Join In to Make Plymouth Stronger

From setting up tables or flipping burgers for an event to co-clerking an all-school tradition, there are many chances to pitch in and help at Plymouth. We encourage parents to participate in school life by chaperoning field trips and classroom events, participating in the Parent Teacher Organization, and helping the Development and Admission Offices. There are many PMFS traditions and events each year that create and sustain the community.

Parent Teacher Organization 

One of the highlights of Plymouth Meeting Friends School is our warm and vibrant community. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) plays a vital role in nourishing the school, with friend- and fund-raising events, financial support for school efforts, and bringing forth important initiatives. Most recently, the PTO has structured a new group of parents and staff dedicated to improving community awareness and action towards Justice, Anti-Racism, Diversity, and Equity (JADE).
