Parent Advisory Committee
The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) at The Portland Montessori School includes parents of students in our school, teachers and other staff representatives. The PAC’s role is to assist the school in fulfilling its vision and mission. It does this by:
- Supporting and supplementing the operation of the school through fundraising
- Promoting and coordinating our parent volunteer program
- Planning social events and outreach activities
- Recommending initiatives to the Board of Directors
- Assisting with our Annual School Auction
- Organizing and promoting school events
PAC meetings are held monthly (see calendar for dates) at 6:30pm during the school year (September -May). Interested in participating, please email Andrea for available Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) positions at firstname.lastname@example.org
"My wife and I can’t thank the school enough for helping not only our son, but also us as we try to provide a consistent learning environment in our home."
"What takes me aback every day is the exceptional commitment of every single staff member to the nurturing environment that this school provides. The care, understanding, and compassion that they show is and unwavering and is unique to each and every child."
"I have taught in public schools for the past ten years, including six years in kindergarten, and I can attest that Montessori is different, special, and provides an optimum setting for children's growth and development."
"As parents, our ultimate goal is for our child to make independent, healthy and confident choices so he can be a happy and productive person wherever he is in life. We are thankful he is with Miss Jennifer's elementary class and The Portland Montessori School community, where he is developing those traits."
"We've been a part of this amazing community for seven years. Not only are our children getting a fabulous education, but they receive personal care and attention every single day."
