SGS Family Association

Meet the SGS Family Association (SFA)

SGS welcomes and supports parental involvement, and encourages parents to partner with SGS in support of their daughter’s educational experience. This is why all SGS parents/guardians are members of the SGS Family Association (SFA). SFA is a 100% volunteer organization and exists to further the school mission by supporting the efforts of the faculty and staff, strengthening the school + family community, and extending the reach of SGS to the broader Seattle community through a culture of participation and volunteerism.  We recognize that families have many commitments, so we do not require a certain number of volunteer hours. However, we depend on the involvement of our family community to support the many opportunities that SGS provides. Volunteer activities are designed to give everyone the chance to do something that fits their schedule and life demands—whether it’s an hour once a year or once a week, we welcome your energy and enthusiasm!  SFA plays a fundamental role in the life of SGS by coordinating a variety of community-building activities, including the SGS Back to School BBQ, Class Socials and Service events and Teacher Appreciation activities.

 


Join Us for a Meeting

Monthly meetings typically take place during the second week of each month. To accommodate as many families as possible we try to implement a monthly cadence of alternating evening and morning meetings.  Exceptions due to the school schedule will be noted in the school calendar and Friday Forum. Dial-in conferencing can be arranged for those who wish to attend but cannot be there in person. Each meeting includes a collaborative (and often lively!) discussion among the attendees, and the remaining time is spent on SFA specific activities and tasks. We hope to see you at our next meeting! Look to the Friday Forum for details on upcoming meetings and click the links below to read the minutes of previous meetings.
