Because a strongly engaged parent community is vital to Pacific Crest School and the mission of Montessori education, most school functions and events are organized and run by parent volunteers. Parent coordinators organize classroom-specific social events and facilitate some, but not all, classroom communications. Parent volunteers maintain the school's library, logo wear sales and gardens. This type of support for our community makes student enrichment and social events possible.
The events described below are ones that rely heavily on parent volunteers.
