Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement

Cooperative efforts include co-oping, committee opportunities, fundraising, three clean-up parties, and parent meetings. Each family chooses a committee or position on our Parent Executive Board to work on in order to keep the school running smoothly.

The Parent Executive Board consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Fundraising Chair, Assistant Treasurer, Enrollment Chair and Co-op Schedulers. These positions are held by current parents with at least one year’s experience at Family Cooperative Preschool.

Other committees include the following:

  • Fundraising

  • Hospitality

  • Indoor Maintenance

  • Outdoor Maintenance

  • Photography

  • Publicity

  • Supplies

  • Website Maintenance

Parents are invited to attend bimonthly meetings to discuss the business of the school and develop open discussions on child development issues. Professionals are frequently invited to attend meetings as guest lecturers. These lectures and related resource materials provide perspective in child rearing.

Families make connections and build community through experiences within committees and at different events as each year progresses .
