Parents play a vital role at Hilltop Montessori School. Involvement is welcome and necessary for Hilltop to succeed on every level: educationally, financially, and most importantly, as a model community for our children.
Parents are asked to participate in community activities, start of school clean up and in fundraising events throughout the year.
Whether it’s grilling hot dogs at the Annual Fund Kick-Off Carnival, baking cookies for our holiday cookie swap, soliciting items for our spring auction or selling raffle tickets, successful fundraising at Hilltop simply could not happen without parent energy and time. Our goal for all fundraising activity is always three-fold: foster community; raise funds; and most importantly, have fun!
Parents may also be invited to serve as a Classroom Coordinator helping teachers with various tasks like organizing chaperones for trips or coordinating classroom celebrations. They act as a liaison between teachers, staff, and parents in non-academic matters.
In order to keep our lovely campus in tip-top shape, we rely on parents to help out with chores like: spreading woodchips on the playground, weeding flower beds and sprucing up classrooms at the start of the school year. We also invite parents, grandparents, or special friends to share their talents in the classrooms in order to enrich student’s studies.
There are other occasions like class trips and winter sports where parent involvement is essential. Each year, parents are recruited to accompany students skating, cross country skiing, or downhill skiing/snowboarding for six consecutive Thursdays starting in January.
