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.

Durham Academy Parents Association collects Box Tops for Education, and the fall collection deadline is Oct. 25 — so start clipping and dropping them off!
Box Tops are found on many products that are likely already in your home, such as Kleenex, Annie's brand foods, and Hefty products. (See a complete listing here.)
DA Parents Association has set up collection sites in the Preschool/Lower School (there is a bucket inside the lobby on top of the glass cases), in the Middle School (there is a box on the counter in the front office), and in the Upper School (there is a folder on the Parents Association bulletin board in the Learning Commons).
While we collect Box Tops year round, there are two deadlines a year to mail them in, so get yours in soon so that they can count toward the Oct. 25 submission.
Please address questions about the program to Kelly Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
