As the parent or guardian of a Nichols student, you are a valued member of the Nichols School Parents’ Association. Your voice is important, and as a leadership team, we are both honored and grateful to be representing you for the upcoming school year.
The Parents’ Association is led by our Parents’ Council, made up of elected representatives including our Executive Leadership Team, two to three Grade Representatives per class year, and a team of At-Large Members.
Get involved! Whether you are a new or existing parent, our advice for the best experience possible is to get involved in whatever ways are most meaningful to you. Volunteering for a planned grade rep event, attending a parent coffee, listening in on a Zoom call, participating in Community Service Days, or donating a much-needed item for your class, are all ways to get to know one another, make new friendships and help to support the mission of the school. For more information about volunteering, please contact Stephanie Angelakos, Liaison to the Parents’ Association at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to any member of our Executive Leadership Team!
The primary source of written communication for parents is through the Resources section of MySchoolApp. Important health forms and all archived notices are also located in this section. If you have any challenges with your login, email email@example.com. Be sure that your email is up to date with the school so you are in receipt of important correspondences throughout the year. Other forms of communication include:
Weekly newsletter for families and students (Friday afternoons from August-June)
This Parents’ Association webpage on the Nichols website
Emails from your Grade Rep and Leadership Team
Important, time-sensitive messages from the school via email
Social media updates on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
Thank you and we look forward to working together. We will make this a great year!

Our Parents’ Council Mission is “To help parents navigate and engage in the Nichols journey through communication, education and community building. We achieve this by providing opportunities for as many parents as possible to participate in different ways (forums, enrichment programs, education programs, coffees, service events, Zoom calls), supporting an inclusive culture, helping the transition from Middle to Upper School, strengthening communication, and team building; all using technology to help where possible.”
In support of our Mission, the foundational themes of the coming year are Leadership, Enrichment, Partnership, and Communication, with each area being supported and integrated into the broad parent community through the guidance of the Parents’ Council.
