The education of the whole child is a cooperative effort between parents, teachers and students. Faculty, staff, members of the Board, and families work in partnership together to strengthen the school and its community.

We encourage you to actively participate in the classrooms, in schoolwide activities, and in the governance structure of the school. Volunteer opportunities for parents and staff include the following.

PTM (Parents and Teachers of Montessori)
Opportunities include:

  • - Volunteering to be a member of the PTM Executive Committee, made up of four parent members and a faculty liaison.
  • - Becoming a PTM Room Representative. At least one parent from each class volunteers each year to keep parents informed about school and class activities and events.
  • - Assisting with PTM events such as the fall and spring carnivals, Camp Montessori and Skate Nights.
Learn more about the PTM.
