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 2016-May 2017). Interested in participating, please email Andrea for available Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) positions at email@example.com
"The Portland Montessori School is a school with a heart. Each year, parents raise money to sustain scholarships that make the dream of a Montessori education a reality for families who could not otherwise afford it. That shows the true spirit of community at our school."
"At The Portland Montessori School, our kids learn to use buttons, tie their shoes, juice an orange, crack nuts and cut bananas, clean up after themselves, identify odd and even numbers, sew, set their place at the table, pour their own milk, understand the value of numbers into the thousands, and identify continents and countries on a map—and have fun doing it all!"
"We always knew that our daughter’s curiosity and tenacity led her to love exploration and learning, but since she’s been with The Portland Montessori School we've seen her develop personally in ways we hadn't imagined. She is all the better for the love, respect, friendship and encouragement she receives there."
"Our son's vocabulary, spelling, reading and social skills have grown by leaps and bounds under the Montessori method."
"When our son started kindergarten at The Portland Montessori School, his behavior problems stopped almost immediately. That’s because he had interesting, engaging work to do. He’s so proud to show us the work he’s done when we pick him up after school."
