Parents of Independent Schools Network (PIN)
From the PIN website:
The Parents’ Independent School Network, Inc. (PIN) is a volunteer group of parents with children who are students at New England area independent elementary and secondary schools. PIN was formed to help parents share ideas and promote worthy programs at these independent schools.
One or two parent representatives from each member school attend four to six meetings each year. These PIN reps serve as the conduit between the diverse school communities. At PIN meetings, reps gather to share information about topics relating to non-academic issues, listening to speakers and panels and participating in discussion groups.
The primary goals of PIN are:
- Improve the quality of non-academic life at our member schools through the exchange of information among parent representatives
- Actively encourage representatives to work closely with their schools’ parent organizations
To achieve our goals, we at PIN :
- Present and discuss topics of mutual concern
- Share ideas and practices which have benefited member schools and their students
- Sponsor educational events and provide useful information for our community
- Support and foster PIN member schools’ community service programs
- Encourage each representative to work closely with his or her school and the school’s parent organization to disseminate ideas and information learned from the PIN meetings
- Share information through the PIN Community Bulletin Board about upcoming PIN member school events
