Parent Participation


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.

Parent Participation Requirements

  • Each family participates in two work days per year
    (one August-December; one January-May).
    A buyout is available for one of those days for $150

  • You’ll be able to pick your dates in advance,
    at the start of the school year

School support hours
