About the PSPA
The Pingry School Parents’ Association (PSPA) is the official parent organization of the Pingry school. All parents of current Pingry students are members. The PSPA is a financially self-sustaining organization, and all of our activities are funded by membership dues and funds raised at our benefit or other fundraising activities.
The PSPA has a very clear and single minded objective, and that is to increase involvement and create a positive sense of welcome and belonging for all members of the Pingry community.
Communities We Serve
The primary targets for PSPA activities are current parents and families, however the PSPA also works to build community within and between other key constituencies of the Pingry community such as the administration, staff and faculty.
Events and Activities
The PSPA achieves its community-building objective by organizing and hosting a range of activities for parents, students, faculty and staff on both our Short Hills and Basking Ridge campuses. There are a range of ways for parents to get involved. The PSPA hosts social events on both campuses, facilitates social events in homes, organizes informational sessions with school administration and other speakers of interest to parents, provides family service opportunities and much more.
The PSPA is overseen by the PSPA Executive Board. This 12-member board consists of six elected positions and six positions appointed by the PSPA President. The board meets monthly to assure that all activities are running smoothly and in accordance with the PSPA objective. There are an additional 60+ Advisory Board members in leadership positions. These Advisory Board members oversee an individual PSPA event or activity. Hundreds of parents volunteer to support PSPA activities each year. Whether they volunteer for an hour or run an event, the PSPA only functions as a result of these incredible volunteers!
The best way to engage with the community and to get the most out of the Pingry experience is to participate in events or better yet, join a volunteer team. Visit the Volunteer Opportunities page to see what's available.
