Every parent in the Alcuin School community is a member of the Parents' Club. Time and again, parent involvement is lifted up as one of the unique aspects of the Alcuin School community. Parent commitment and participation are reflections of the love the parents have for this school. The generosity of the parent body benefits the students and staff throughout the year.

Alcuin School parents volunteer as room parents, organize fundraisers, coordinate parent education opportunities, and host social gatherings. Parents provide the energy behind the nuts-and-bolts tasks, such as distributing the school directory, organizing sports teams and sporting events, orchestrating the General Parents Meeting, and communicating through the weekly room parents email. Parents also plan events throughout the year to show appreciation for the faculty and staff.

Parents' Club Happenings

List of 4 items.

  • Parents' Club Meetings

    Usually meet the first Wednesday of the month at 8:30 a.m. in the Parents’ Club Room. Check the calendar each month to confirm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
  • General Parents' Meeting

    The General Parents' Meeting is held soon after school starts. It is the one time in the year that the entire community gathers. There is a general meeting with announcements and information about the coming year, followed by parent visits to the children’s classrooms. The Dads' Committee hosts a Parent Social following the classroom meetings.
  • Italian Night Dinner

    Parents and children are invited to the Gymnasium on the last Sunday in January to enjoy good food and friendship! Hosted by the Parents’ and Dads’ Clubs, it’s not unusual to see Italian chefs serving spaghetti and all the toppings for a fun-filled evening! Children will enjoy a variety of fun-filled activities while parents sit around and chat. This is a great way to start off your week while enjoying the company of good friends.
  • The Annual Auction

    This effort sponsored in the spring by the Parents' Club takes in all parts of our community—parents, students, and staff. Each year, the auction brings the community a wonderful evening, featuring an interesting theme and exciting activities. Monies raised at the auction have supported the staff retirement plan, built the pavilion, supported financial assistance, purchased Montessori materials, and contributed to Capital Campaigns. Always a big hit at the auction are the individual classroom projects built with student, teacher, and parent help. Past themes include “Journey to Oz,” “Havana Nights,” and “Fly Me to the Moon.”
