Parent Council

The Parent Council meets every other month and provides parents with the opportunity to receive information on upcoming events, support one another with issues related to parenting, provide the school with feedback on its practices, and support the school through events planning.

Please check the calendar for the next meeting date.

The parent council has an email list open to all parents.  To be added to the list, contact Mr. Brill.  Parents also serve on the schools governing board. If you are interested, please contact Head of School Geoffrey Walker or Associate Head of School Kevin Brill.
