Parents

Derby is, above all else, a community - one that emphasizes the participation of students, staff, and parents. Whether you join a Pre-Kindergarten class for a cooking lesson, chaperone a Middle School class trip, or work behind the scenes at the Derby Fall Fair, you'll have ample opportunity to contribute to your child's learning environment and to become a member of a unique community.

For Derby parents, "back to school" takes on a whole new meaning
 

Throughout the school year, the Derby community has numerous parent-inclusive events. From September's Curriculum Nights, which allow you a glimpse at your child's new classroom and a chance to greet other parents, to June's Derby Day processional and the sweet closure it brings to the school year, you can participate in the full range of experience that Derby offers.

You may be surprised to find that your child's school community becomes an important part of your world, too.

The Derby Parents Association

Every parent of a Derby Academy student is a member of the Parents Association (PA) at Derby. The Parents Association provides opportunities for parents to connect, communicate, support and participate in the life of the school by contributing their time and talents. Committed to building a strong parent community, the PA welcomes new parents, sponsors social gatherings, provides opportunities to hear from the school and outside experts on subjects of interest, and sponsors an array of student activities and events.

The Parents Association holds regular meetings and all parents are encouraged to attend and participate in discussions and decision-making.
