The purpose of the Marin Montessori School Parents' Association is to foster and celebrate a strong sense of community among parents outside of the classroom environment by offering a wide variety of ways for Members to participate in school life in a meaningful way and offer their time and talents to the MMS Community.
PA events are held throughout the school year and give parents an informal opportunity to come together in the MMS spirit and learn more about how to be involved on campus. One of the most important functions of the PA is to collaborate with the MMS Board of Trustees, Faculty, Administration, and parent volunteers to plan and staff school events and projects.
In addition to community activities, the PA supports the school's fundraising efforts by hosting events such as the Book Browse, promoting participation in eScrip and Amazon shopping programs and coordinating the ongoing sale of MMS Spirit Wear. The PA is also very proud to coordinate service projects around Marin County throughout the year to meet the needs of our community and our planet.
There is always a wide range of opportunities for parents to participate in PA activities. Please contact any of the PA Officers directly for more information.
How the PA is Organized
The activities of the PA fall under the umbrella of MMS governance and leadership. The everyday management is facilitated by the PA President and the PA Executive Committee. PA events are planned and executed by members of the PA Leadership Team and supported through the efforts of parent volunteers.
