Cooperative Involvement

We encourage families to be involved in every aspect of their child’s educational experience and, as a cooperative, we rely on family involvement.  

During a typical school year, families have the opportunity to work in the classroom as assistants to the teachers and assistant teachers.  They help supervise children under the direction of classroom teachers, help set up activities, perform cleaning tasks for the classroom, and may even be asked to lead a small group activity, depending on their experience and comfort level.

Of course, there are also many other ways that families can volunteer for our school with opportunities outside of the cooperative tasks including serving as a classroom representative, large clean-up days, help at events and fundraisers like Fall Festival and Auction, library and office help.

For the safety of our children and school, we require that each individual who plans to work in the classroom or school has first completed a background check.
