Parents' Association

Welcome to Soundview’s Parents’ Association!

All parents and guardians of students enrolled at Soundview are welcomed in the Parents’ Association. Soundview is a small but thriving community of students, teachers, and parents, and the Parents’ Association is influential in defining Soundview’s character and activities.

The mission of the Soundview Preparatory School Parents’ Association is to support the core values of the school and be a positive voice for the parent community in the service of the greater good of all students and adults. Working in partnership with the parent body, teachers and administrators, the Parents’ Association will offer the following opportunities to build a strong, vibrant and welcoming educational environment:

  • Provide an open forum and processes for the exchange of ideas that support the mission and core values of the school
  • Foster parental participation in school and outreach activities by developing meaningful and interesting volunteer opportunities
  • Raise funds in support of our mission and goals as well as for identified school needs

We sponsor and assist with a variety of activities  which begin with the Back-to-School picnic, and continue with Back-to-School Night, the School Store, Soundview’s Gala and Auction, and Texas Day, just to name a few. In addition to planning and organizing events, parent volunteers are instrumental in helping in a variety of other efforts, including the Annual Fund, mailings, sports games and this year, with course offerings for Mini-Term, the week that precedes the Talent Show in April. During Mini-Term, the School takes time out of the regular academic schedule not only for rehearsals, but also for a full panoply of non-traditional subjects from foreign films to sewing to career exploration.

Every volunteer effort by our parents is appreciated. Any talent, skill or service you have to offer is a valued contribution. Since many of our parents work during the day and/or have other commitments, we work around each parent’s schedule. Participation in projects and activities offers parents an opportunity to be a part of the Soundview community and make a genuinely needed and appreciated contribution.

Feel free to call if you would like to volunteer–we welcome any comments or suggestions and thank you for your support. Phone Linda Rae at school, 914-962-2780 ext 111.
