Our Community


The Dalton School has an accomplished and highly active Parents Association dedicated to helping maintain an inclusive school community.

The PA is run by parent volunteers who serve as officers on the PA Executive Board and as Grade Reps, House Parents and co-chairs and members of various committees. These volunteers work closely with the administration and faculty to create more than 120 events and meetings throughout the school year for parents, students, faculty, and staff.

PA-sponsored school-wide events include homecoming, skating party at Wollman Rink, holiday bazaar and lobby decorating celebration in December, visibility exhibition, and events hosted by Parents of Children of Color (POCOC) and the various neighborhood and community service committees.

Family and student offerings for the First Program include bingo and movie afternoons, Share Our Stories, book fair, spring fair, and multicultural festival, while Middle School families enjoy bingo and movie afternoons.

Programs for parents include monthly topic coffees or evening speakers, Back to School Night, a parent chorus, documentary series, book club, an annual Bollywood Night sponsored by Sangam, and author’s night.

We support the entire Dalton community and each other through the following committees: Safety Patrol, Teachers Appreciation, Buddy Program, Hestia (supporting emergency needs of the Dalton community), Athletics, Community Service, Sportswear, Faculty Grants, Parent Leadership Workshop, Gay Straight Alliance, Party Registries, Parents in Action, Treasurer’s Committee and Neighborhood Committees.

The Dalton community is invited and encouraged to join fellow parents in planning and enjoying these programs. If you have any questions, you can contact us at pa@dalton.org.
