Parent Council

Parent_Council_SquareDance_LR1 Parent-Council2

The Parent Council, an elected group of at least seven parents (including one president or two co-presidents) and a designated representative from the College of Teachers, serves as a liaison among the parents, the College of Teachers, the Administration, and the Board of Trustees. Our mission is to promote a strong, integrated, diverse community of parents, faculty, staff, and students to serve our school, which will benefit the education of our children and the larger community. One of the council’s main tasks is to facilitate communication on and discussion of issues relevant to the day-to-day life of the community, including the education and social life of our children within the school community. The group encourages awareness and involvement on the part of every member of the community in the mission and workings of the school.

The Parent Council has several subcommittees that encourage the involvement of the community in a number of activities. These committees include Dad’s Committee (Apple Picking, Sailing) and Events Committee (Back To School Nights, Community Association Dinner, Spring Picnic, and more). The roles of these subcommittees reflect the Council’s role as informational resource, support system, and unifier. The entire school community is invited to participate in these committees and other activities sponsored by the Parent Council.
