Welcome!

As we navigate these unprecedented times and adapt to this new “normal” of Montessori during a pandemic, we are looking for ways for our parent and caregiver community to stay connected and support each other. Please contact us at thacherparentnetwork@thacherschool.org.

Welcome new families – below are examples of some previous, parent-organized events and initiatives.
