In partnership with the school, the Parent Association organizes community-building events, provides a forum for parent-to-parent communication and socialization, and implements activities to enhance the student and community experience at Sunny Hollow Montessori. In addition, the Parent Association organizes the Parent Liaison program described below and helps raise money to support the programs at Sunny Hollow.
The Parent Association engages parents and families with monthly parent coffees, a back-to-school family picnic, bike-to-school days, the Fall Festival, the Spaghetti Dinner and Dance, and an MLK Day Service Project.
To create community amongst our families, the Parent Association also organizes classroom gatherings and all-school meet-ups where families get together at sites around the Twin Cities. With the help of the Parent Association and our many active parents, the Sunny Hollow community is strong and vibrant.
Fostering a sense of community among Sunny Hollow families and staff, Classroom Liaisons provide support and assistance for guides and new Sunny Hollow families. Each classroom has one or two volunteer parents to assist with activities such as welcoming new parents, organizing family events outside school hours and supporting guides’ classroom needs or requests. Some of the events organized by Parent Liaisons include ice skating outings, trips to the park, potlucks, and family bowling nights.
