Parent Faculty Association

We have a wonderful Parent Faculty Association made up of parents from across the school. They volunteer with Grade levels, events for parents on and off campus, help with 'spirit' opportunities for our students, and so much more! Read below to discover some of the opportunities that our parent volunteers organize! 

Mission Statement
The purpose of the Parent Faculty Association is to build community, foster a welcoming atmosphere, celebrate ASP’s international diversity, and provide a connection between families, faculty and staff. 

Neighborhood, Country, and Language Groups

Neighborhood groups bring together families living near each other, while language and country groups connect families who come from the same country or who speak the same native language. Each group is led by a volunteer liaison who will organize opportunities to meet throughout the year, whether in-person or via zoom. Liaisons are also happy to answer questions and help you learn about life here in France.

Parent Coffees 

The PFA collaborates with the Lower, Middle, and Upper School to offer different parent coffees throughout the year, including division-wide and grade-level specific events. These meetings are an opportunity for parents to get to know one another, and to become informed on certain topics that are of interest for each respective grade. These gatherings include informative presentations by school administrators and faculty, as well as ample opportunities for questions and open discussion. Generally, two Parent Coffees are offered per grade level each year.

Senior Parents Group

Senior year is a momentous event for the future graduates and their families; the Senior Parents Group helps plan special activities to support our hard-working seniors and to celebrate their special year. The Senior Parents Group coordinates announcements, senior photos, monthly treats, and senior t-shirts, in addition to organizing the prom, the senior award luncheon, graduation dinner, class gift, and senior directory. Please email the Senior Parent Group for more information.

Parent Activities and Community Service

The PFA offers a variety of activities for parents. Whether you want to meet other parents, take a tour, serve the community, enjoy culinary experiences, or get in shape, we have something for you! You can view our current list of activities here and sign up if needed. New activities are continually added, so check back often! 

We would like to highlight a special tradition at ASP. As a community, we work together to bring food to refugees living on the streets of Paris. Every two weeks, parents gather at ASP to prepare sandwiches which are then distributed directly to the refugee population on the streets of Paris by Utopia 56, a refugee aid organization. We would love your help! Please see the Parent Activities link for details and to sign up.
