Our Community

Parents

Combined with an excellent curriculum, outstanding teachers, and a supportive peer group, parents contribute extensively to the educational and social opportunities that Open Window School students enjoy.  There are so many opportunities for parents to make new friends and play an important role in our community, whether they have time during the school day or not. Volunteering at Open Window can take many forms, and they are all coordinated by our Parent Association.

In addition to volunteering, parents have frequent communication with their child's teachers as well as scheduled fall and spring parent teacher conferences. The school's weekly newsletter, "The Bobcat Weekly," is emailed to families every Thursday and provides a comprehensive one-stop view of important school information. A password-protected portion of our website, known as "My Open Window," offers additional information regarding each student's classes and activities as well as a convenient way for parents to access school information.

The Open Window School Parent Association supports and enhances the mission of the school. The PA works to create a vibrant parent community and promote a healthy learning environment through the sponsorship of community social events, parent education programs, coordination of volunteer support, and community service.

Current parents are automatically members of the Parent Association. The PA recognizes that the Open Window community is enriched by the variety of talents, resources and experiences that each parent brings to the school. We sponsor an array of mission-related programs and events throughout the school year for education, community service, and fundraising. We encourage parents to get involved with these events, which directly enhance your child’s educational experience at Open Window. 

The Parent Association meets monthly on Friday mornings, and meetings are videorecorded for families that cannot attend.
