The Thacher Family Network welcomes all parent volunteers and invites you to share your enthusiasm, talent, and ideas with our community. Email us at ThacherFamilyNetwork@thacherschool.org
As we navigate these unprecedented times and adapt to this new “normal” of Montessori during a pandemic, we look for ways for our parent and caregiver community to stay connected and support each other. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome new families – below are examples of some previous, parent-organized events and initiatives.
Class parents regularly keep in touch with their respective guides, offering support as needed. They facilitate communication within their class community. They meet with other class parents to share ideas, report on how their class community is doing, and support parent-initiatives.
