The purpose of the Dublin School Parents' Association is to assist parents in working together with the School as equal partners with a joint sense of purpose -- the well-being of students. The association also strives to keep parents well informed of Dublin's programs, services, and needs on an ongoing basis; support fund-raising efforts; encourage qualified students to attend Dublin School; and welcome "new parents" to the Dublin community.
All parents, regardless of geographic location or class affiliation, are members and no fees are required. Participation in the activities and events sponsored by the Parents’ Association strengthens ties to Dublin School and presents opportunities to support the School community.
The Parents’ Association presents informal gatherings and social events for parents and students. Guest speakers present information on topics that have a direct bearing on student life at Dublin, in and out of the classroom. Refer to the Parents’ Association Events for this year’s activities. We invite parents, grandparents, and guardians to participate in the Parents’ Association meetings/workshops and activities whenever possible. To better involve those families living at a distance, these workshops often coincide with the day that students return to campus after a break to take advantage of parents who are driving their child back to campus.
The Parents’ Association also assists the Development Office with Dublin’s Annual Fund campaign. Our parent volunteers are critical in making each year’s drive a success! Opportunities such as phonathons, writing thank you notes, and making calls all help give our Annual Fund program the personal feeling that is a hallmark of Dublin School.
Please contact Erika Rogers at (603) 563-1230 with any questions or concerns you have and thank you in advance for supporting Dublin School.
