A big part of Tauxemont's 80-year history is parent involvement. As a cooperative, opportunities to participate in classrooms and in support of the school are built into our program.
Parents or other family members help in their child's classroom on a rotating basis. Training and support are provided.
Work sessions are scheduled monthly during the school year. During these sessions, the school's physical plant is maintained. Typically a family works at two sessions a year.
During the course of the year, the school offers several fun and creative opportunities o enhance the school's funds. Our Silent Auction is our major fundraising event. Every family has opportunities to make these events a success.
Every family has an opportunity to have a School Job.. These jobs are as a member of a committee that supports the school. There are fundraising committees, committees that enhance and support the physical plant and classrooms and committees that build community.
Families whose schedules, situations or desires do not include actively being involved in the school can opt out* of many of the opportunities, but they are available to all families.
*There are fees for opting out of fully participating
