Committee Job

Everything at our school is done by our member families from laundry, to event planning, to curriculum, to administrative duties and much more. We assign these as "committee jobs" and every family is required to work one (1) committee job per child attending the school.  Families with two (2) children enrolled in 1-Day will hold only one committee job. 


All families must attend a few mandatory meetings each year.  The meetings requirements are as follows.

  • Orientation Workshop: These class-specific workshops are held in late summer before school begins and will be your intro to working in the classroom.

  • All School Meetings: These meetings for the entire school are generally held at the beginning of the school year and in April to conduct school business.

  • Parent Education Meetings: These fun and informative meetings are held as follows:

    • 1 Day Class: One Wednesday evening per month in October and January

    • 2-Day, 3-Day, 4-Day: One Tuesday per month in September, October, January, March, and May

Volunteer Shifts

Every family must work one (1) 3-hour volunteer shift, typically during the weekend.  Volunteer shifts typically occur in Fall and Spring. An online sign-up is done at the beginning of the school year so that you can choose your shift.  Read more about our fun family-oriented fundraising events.

Facility Maintenance Workdays

During the year, our school needs maintenance. Since we are a co-op, our member families do the school maintenance. This means that you will be required to work a 4-hour maintenance shift in which you will help clean, beautify, and improve our school. Requirements are as follows:

  • 1 Day: One (1) 4-Hour Saturday workday per year, per family.

  • 2-Day, 3-Day, 4-Day: Two (2) 4-Hour Saturday workdays per year, per family.
