PEP: Parent Enrichment Program

South Orange Country Day School is proud to work with the community of families to enhance the experience of all students at our school. Parent Enrichment Program (PEP) was developed by engaged families that wanted to create a network of families to have fun, as well as support families raising young children. We all worry about potty training, setting boundaries, bed time rituals, etc. Sharing ideas with other families can be reassuring and helpful.

PEP Pizza Cupcake Spirit Day

SOCDS celebrates birthdays as a monthly group the last school day of the month.  We all eat a pizza lunch and have one small cupcake (we accommodate all allergies.)  PEP will collect the fee to participate.  Here are the calendar dates for 2019. PEP Pizza 2019  (Please note that the previous calendar had the first Pizza Day for Monday September 30th, we have moved that to Friday, September 27th so that it does not conflict with families celebrating Rosh Hashanah.)  Sorry for the confusion.

Simply Gourmet — Lunch and Snack Delivery Ordering Information

PEP has organized to have lunch and snack delivery using Simply Gourmet.  You will need to create an account on their website:   You will then be able to order lunches and snacks to be delivered directly to South Orange Country Day School.
