There are many opportunities for parents, student and the community to get involved with school life. We regularly receive notifications to participate in community events such as painting for Halloween, events leading up to Christmas, various parenting classes, and participation in festivals for the community. On other occasions, you will find students trying to raise money for worthy causes such as feeding the homeless and learning civic responsibility, whether that is voting for older kids, or helping others. These life lessons are important for children's early development. It is easier for children to learn in this environment because of the small class size and more accessibility to the teachers. Unlike various other Montessori models of schooling, this environment is open, inclusive, and parents have numerous opportunities to participate in various events.
