Parent Support Group

What is the Parent Support Group (PSG)?

The PSG gives families an opportunity to participate in their child’s school community through volunteer work. At Heartwood we organize our volunteer opportunities through various committees such as the Buildings and Grounds Committee or the Social Committee. Other committees are formed to tackle events like our annual Spring Fling.

During PSG meetings we discuss current issues and throw out ideas for future events and even new committee ideas. We would love to see every parent participate in these discussions. We want your input!

 

When does the PSG meet?

Our first meeting of the 2017/2018 school was held on Thursday, Sept. 21st. During the meeting we discussed last year’s committees and gauged interest for this year’s activities and school needs. We loved your input and suggestions. If you missed our first meeting, please join us next time!

Please email samantha@heartwoodmontessori.com with any questions that you may have.

PSG Committees for the 2017/2018 School Year

Yearbook: Ginny McCollum

For the past 3 years, Ginny McCollum has worked with our community of parents, teachers and students to create one of a kind yearbooks. Each yearbook includes photos from our annual events as well as interviews or bio’s for each student. These yearbooks are wonderful keepsakes that bring a lot of smiles to Heartwood families.

The Yearbook Committee needs volunteers beginning in January. Parents are needed to help interview our younger students as well as edit their responses so that they will fit in the yearbook.

Grounds Committee: Aliya Gard

Aliya Gard is returning for her second year as the chair of our Grounds Committee. The goal of the Grounds Committee is to provide opportunities for parents to work on improvement projects around the school both as a group and individually. In the past we have spruced up our gardens, painted the classrooms and have brought new life to our playgrounds.

The Grounds Committee is in need of volunteers throughout the school year. Whether you want plant a flower, touch up some paint or tackle a bigger project, we would love your help and your ideas!

Social Committee: 

The goal of our Social Committee is to give Heartwood Families an opportunity to spend time together outside of the school environment. Building relationships with other Heartwood parents is a great way to strengthen the Heartwood community and ultimately enhance our children’s educational experience.

In the past we have had coffee meet ups for parents, group lunches with the whole family as well as pumpkin painting and scavenger hunts. If you are interested in helping to plan an event or have an idea for the committee, please let us know. We would love to hear from you!

Fundraising Committee:

Spirit Wear

This year Spirit Wear orders will go out in the fall and the spring. In the fall we will offer t- shirts and zip up hoodies in several different colors with the school’s logo on both. In the spring we will offer Heartwood baseball hats and white t-shirts. The white shirts look great tie-dyed and can be used in place of a plain white shirt during the end of the year tie-dying activity.

Scholastic Books: Audrey Dixon

The amazing Audrey Dixon organizes our Scholastic Books fundraiser. Scholastic gives our school store credit for each purchase made by our parents that we pass along to our teachers so that they may update their classroom libraries. You can order books online at anytime.

Original Works

http://www.originalworks.com

Original Works catalogs will come home in October. They will be sent home in a green plastic envelope along with the art work that your child has made. The art work in that envelope is what will be printed on any of the items you order.  Renee Corcoran organizes this fundraiser every year with our art teacher Ms.Courtney and they do a fabulous job. The Original Works order usually raises around a thousand dollars for the school. This year that money will be used to support the building of the new shelter thatis being constructed behind the school.
