The active participation of parents creates a unique community that benefits families,
children and teachers.
Our flexible co-op model incorporates the talents of our parents. We do recognize, however, that the demands of working parents can make frequent or regular commitment a challenge, so we have a range of flexible participation opportunities available.
Please reach out to the director with questions and ideas for making the requirements work for your family.
