Parents’ Association Events & Volunteer Opportunities

Parent Ambassadors
The Parent Ambassador Program utilizes seasoned SMS parents from each discipline to act as a welcoming resource for new families. Parent Ambassadors have extensive knowledge of our community with regard to “how things work” and “what to expect” when you join SMS.  The goal of the Ambassadors Program is to establish a network of communication for conversation, support and feedback for our new families.

Grade Representatives 
Grade Representatives act as hosts for their respective grades. Two parents from each grade and from different disciplines help with communication amongst the parent body. This position requires a two-year commitment in order to establish continuity.
