Parents Association

Every parent or guardian of an ARS student is automatically a member of our Parents Association. At ARS the PA is a flexible organization that reflects the interests and priorities of its current parents, which means that events and activities might evolve throughout the years according to parent preferences. While some traditions like our Halloween Party, Book Fair and Spring Fling are held dear, we are also open to fresh ideas.

The main goal of the Parents Association is to foster strong ties within the parent community and monthly meetings are held in school, in Central Park or via Zoom. As a member of NYC Parents in Action we also offer Parent Talks, small group meetings that exclusively focus on child development and related issues. While in office, the PA President sits on the ARS Board of Trustees.

We believe that strong connections strengthen parents, families and our school, and we extend a warm welcome to those who join our community!


Please contact the Parent Association president Jenna Gettinger at if you would like to become more involved. We are looking for help with a cookbook project, various school year events, as well as our Spring Fling party and auction!
