The Sherwood Montessori Parent Organization or "SMPO" provides parents with an avenue to effective participation in the school's operations.
All parents at Sherwood are de facto members of the SMPO. Active membership is encouraged and achieved by attending regularly scheduled SMPO meetings or through regular volunteerism. By attending SMPO meetings or reading the meeting minutes, parents can learn more about how to get involved in the school and earn volunteer hours.
Each family is encouraged to perform a minimum of 50 hours of involvement for the school each academic year. Part of these hours may be filled by attending school performances, attending Back to School Night and participating in other school functions.
At the beginning of the school year, parents will be asked to fill out a "Parent Involvement Questionnaire" to help identify areas of interest and expertise that may benefit the school. The Sherwood Montessori Parent Organization (SMPO) will help connect parents with volunteer opportunities and track volunteering hours.
