A Pre-K to Grade 12 Independent Quaker Day School Serving the Greater Durham-Chapel Hill Area

Parent-Staff Association

The mission of the Parent-Staff Association (PSA) is to foster a strong, cohesive all-school community. We do this by:

  • coordinating, supporting, and sharing volunteer-based efforts across all units of the school
  • communicating through Parent Update, evening meetings, Constant Contact email, the CFS website, and the CFS Parents Facebook page (www.facebook.com/groups/cfsparents)
  • creating learning and social opportunities for parents, families, alumni, staff, board, and the larger community.

Volunteers from all units, both on and off campus, have joined together to create an organization that creates the environment necessary to make every member of our community feel welcome. We invite everyone to attend any or all of the programs and meetings we have planned throughout the school year. We also encourage you to attend the PSA business meetings which are held the first Wednesday of the month in the Center conference room, alternating between 8:45 am. and 1:45 pm. Dates and times of evening programs and business meetings can be found on the monthly school calendar.

Below are the PSA committees for the school year. We invite you to join us by volunteering. Getting involved with the PSA is a fun and rewarding way to meet other parents and staff members and to take an active role in our school community.

Please feel free to contact us or any of the committee chairs with any questions, suggestions or concerns. We would love to hear from you. Please direct inquiries to: cfspsa@gmail.com.
