Parents' Community

The Parents’ Community is an integral part of learning about and supporting our children and each other.  And the best part is…YOU! 

Throughout the year, the Parents’ Community provides opportunities for parents to come together to get to know one another through socials, lunch and learns, meetings and activities. We also plan and organize more than 30 events throughout the school year, from the auction to teacher appreciation lunches to bake sales, award nights and more. Profits from events like the annual auction, book fairs and bake sales go back to support SDS – our students, our teachers and programs. Your student’s experience is enhanced by funds contributed from the Parents’ Community. And we could not do it without you!

Community Socials

We understand the importance of community – feeling supported, heard, encouraged and known. The Parents' community is intentional about providing space and opportunity for interactions with other parents through a variety of social events throughout the year. Join us for coffee one morning, for an evening gathering at a local restaurant, at BINGO or a talent show. We can't wait to see you!

Celebration & Auction

A Parents’ Community tradition and the most fun even of the year!  Each Spring, parents, faculty, alumni and guests are invited to enjoy fantastic food, music and spirits while browsing exciting items up for auction.  

The event takes on a different theme each year, and parent volunteers transform a space into a relaxed and casual atmosphere where people can wear whatever they want and just enjoy a night of fun and fundraising to support Spartanburg Day School

Book Fair

Our Parents' Community loves to support our local community! Our annual book fair is held at the Hub City Book Store in downtown Spartanburg each November. It's a wonderful opportunity to stock up on great book titles while also supporting SDS.

What’s in a name? A great deal, according to leaders of the Parents’ Community at Spartanburg Day School. Learn more about the group's shift from "club" to inclusive and welcoming "community." Read the article.

Parent involvement has always been important at Spartanburg Day School. When the school was established in 1957, the "Mother's Club" made sandwiches and soup for students daily.
