Parents Association & Parents Council
The Durham Academy Parents Association supports the school's academic, social, fine arts and athletic objectives. Parents Association encourages volunteerism, raises and disperses funds, promotes communication and cooperation, and provides input to the school on issues of concern and interest to parents. All Durham Academy parents are members of the Parents Association.
The Durham Academy Parents Council is the governing board of the Parents Association. This group comprises members of an executive committee; division representatives; members of schoolwide committees on matters such as diversity, wellness and athletics; and parents who organize both community-building and fundraising events. See a list of the parents who serve on Parents Council.

The Used Book Sale collection efforts are off to a terrific start, with thousands of books donated already. Many of these books are particularly appropriate for Preschool readers, so the Used Book Sale committee will once again host a Preschool Mini Used Book Sale on Friday, Nov. 30.
The Preschool sale will take place in the Preschool Great Room on Dec. 1 from 7:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. More than 1,000 gently used picture books, board books and learn-to-read books in paperback and hardback will be available. All will be priced from $1 to $2.
Along with the sale, the Preschool parent representatives will host a coffee. Preschoolers will all visit the sale throughout the morning to purchase books, and Preschool parents are invited to have coffee, socialize and purchase books, too!
Preschool parents should have received an email with a link to set a limit on their children's spending. If you have not already done so, you can find the link on your Veracross home page under "Household."
Durham Academy faculty members are invited to select books free of charge.
