When Caryl, our head of school asked me if I would be interested in chairing the Greenwood Parent's Association, I did not hesitate for a moment before accepting this honor. Greenwood School has created a nurturing but academically challenging environment for our son to learn and grow and it is a great pleasure that I give back to this school and the amazing faculty responsible for my son's positive journey.
As a parent of a Greenwood student you are automatically a member of the Parent Association. The Greenwood Parents Association’s mission is to promote the aims and ideals of The Greenwood School; to build and strengthen a sense of community among parents, students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the school; to foster a cooperative and working relationship between parents and Greenwood; to support the faculty and staff; and finally, to assist the Head of School and administration in maintaining good public relations among Greenwood and the community-at-large.
As we all know, raising a child who learns differently can be an isolating and emotional journey, and one that can only truly be understood by those who walk a similar road. The Parent Association is a place where fellow travelers can come together as a community to listen, to share wisdom, to give back and to learn. Most importantly, it is a way for parents, especially new parents, to access the support of the Greenwood community.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions or assist with any concerns.
