Parent Group

The Milwood parent group meets in conjunction with the School Leadership group once a month. The first part of the meeting is a joint meeting with the Leadership team, and the second part of the meeting is for the Parent Advisory Group. The meetings begin at 5:30pm, a short break is taken at 6:30pm and then the meeting resumes.

By meeting with the Leadership Team, parents can discover a wealth of information about our school and the Leadership Team can get input from the parents. During the Parent Advisory portion of the meeting, parents can ask questions, join together to benefit our school by planning events, and find others ways to help our school.

The parent group has been recognized as the PTO, Parent Advisory Team, and Parent Booster group in other schools. We'd like to extend a cordial invitation to all parents who'd like to help us with various school projects and learn more about the school curriculum and operations.
