Parent/Guardian Partnership

Family Involvement

Education at Catlin Gabel is a partnership between family and school, where parents and guardians play an essential role in student success and the life of the community.

Communication with Faculty & Staff

The school communicates regularly with families and provides opportunities to respond with ideas and input. Families receive divisional newsletters weekly, updates by email as needed, and access to teacher blogs that provide detail about students’ activities and experiences. Visibility into school-wide initiatives and activities is provided through the Head of School blog, Town Hall meetings, Caller magazine, email announcements, parent/guardian portal, and Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram social media platforms.

Parent-Faculty Association (PFA)

The Catlin Gabel Parent Faculty Association works across all divisions to support academic excellence, contribute to school initiatives, and foster community spirit.

Volunteer Opportunities

We thank you in advance for everything you do to enrich our children’s educational experience and strengthen our community. Catlin Gabel is fully enriched by our volunteers who generously give time to all areas of the school. We welcome parent/guardians, alumni and their families, and friends to be part of our unique community.

Opportunities to volunteer include assistance with classroom activities and field trips; book shelving in the library; food preparation for parent-teacher gatherings; and organizational help for performances and festivities. Volunteer ambassadors support our Open House and Host Family program, and serve as Parent Faculty Association grade representatives. The school also depends on volunteers to chaperone Outdoor Education and class overnight trips, and to organize and run the annual Auction fundraiser.
