Mission

PPDI celebrates and recognizes the cultural diversity of Viewpoint School.Sponsored by the Viewpoint School Service Association (VSSA), our parent-led committee hosts parent activities designed to enhance cultural awareness and to promote compassion throughout our community. PPDI connects and supports parents from all affinity groups to strengthen our shared experiences so we can deepen our understanding of one another. We believe that this process helps weave together the fabrics of diverse communities into a stronger whole.

Our Future Leaders

Viewpoint Student Voices

Viewpoint's Speech and Debate Team is headed to the Nationals!

PPDI invites our parent community to an evening that honors our Viewpoint students. Join our celebrated Speech and Debate Team as they share some of their award-winning talks. The Viewpoint Speech Team has garnered national success with five students qualified to compete at the prestigious National Individual Events Tournament of Champions in May. Also hear from Viewpoint student leaders about their experiences at the Student Diversity Leadership Conference. This multiracial, multicultural gathering of upper school student leaders, from across the U.S. and abroad, focuses on self-reflecting, forming allies, and building community. Participating students develop cross-cultural communication skills, design effective strategies for social justice practice through dialogue and the arts, and learn the foundations of allyship and networking principles. Don't miss this opportunity to support what our students have accomplished!

We feel the need to rise to the occasion and respond. PPDI is here to support you and provide a safe space to connect with our Viewpoint community. In support of our parent-focused goals for the organization, we are introducing three new initiatives:

Viewpoint supports affinity groups where parents with common interests, background, and experience can come together to support each other.
