Building Community

Our mission is to build community among AGS parents and families, to build positive relationships between parents and the school, and to support AGS via events, fundraisers, and partnership activities.

Getting involved with the Parents’ Circle is a terrific way to get to know the AGS community—from other parents, to your daughter’s friends, to the incredible faculty and staff that assures every day is great for your daughter. We hope you actively join us!

Parent Organizations

eye of the storm logo bluegold 4Supporting the Arts at AGS, Eye of the Storm is dedicated to supporting the visual and performing arts at AGS by raising awareness of and supporting the development of both the academic and extracurricular arts program at AGS.

hurricane-watch-logoSupporting Athletics at AGS, Hurricane Watch supports AGS athletics by encouraging attendance at sporting events, selling concessions, building spirit within the AGS community, and supplementing existing funding for equipment and programs.

The Men of AGS is the premier auxiliary men’s group that provides enthusiastic service to the entire AGS community. If you are an AGS dad, granddad, uncle, father figure associated with AGS, or even a male faculty member, you are automatically a member of MoAGS. The MoAGS work closely with the Parents’ Circle, Hurricane Watch, Eye of the Storm, student committees, and AGS administration, faculty, and staff to share, to serve, and to stay connected and involved with the AGS community. Major events include the Chili Cook-Off (fall) and Bonfire. Whether it is building, cooking, setting up, breaking down, or just providing the needed muscle, we are there. There is a place for men at an all girls’ school and we look forward to you joining us and participating in the events.

The Spirit Store provides spirit wear to AGS fans. It is managed and staffed by volunteer parents. The Spirit Store is open thirty minutes before school on selected days. The Spirit Store only accepts cash, check, and credit.

Parent Supported Events

The Parents’ Circle partners with the AGS Advancement Office to host the annual auction each spring. Over $200,000 was raised in 2016 for the betterment of AGS. Many parents are needed to help with this event!

Twice a year, used uniform sales are held with the uniforms that are donated back to the school. Donate outgrown uniforms and volunteer to work at the sale.

Teachers, Advisors, and Grade Level Deans welcome parents into AGS to experience their daughters’ learning environment and to learn what to expect during the next school year – from academics and extra-curricular to developmental needs. 

The Thursday night of Homecoming week is marked by the Bonfire on the back field. Also on the same night is the famous Men of AGS Chili Cook-Off. It is a great event that fills the gym with fun! The best way to support this event is your attendance. Parents’ Circle also provides s’mores, and hot chocolate. Come set up or help clean up; we’ll take all the help we can get.

Ongoing Volunteer Needs

AGS Parents’ Circle provides a pizza lunch option on Mondays only. This is a fundraiser that benefits all AGS programs! The pizzas (including gluten-free options) are provided by DaVinci’s Pizza. If you have any questions, please contact PC Lunch Coordinator, parent Sue Roberts.

We are always seeking parent volunteers to help set up and serve pizza and snacks during lunch. This is a quick, but important, volunteer opportunity and a great chance to spend time with AGS girls!

Be part of the team that promotes spirit wear at AGS. The team decides what mornings the store is open at the beginning of the year. Get in early so your voice counts.

The parent/student and faculty/staff hospitality co-chairs need a long list of cooks to call on for soups, salads, desserts and various other items they dream up to serve at AGS. Add your name to the list so you can drop off your delectable donation for special events. We can divide this into food and dessert categories.

If you want to really push your sleeves up and help put on events, let us know. We need parents to follow the current hospitality chairs. Any creative, willing hands are appreciated!

Are you too busy to cook? Parents’ Circle gives faculty/staff gift cards as gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week. We need fifty $25 gift cards the first week in May. Sign up and we will send you a reminder to drop your card off at the front desk. We will add it to the grab bag and a lucky teacher will feel special during Teacher Appreciation Week.
