Parent partnership and involvement are key components to the Montessori philosophy. The MCHS school community offers many ways in which parents can support their child’s growth in the classroom.
Volunteer opportunities include acting as Room Parent, sewing projects, designing and directing a class art activity, sharing a talent or knowledge with the children through a classroom presentation, working in the courtyards, reading with the older students, going shopping for the weekly school supplies, checking out books from the public library for classroom use, serving as a Parents Club Officer, and more.
The purpose of the MCHS Parents Club is to support the school and the members of its community through organizing social events, providing opportunities for parent involvement, and fundraising. From all-school outdoor festivals to intimate get-together for coffee just by class, Parents Club social activities allow parents to connect and to form friendships that strengthen the community and enhance the parental experience. Parents Club sponsored fund-raising efforts have led to many school enhancements, such as new playground forts, irrigation and plants for the butterfly garden, and dwellings for our goats and chickens.
The Dads Club specializes in social events for MCHS dads and their children. Events may include trips to sporting events, bowling, fishing, and the annual Dads Club Campout in the wooded area on the western side of our campus.
