Parent Involvement

Montessori Center Room depends heavily on parent participation.  Parents can be involved in a variety of ways.  All parents are required to attend two All School Membership Meetings, Parent Education nights and conferences.  In addition, there are four parent committees:

-The Classroom Committee supports activities occurring in the classroom. Members of the committee will volunteer in the school, coordinate and shop for  daily snacks, collect and prepare materials, among other activities.

-The Events & Communication Committee manages the events calendar and school communications.  Members of the committee schedule and run school events and write the newsletter, among other activities.

– The Fundraising Committee determines annual fundraising goals and plans and runs fundraising events.  Fundraising dollars go towards tuition assistance for families who have demonstrated a financial need and also towards capital improvements.

-The Environments Committee is dedicated to making our physical environment beautiful as well as doing more to enhance the school’s curb appeal.

Prior to each school year, parents sign a Participation Contract indicating the committee they will join and the specific ways in which they will be involved during the upcoming year.  Parents are encouraged to share any special skills or interests that may benefit the children and the program.
