Parent Faculty Association

Dear Catlin Gabel parents and guardians,

We offer you a very warm welcome to the Catlin Gabel Parent-Faculty Association (PFA). Working across four divisions, we form a parent-faculty collaborative that resonates throughout the whole Catlin Gabel community. Parents are a key resource, and the positive effect that we can have on the school and our children as we interact, connect, and volunteer is invaluable. As a current parent or guardian of a Catlin Gabel student, you are a welcome member of the PFA.

The information provided here outlines the PFA's role at the school, its mission, and its structure. Participation in the community and volunteerism are core values at Catlin Gabel. This section of the website outlines many of the volunteer opportunities available at the school, and it serves as a resource to all who wish to make a difference by contributing their time and talents.

We encourage you to join us in fostering fruitful collaborations within the parent body and with the school. Each parent's involvement serves as a point of connection with the Catlin Gabel community. We will continually present you with opportunities to become engaged through activities ranging from volunteering to committee work, and we welcome ideas for new parent-led initiatives.

As president and vice president of the PFA, one of our most important efforts is to foster inclusivity to strengthen our close-knit community. We look forward to working together and celebrating Catlin Gabel with you. See you at the parent community meetings!

Best regards,

Pamela Lloyd, president (parent ’20 and ’24)
Sarah Stascausky, vice president (parent ’24 and ’25)
