Board of Directors
When you enroll at MCP, you become a member of the Not-for-Profit Corporation that governs the school. This group is led by a board is comprised of parents serving staggered 1 year terms. The board oversees all operations of the school, including committees, fundraising, and day to day operations and personnel. The board works closely with the staff, ensuring a positive preschool experience. Parents may opt to serve on the board of directors instead of serving on a committee.
Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend our monthly board meetings and let your voice be heard! They are held the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 at the preschool. Dates for the meetings will be in our monthly newsletter, the calendar, and on this website.
Parents of MCP students have the option of assisting in the classroom on a rotating schedule, All parents take turns providing snacks (from our peanut free snack list) for the children. If you opt to help in the classroom please arrive at the school 5-10 minutes before class begins to help with set-up/preparation for the day’s activities. Parents assist with projects and the children throughout the day and provide the snack for the class. At the conclusion of class the parent assists with clean-up. Parent aiding is not required but encouraged.
Parents have the option of four committees.
- Ways and Means is our largest committee. As a not for profit organization, fundraising helps the preschool meet operating expenses and provides additional income for capital improvements to the school. This committee is dynamic; members plan our annual auction, as well as several other smaller fundraisers. A great choice for first time parents, get to know other families at monthly meetings, and have a night out without children!
- Special Events: This group plans social nights at local businesses each month, giving our families opportunity to meet other parents and enjoy an evening out. They also organize our end of the year family picnic.
- Communications: Coordinating community events such as the MHS Homecoming parade is just one facet of this committee. These members distribute information about the preschool to the community at large. Our monthly newsletter and brochure/publicity development appeals to the most creative members of this group.
- Repair/Housekeeping and Cleanup: Calling all handy parents, this committee is for you. In addition to helping with laundry, repairs and other tasks, this group supervises deep cleaning of the preschool several times a year.
