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
"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."
"Yesterday my second grader added 61 plus 61 in her head and she's zipping through the Harry Potter series. So while the school doesn’t measure her progress with test scores, I can see how much she has learned, but more importantly, I can see and feel her excitement about learning."
"As the mom of identical (yet nothing alike) twins, we wanted a school community that would nurture their individual curiosities and interests and provide them the same lifelong love of learning that I have experienced as a Montessori student many years ago. We found that in The Portland Montessori School."
"The school community at The Portland Montessori School creates a truly inspiring environment that is nurturing and encourages independence and a desire to learn. We see the results of this in our daughter every day."
"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."
