Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Monarch Classical School of the Arts was founded on principles that regard parents and guardians as key stakeholder within school functions and processes. Parents are encouraged to participate in their child's education as often as they are able. To support the dynamics of parent teacher partnerships, Monarch commits to providing weekly progress updates to families through their preferred method of communication. Additionally, a council of parents will be organized to facilitate ongoing collaboration with families, school administrators, and staff in support of the children that we serve. All parents and guardians are welcome to participate in this effort and are encouraged to contact the school leader, Leigha Johnson, if they are interested in heading any aspect of the PTO startup. Active recruitment for PTO membership is going on right now! Please email MonarchClassicalSchool@gmail.com for more details.
Monarch’s Founding Families are key to the success of Monarch Classical School of the Arts. Founding Families take an active role in many aspects of the school. Founding Families are a core group of parent volunteers that work closely with our school leadership in enrollment, sponsorship, school and community events, and public outreach in preparation for the opening of the school. Children of founding families will not have to participate in the lottery. Furthermore, these students will have priority placement in school enrichment activities. There are two ways to establish Founding Family status.
1. Complete 40 hours of volunteer work.
2. Recruit 10 enrollments and complete 10 hours of volunteer work.
Open enrollment will end January 31st. Volunteer hours will be tracked and can be served in a variety of ways. Some of the activities include, but are not restricted to:
· Participation in PTO Group
· Community Outreach Events
· Connecting with Newly Enrolled MCSA Families
· Facilities Maintenance/Organization
· Preparing Materials for Board or Volunteer Meetings
· Assisting with Marketing and Recruitment Efforts
