On John Pingry's 200th birthday, please consider giving to the School, and help us to unlock a generous challenge grant!
Pingry parents are welcomed into our community just as eagerly as our students. We also welcome their involvement.
We’re committed to keeping our families informed and abreast of the school’s culture, policies, procedures, and practices to enhance everyone’s experience. We also provide information about school events and opportunities that not only further a student’s academic success, but also benefit the entire family.
Please visit our School News and All-School Calendar often, watch for our weekly Big Blue Bulletin emails, familiarize yourself with our Key Dates, and continue the conversation on our social media channels! And, if you have any specific questions, please contact Ann Swenson, Associate Director of the The Parent Fund in the Office of Institutional Advancement.
The Pingry School Parents’ Association (PSPA)
As the official parent organization of Pingry, this group has one objective in mind: To increase involvement and create a sense of belonging for all members of the Pingry community. The PSPA is a financially self-sustaining organization, and all parents of current students are considered members.
Although its primary audience is current parents and families, The PSPA also works to build community with the administration, faculty, and staff by hosting a range of social events and informational sessions on the Short Hills and Basking Ridge Campuses.
The PSPA is overseen by a 12-member PSPA Executive Board, which consists of six elected positions and six positions appointed by the PSPA President, and meets monthly. Additionally, there are 60+ Advisory Board members in leadership positions who oversee individual PSPA events and activities.
What is the best way to get involved? Volunteer—your contributions count! It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet other parents and feel connected to our community. Whether you have a lot of time or just a little, your involvement is encouraged—visit the Volunteer Opportunities page to see how you might lend a hand. The PSPA values your opinions and looks forward to your active participation.
The PSPA holds approximately 60 events each school year. We couldn’t do it without the amazing 200+ parent volunteers who organize and execute for our school and, of course,
for our children.
A message from the PSPA President
On behalf of The Pingry School Parents’ Association, I would like to extend a warm welcome to returning and new Pingry families. The PSPA plays an important role in supporting this fantastic school by building community. In the past six years, our family has experienced meeting great people and we have created lifelong friendships.
Some of our favorite events include Friday Night Lights, parent socials, and The Spring Soirée. We love to host the Teacher Appreciation Breakfast, contribute to local New Jersey organizations through our community service efforts, and celebrate our diverse community at the annual event, A Taste of Pingry.
The PSPA holds approximately 60 events each school year. We couldn’t do it without the amazing 200+ parent volunteers who organize and execute for our school and, of course, for our children. If you would like to meet new people, share your talents, or learn something new, we would love to have you play a vital role in our organization. Whether you have a couple of hours to spare or would like to chair an event, the more the merrier!
