The Parents’ Association sponsors and organizes events that contribute to Manhattan Country Schools’ warm and inviting community for both parents and students. The Parents' Association is active through meetings, hosting large annual events, planning Parent Led Forums, volunteering with the admissions office, and much more.
All parents are automatically members of the Parents’ Association, and in that spirit, have many opportunities to work together to enrich our community. Volunteer opportunities are organized by class and provide the framework upon which families work together, share experiences and provide support to one another. You can also volunteer in a number of ways outside of your class job. Examples of class jobs include: organizing Farm Festival, hosting the end of the year faculty party and providing support and snacks for the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. March.
The Parents' Association also coordinates Parent Led Forums, bringing in experts in an array of topics pertinent to current parents. Recent topics have included: sustainability, raising technology aware children and safe-use of the Internet.
