Current Working Committees:
- Parent Reps – Classroom Representatives, selected by the teacher of each respective class, will be the liaisons between the Parent Council, the class teacher, and the parents within that class. Reps will bring pertinent Parent Council information back to the teacher and parents, as well as relay any classroom needs, concerns, and volunteer opportunities/needs to the Parent Council. There can be up to two parent reps per classroom, and there is no limit to how long a parent can serve as parent rep for the classroom. This is decided by the teacher and parent rep. Chair of Classroom reps: Annielaurie Mozee: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Communications – Facilitate and assist with communication within our community to ensure that all families receive pertinent information and that volunteer opportunities are shared so needs are fulfilled. A Volunteer Liaison will be elected from within the committee so that the Classroom Reps, Committee Chairs, etc. have a single person that is responsible for relaying volunteer needs to the community at large. The Committee’s functions may include but are not limited to supplying articles for the school newsletter, provide support to the school Volunteer Coordinator and Program Coordinator, and maintaining and updating the Parent Council page of the MSCS website. Chair: Denise Mills: email@example.com
