The NDV Parents’ Association (NDVPA) works closely with the faculty, staff and administration to foster a strong and welcoming school community, and to raise funds to enrich our programs. The NDVPA supports a wide variety of field trips, cultural and sports activities for students as well as educational programs for parents.
The Parents’ Association is comprised of all current parents, who actively and enthusiastically volunteer their time. A sampling of the many activities the PA organizes throughout the year include:

Each September, the Family Picnic brings the NDV community outdoors to eat and play together. This is a Sunday afternoon event in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Families gather to relax and enjoy a meal and refreshments prepared by the parents. Best of all, the students engage in traditional games including tug-of-war, potato sack races and the egg toss game. There is normally a craft table and a dessert contest as well. This is one of the few off-campus and outdoor events for all. It takes advantage of NDV being close to one of SF’s historic city parks.
NDV’s Halloween Carnival embodies the best of this national holiday. It gives our families an opportunity to be creative in various ways, whether it be through costumes, decorating pumpkins, baking treats or volunteering to decorate the school. It includes a dinner outdoors, a themed-haunted house experience produced by the 8th grade families, a circuit of seasonal games run by parents, a craft table and more. Although not required, students and most of the parents come in lively costumes. It is a Saturday evening event.
The NDV Fall Book Fair celebrates our community’s love for reading. The auditorium is transformed into a popup bookstore. For a week, this fair features an array of products and books to inspire NDV families and staff. In recent years, it has become a collaboration with local bookstores. It has included author events, contests and various group activities. Additionally, parents can purchase and donate books and materials to classrooms and the school library.
