Volunteering

Montessori Family School is fortunate to have a dedicated community
Perhaps the best way to participate in your child’s experience at Montessori Family School is to volunteer. In this way, you’ll get to know other MFS families and students and increase your familiarity with the teachers and classroom, together enhancing the experience for the entire student body and overall community at MFS.

Parents play a vital role in the ongoing success of Montessori Family School. It has been shown time and again that parent involvement in their child’s school is a decisive factor in the success of the children and the school. Parent participation in the classroom, on field trips, at community events and in fundraising is essential to the school’s well-being.

Each family is required to contribute 20 hours of parent participation work per year, with 5 of those being on fundraising activities.
