hours each month.
  • Lower School Classroom Parent

    The Classroom parent is for Lower School classes. These parents assist the teachers in planning and executing holiday parties, end of year celebrations, field trip volunteers, and other needs as they arise. The time commitment varies throughout the year.
  • Music on the Lawn

    Another signature “fun” raiser, this event happens in the fall, usually the first week of school, and again in the spring. This committee is responsible for coordinating food trucks and live musical entertainment for the event. The time requirement for this committee will be a few hours over the summer to plan the fall event, and a few hours again in winter to plan the spring event, as well as attendance at both events.
  • Wonderful Wednesday

    Each division has a Wonderful Wednesday Coordinator who is responsible for planning a day each month to provide food or treats for the division’s faculty and staff as a thank you for their service to our students.
