We hold four-to-five parent evenings per year and require at least one parent attend each time. Two meetings concern the Montessori curriculum and are sponsored by the BBMH Directresses, one meeting is sponsored by the PAC, and two meetings are jointly sponsored and are concerned with school business, namely the AGM and Parent Orientation/Teacher Appreciation Evening. Attending these meetings keep you up to date with school developments, and provide a regular forum in which you can learn with your child. Attendance at parent education evenings counts towards your 60 hours of volunteer commitment (2 hours for each parent meeting attended). Relief of this obligation may be granted in the case of hardship at this discretion of the Board.
A lending library of various Montessori journals and publications is available for parents whose children attend the school. Video tapes and some audio cassettes are also available for loan.
