Parent Association

Park City Day School's Parent Association, led by President, Melissa O'Brien, provides leadership and volunteer time in support of the School's mission, programs, faculty and students.

Letter from the President

We welcome all our new families who've chosen to enroll their students at our wonderful school and we are all looking forward to another fantastic year for our extended school community.    I am pleased to be serving as the Parent Association President and am looking forward to working with the wonderful group of parents who have volunteered their time to be PA Officers and Committee Heads.  All parents are automatically members of the PA and are encouraged to attend our monthly meetings.  More detailed information about the PA is included below.  

The Social Events Committee has planned some fun family events for the year, including the family Back-to-School Picnic,  Fall Festival, and others.  While details about the others will follow, we cordially invite you, on behalf of our Family Ambassadors on the PREP Committee, to attend our first social event of the 2014/2015 school year – a New Family Social @ Willow Creek Park on Wednesday, August 13 10am-12pm.  While focused on welcoming our new families, we hope all those of our extended community able to join in will do so. 

Listed below are the PA Officers and Committee Heads with a description of each Committee’s function for the school. The PA can’t survive without the help and talents of our amazing parents, so we encourage you to pick a committee and join the fun.  It’s a great way to meet some new friends and support your school at the same time. 

Please feel free to contact me, or any of the PA Officers or Committee Heads, if you have questions  or would like to become involved in one of our great committees.  You may also want to add the PA email address ( to your list of contacts so that communications and e-vites sent from the PA do not accidentally end up in your SPAM.  If you are a member of Facebook, please check out our Facebook page and consider “liking” PCDS which will help raise our profile in the community as well as providing another link between you and the school.  

Best Regards,

Melissa O'Brien, President 2014-2015

Parent Association Committees

Room Parent Committee:  darlene millard and kate reichartinger

The room parents assist their class teachers in planning parties, field trips and enlisting volunteers from their class parents for special events.  Room parents will need to commit to attending the monthly PA meetings and sending email communications from the PA to their class parents.  They are the crucial link in keeping the lines of communication open between parents,  the PA and the school.  Time commitment for a room parent depends on the class and the teachers.  Generally, more time is required in the PS-2nd grade classes, due to more parties and field trips in those age groups.  A great idea is to have 2 or 3 parents work as a team to split the duties.  If you want to become more involved in your child’s class and spend some time at school during the day, we would love to have you as a room parent.

Social Events Committee:  kim frauenberg and aimee jaquet

The Social Events Committee is charged with the planning and execution of all special events put on by the PA including, the Back-to-School BBQ, Fall Festival, Book Fair events, Family Nights and Family Swim Day. Time commitment for this committee will be heavier at the beginning of the year with the planning of the Fall Festival in late September, but will be minimal the rest of the year.  If you like to plan and/or give parties or would just like to encourage family participation at the school, this is the committee for you.

Teacher Appreciation Committee: anne cummins and bayard karch

The parents of each class are asked to provide a special treat once a year for the faculty and staff.  The Teacher Appreciation Committee organizes the monthly event schedule and works with the Room Parents to facilitate the events which include special lunches and dinners for the staff on holidays and teacher conference days and other special surprises.   These monthly treats are wonderful ways for parents to remind the faculty and staff how much they are valued and appreciated.  The time commitment for this committee is limited and generally involves about one day a month.  

Yearbook Committee:  seeking volunteers

The Yearbook Committee will use an on-line website to produce a special keepsake of the school year for all of the students.  Time commitment for the yearbook will depend on the type of project the committee decides to pursue.  You would be working on your home computer to upload and arrange photos on pages of the yearbook. If you enjoy taking pictures and/or scrapbooking and have some spare time to spend at home on the computer, we could certainly use your help.

prep ambassadors: tess miner-farra

The Parent Resource and Education Program (PREP) Ambassadors are a sub-committee of the PCDS Marketing Committee.  We serve as an extension of the Admissions Office, providing a resource and support system for new families, existing families and prospective PCDS families. Our mission is to welcome new families and foster community among all of our PCDS families.  Please feel free to contact the ambassadors listed below with any questions you may have regarding the larger Park City community, PCDS or specific PCDS classes/grade levels.  We have included contact information for each Ambassador as well as the grade levels their children will be entering in the fall and the neighborhood in which they live.  Those interested in joining the PREP Ambassadors group are encouraged to reach out to Committee Chair Tess Miner-Farra.
