On behalf of the Pennington Montessori Parent’s Association, it is with great pleasure I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! I would like to extend a warm greeting to all of our returning families and welcome all of the new families to the Pennington Montessori Parent’s Association. We have many exiting things planned for this year and expect it to be a fun, rewarding and enriching year ahead.
Fun Fact: All parents of children that attend Pennington Montessori are automatically members of the Parent’s Association.
What does the Pennington Montessori Parent’s Association do? The Parent’s Association coordinates school social events for Pennington Montessori families to enjoy, such as, the Welcome Picnic, Halloween Parade and Global Festival. The Parent’s Association is also responsible for the fundraising efforts that benefit the school and our children. Our annual Spring Auction is one of these fun events! In addition to the social and fundraising activities, most importantly, the Parent’s Association gives back to the community. The Thanksgiving Food Drive and Holiday Gift Drive provides families and children in need with a piece of comfort and joy during the holidays.
Thank you to all of the parents who have already graciously volunteered to donate their time and services. It is with great hope and expectation that each Pennington Montessori parent will decide to play an active role in the upcoming P.A. events. Without your help, these activities would not be possible. The act of volunteering is crucial to our Association and not only allows us to play a direct role in the benefit of our school, but also sets a good example for our children by encouraging a strong sense of community. We want this to be a fun experience and is a great opportunity to meet new people! Any amount of time that you can help will be greatly appreciated and cherished. Please reach out to find out which volunteer opportunity would be a good fit for you, as well as with any questions that you may have about the roles and responsibilities of each committee volunteer position.
I look forward to meeting each of you and wish for a very happy and successful school year.
