Parent Role

2021/22 Parent Role

We have transitioned to a Parent Involvent Preschool(PIP). A PIP is where parents are involved in the school in some way. At our school a parent from each family is required to hold a job on the School Job list or be on the Executive to fulfill this Parent Involvement designation.

Jobs on the job list vary from, recycling, laundry, weeding, compost removal etc. Executive Positions are listed in the Bylaws.

As a Non-Profit, Families are members. A Parent is required to attend General Meetings to also fulfill the Non-Profit requirements.

Parent Education opportunities are provided in General Meetings, thru our Monthly Newsletter, our school library and thru our teacher resources.

How is it decided what my job will be?

Registration forms ask what your talents, interests and job preferences are. We try our best to assign you a job you request or one that appeals to your talents and interests. At one of the first general meetings, the job list will be reviewed and volunteers recruited. When you assume a job, you will receive a job description to help you perform your job.

How much fundraising is required?

Our preschool is a non-profit organization. All money raised goes to the operation of the program (rent, phone, teacher salary, supplies etc.). Parents participate in a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year to support the operation of the school. Invite and tell your family, friends and neighbours, about our fundraising efforts. Every little bit counts.

FUNDRAISING

Our school depends on the funds raised by us, the parents, to operate. Please remember that you don’t need to participate in every fundraiser, but we do need your help. Share our fundraisers with friends, family and neighbours, as they are often more than willing to participate.

We are always looking for new fundraising ideas, so don’t be shy about speaking up.
