Parent Responsibilities

CCNS has a steady tradition of  parental involvement that strengthens our school community. In addition to monthly tuition, CCNS families are asked to contribute their time. Each enrolled family must also perform the following duties:

  • Co-op: Parents assist the teacher during class time approximately two times every four weeks in the older classes and one time every three weeks in the younger classes. Parents with more than one child at our school is still required to co-op fully for each child.
  • Committee Membership: Parents must participate on at least one operating committee during the year. Parents with more than one child attending CCNS will only participate on one committee.
  • Clean Up: Parents must participate on one of the 4 scheduled clean ups for the year. These are all on Saturdays and go from 9-1. You will sign up for one at the General Meeting. Parents with more than one child only need to sign up for one clean up.
  • Meetings: Parents must attend the school’s general meetings (August and February) and Parent Teacher Conferences (November and March). Children (except infants) do not attend these meetings.

Committee Options

The committees to serve on are:

  • Board of Directors: Help develop, implement, and maintain policies and procedures for CCNS. Board positions are volunteer, and members will work closely with the director, teachers, and committee chair people to support the day-to-day operations of the school. The board meets once per month in the evening, and members may be required to serve on sub-committees for special initiatives as the need arises.
  • Co-op Calendar Scheduler: Coordinate the co-op schedule for your child’s class.
  • Newsletter: Write informative, entertaining articles and submit photos for the online CCNS newsletter and blog. This committee requires a chairperson to assign and edit the articles, and publish the newsletter using the existing Google blog and Mailchimp platforms.
  • Social: Plan and implement school-wide social events, typically about 3 per year. This committee requires a chairperson.
  • Fall Harvest: Plan and implement a fundraising dinner in the fall. The committee is divided into groups, including dinner, décor, and fundraising. Each member will contribute at least 3 items to the auction and must participate in event set-up and clean-up. The event requires a chairperson.

The committee is divided into groups including activities, logistics, and fundraising. Each member will contribute at least 3 items to the auction and must participate in event set-up and clean-up. The event requires a chairperson.
  • Fundraising: Procure a total of at least $300 worth of auction items that will be included in one of our fundraiser events (Fall Harvest or Spring Picnic).
