All parents and guardians of Athenian students are members of the Athenian Parent Association (APA), which works to support the school’s mission of intellectual exploration and meaningful contribution. The APA promotes a strong sense of community by facilitating communication between the parent body and the school. We host speakers, serve as a resource to parents, and encourage volunteerism. APA leaders and volunteers play a vital role in coordinating and running school events, which have historically included International Night, family potluck socials, faculty and staff appreciation luncheons, and celebrations of student milestones.
To stay informed about APA activities and to find out about opportunities to volunteer, read the Weekly every Friday, and come to our regularly scheduled all-parent meetings. All-parent meetings inform parents of volunteer, social, and community-building opportunities.
For example, Athenian's successful and active Book Club and Walking Group allow parents to build lasting connections and contribute to the greater Athenian community. Our goal is to have families find many ways to get involved, and we look forward to seeing your energy in our community!
Currently we are selling all SpiritWear online until further notice. We have expanded our shop to include a wide range of items that all can be delivered to your door. Please check back with us regularly for any spirit wear or Owl Outlet updates.
Co-Founder of Stop AAPI Hate and SF State Professor of Asian-American Studies Russell Jeung, PhD and Krysty Shen, Youth Campaign Manager of Stop AAPI Hate, will present to Athenian in our first Community Education Series about alarming reports of crimes committed against Asian Americans in 2020 and 2021, and address how we can all – students, parents, community members -- come together to bring justice to perpetrators and support AAPI communities.
