Why Join Parent Circle?
Parent Circle is all about making new friends, connecting, sharing, and communing. If you want to take part in building an enlivened parent community, support and model a culture of service and care for the children, participate in creatively developing resources to make the school a better place, or gain diverse perspectives on school issues and community, then this is for you. If you simply want to connect and share ideas, then Parent Circle is for you, too! All parents are welcome, always.
What's in a Name?
Parent Circle, while a gathering of supportive and dedicated parents and caregivers, is not an independently funded organization and therefor not a PTA or PTO. Parent Circle works in collaboration with, and in support of, teachers and the administration. At Mountain Sage, we define a parent as someone who is a primary caregiver and/or guardian of a child, whether through biological and/or legal relation.
