All parents of SDFAS are members of the Parents Association or PA.
Every year a board constituted of four members is elected. Parents can also join a committee to help prepare or chair a specific event, such as Le Marché de Noël, or La Kermesse.
The PA maintains a website that keeps parents informed. All upcoming events are also announced in the school newsletter: l’Écho.
Current parents can access more information on the secured part of the website: parents portal.
For more information on the PA, contact a member of the board: firstname.lastname@example.org.
