Sandy Spring Friends School



Parents Association

Our Parents Association provides a unique and vital vehicle for exchanging ideas, supporting one another, and, most importantly, celebrating our amazing student population.

PA Members at the Auction

 The SSFS Parents Association (PA)—made up of all parents and guardians—is an inclusive, welcoming community with one primary goal: to assist in upholding the singular and extraordinary spirit of Sandy Spring Friends School. The PA accomplishes this goal by planning and hosting a variety of enjoyable community events and recognition luncheons as well as supporting faculty and staff as grade parents, committee members, and volunteers.

Current parents are encouraged to access the Parent Portal for additional information!

"SSFS has not only brought our daughter a sense of belonging and community, but through my volunteering efforts at PA events, SSFS has turned out to be a community our entire family enjoys together."
