The goals of the Parent Association are to help build community, increase communication and aid the school in fulfilling its mission. Meetings are held throughout the school year.
Parents are invited to help at school by being a recess volunteer, sharing artistic, legal, financial, public relations, marketing, governance, architectural or fundraising expertise, assistance with library circulation, recycling pick-ups, carpentry, refreshments for events, computer work…and many, many other activities. The Parent Association maintains a database of volunteer skills and resources to share with faculty and administration.
Your child’s teacher may have classroom activities with which you can help such as being a reading listener, typing stories, making presentations in your area of interest or expertise, or driving for field trips. Teachers may solicit parent volunteers during the basegroup meeting at the beginning of the year.
The Parent Resource Survey, obtained from the office, will provide more specific ways you can offer your assistance. It’s a good way to get to know other Kazoo School parents.
Kazoo School depends on the time and effort that its parents contribute in all of these areas to provide the learning experiences that are so important for its children.
Our faculty, staff, and administrators see parents as educational partners. Our hope is that parents will actively participate in the activities of the Parent Association.
Parents are always welcome in the building. This is a school community where parents and teachers work in partnership on behalf of children.
