The school’s mission and core values shape everything we do at Aspen Country Day School, including the activity of the parent association. PIE helps foster a warm and welcoming sense of family at our school.

What does the Parent Association do?


Parents often remark upon how warm and welcoming the ACDS school community is, and Welcoming is an important role for the parent association. Families of new students are invited to a casual New Family Dinner the week before school, and there are many other occasions for children and for parents to build new friendships. 

Grade Ambassadors

Each Grade Ambassador is a liaison to the homeroom teacher and stands ready to help each parent get involved in various ways in the classroom. Grade Ambassadors also coordinate events to help parents to get to know one another, such as a series of fall potluck dinners.

Teacher Appreciation

Each spring, PIE hosts a teacher appreciation breakfast on the national "Teacher Appreciation Day."  Other gestures of gratitude take place throughout the year, including the Teacher Holiday Gift Drive.

Dining Hall

Helping out at lunchtime is an excellent opportunity to enrich the school life of your child and set a great example of giving back. Parent volunteers help make lunch a warm and inviting experience for the children.

Special Projects

There are plenty of ways to get involved throughout the school year, including the Aspen Country Day Cup golf outing, Blue Green Night gala benefit party, the All-School Play, Grandparents & Special Friends Day, and end-of-year Regatta and Family Picnic. Parents also help organize the Lost & Found, prepare for the Boarding School Fair, and help teachers set up special student presentations such as the Spanish Circus.
