Welcome! All parents and guardians of enrolled students automatically become members of our Parent Council.
The purpose and mission of the Parent Council (PC) is:
- to build a parent-to-parent support network
- to support parent education
- to encourage and facilitate communication between parents and faculty/administration of the school
- to provide support for students’ activities, clubs and services
The Parent Council meets three times per year at the high school. Sprinkled throughout the year are social functions such as the Welcome BBQ and World Cafe where parents can meet and mingle. An admissions outreach program, designed to help to make transitions to our high school a positive experience, assigns mentor families to welcome new families.
Parent Education Program
Each year a number of programs are held to educate parents around current adolescent parenting topics. Through special events and our participation in the Parent Coalition of Bay Area High Schools (www.parentscoalition.net), we are proud to help maintain a well informed parent body.
Liaison with Administration
The Parent Council Steering Committee leads the PC and has at least two parent members from each grade level. This committee meets monthly with the Heads of Administration to keep lines of communication open and explore ways to support each other. To honor our faculty and staff each year, the Parent Council sponsors an appreciation event.
Hot Lunch Program
This is has long been a tradition at SF Waldorf High School and continues to be popular with students and parents alike. Once a week parent volunteers help provide a hot and healthy lunch for students and faculty. Students are required to stay on campus that day and all eat together in Herbst Hall or the adjoining patio. Proceeds from the lunch fund additional Parent Council programs.
The Parent Council distributes funds to student activities such as the literary magazine and holiday lunch that support its purpose and mission. The Parent Council recognizes and hails the parent volunteers who are so vital in maintaining fundraising programs like Hot Lunch and Spring Night.
