Monroe Montessori School is fortunate to have such enthusiastic families dedicated to the education of the young children attending our school.
Perhaps the best way to participate in your child’s experience at Monroe Montessori is to volunteer. In this way, you’ll get to know other families and students and increase your familiarity with the teachers and classroom. You can make a real difference. Working together with the teachers towards the common goal of a great educational experience, enhances the life of each child and helps the school remain strong and vibrant.
Parents play a vital role in the ongoing success of Monroe Montessori. Parent involvement in a child’s education from a young age can make a significant difference in the child's academic success. Children may not always listen to what we as parents say but they ALWAYS listen to what we do. Your involvement conveys to your child a strong sense of the value of education. It is this value combined with the value of perseverance that can make a significant difference going forward. For example when a child is thinking "This is too hard" or "I don't think I'll ever get it", the adult's encouraging support at that moment is what allows the child to sense there is a way forward.
Parent participation in the classroom, on field trips, at school events and in our annual fundraisers is essential to the school’s well-being. Each family is required to contribute 15 hours of parent participation per year. A Volunteer Log is located on the Parent Bulletin near the door of your child's classroom to help you keep track of your time.
