Parent Association

Maple Street has always been devoted to harnessing the energy in the collective commitment to strong partnerships between parents, teachers, staff and students. To enrich the environment and program, we depend on parents’ willingness to participate in school-wide fundraising ventures, your unbounded enthusiasm, and some parent volunteer work.

We recognize that parents are engaged at different levels of commitment to their jobs, community organizations, and to the life of the family itself, and that not every parent will be able to help us in every way. However, we do ask the following of every parent:

  • Come to special events that involve your children.
  • Make parent conferences a priority in your schedule.
  • Communicate your thoughts, ideas and concerns to your child’s teacher as soon as they arise.
  • Participate with other parents in fundraising events to support the scholarship fund.
  • Contribute according to your means to the Annual Fund.

The head of school meets monthly with the Grade Parents (a “parent captain” of each grade) to discuss school wide issues and plan events. These meetings are open to all and serve as an important feedback loop.
