Fostering Community

The mission of Hewitt's Parents' Association (PA) is to foster a spirit of community and serve as a resource for all Hewitt families. In addition to providing support to new and current families, the PA plans school-wide events for students and parents such as community service activities, merchandise sales, and the annual book fair. A communication conduit between families, administrators, and faculty, the Hewitt Parents' Association plays a critical role in our home-school partnership.



The Parents’ Association remains committed to building community and connections for all Hewitt families, especially during this unusual school year. We are hard at work reimagining many of our community’s favorite PA events and activities, including the book club, annual book fair and merchandise sale, family service events, and Community Inclusivity Dialogue series and shifting them into virtual programs. Gathering online will enable us to continue to bring our community together, even when health and safety guidelines prevent us from gathering together in person!
