Who are the Parent Volunteers ?

Parent Volunteers promote activities to raise funds for the immediate improvement of the classrooms and campuses and to provide educational and friend-making programs for the families at School of the Woods.

Every parent is invited to participate and is encouraged to attend meetings.

All school activities are funded with donations from parents and admission fees for selected events.

All School Events promote the following goals:

  1. Social Interaction
    • September Welcome Breakfast
    • Back-to-School Social for Adults
    • Chili Cookoff
    • Spring Splash
    • May End of Year Breakfast

  2. Immediate Improvements to the School
    • Donations to classrooms to support seasonal activities &/or end of year celebrations.
    • Donations from Annual Fundraisers. These funds are used to purchase classroom materials.

  3. Facilitate Communication
    • Parent Volunteer Meetings, with varied presentations
    • Contributions to the monthly newsletter
    • Assistance to families with personal emergencies through the Care Committee
    • Publicity for events with posters, flyers, and email announcements

  4. Educational Programs
    • In conjunction with the teaching staff, hosts programs on Montessori Education such as, the Montessori Journey and others

Classroom Volunteers

  • Classroom volunteers are directed by teachers in various activities, such as gardening, being parent listeners, cooking in class for cultural events, pet-sitting for holidays.
  • Please contact your teacher for classroom volunteer opportunities.

Parent Volunteer Activities are the result of the participation of many parents at the school. Some of our parents are able to commit substantial time as coordinators, committee chairs and committee members for activities, while others volunteer for particular events or classroom activities, as their time and interests permit. Still others offer goods and services or support our efforts with admission fees and events. Over 90 percent of our parents actively participate in volunteer activities at the school. We are indebted to volunteers for their continuing support and involvement.
