The Montessori Parent Advisory Committee (MPAC) is made up of parent/guardians, teachers, and administrators who support Montessori education in many ways.
We meet monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. The meetings cover a variety of issues of interest to parents of students in the program such as:
We provide an open forum for Davis parents dedicated to providing Montessori classrooms embedded within Davis’ traditional public schools.
Participating in MPAC meetings and activities gives parents/guardians a way to participate more in their child’s education, and at the same time to be more connected to the school. We strive to build a strong partnership between our families and our Montessori program, and to make a positive impact on the students and families served.
MPAC has successfully raised funds to help offset the costs for teachers to attend out-of-state conferences, and for classroom materials. We also organize several social “community-building” events every year.
