Parent Responsibilities and Volunteering


    “Structure is an absolutely important part of the creative life, and Emily (Yo Yo Ma's daughter)

    got this from her Montessori experience.” ~ Yo Yo Ma, Cellist


    Treasure Village Montessori Parent Responsibilities

    Excellence in education requires an extraordinary commitment on the part of the family, school and community.

    TVM Committees of the Board of Directors

    There are five committees of the Board of Directors designed to oversee Treasure Village Montessori Charter School's policies and procedures. Committees have been created to enhance the development and forward steps of the school. It is valuable for these committees to have volunteers from the parent body. Parents make up the vital core of our committees and fundamental the success of each. We encourage and invite members of the parent body to become involved by volunteering on committees. Please visit the Board of Directors page to learn about committees and how you may participate.
