Building community and providing structure for families to get more involved at SFS.

FA Leadership 2019-2020

Welcome to the Family Association!  

The moment you become a parent/guardian at The San Francisco School, you become a part of the Family Association!

The Family Association (FA) strengthens and builds the SFS community by engaging families around volunteerism, social and educational events, and fundraising. The FA understands that families have busy schedules; to that end, the FA seeks to provide activities to fit various interests, skills, and schedules.


The Family Association (FA) is comprised of a parent/guardian volunteer leadership team that meets at least once a month. The leadership team helps to keep the FA’s systems and processes running smoothly, sets the annual goals for the FA, and oversees the management and communication of FA-led events and initiatives. 

If you are interested in a leadership role within the FA please contact FA Chair Tracy Kaplan at
