co-op responsibilities

Committee Participation

At least one parent from each family is required to serve on one of our committees, which currently include: Community Engagement, Silent Auction, Building and Grounds, and Teacher Support.  Share your talents and get to know other parents while keeping our school running smoothly.

Work Parties: 2 Saturday morning work parties per year

One parent from each family is required to participate in two Saturday morning work parties during the school year.  Three hours of working side by side with other families on deep cleaning in the classrooms keeps our school clean and in tiptop shape. 

First Fridays: 1 per year per family

On the first Friday of each month, CCCC provides a pizza dinner after school and invites children to play on the playground while their parents are working in the gardens.  Attendance by each family at one First Friday maintains the condition of our beautiful, natural playspace.

Field Trips and Other Parent Participation

In addition to the above requirements, each family contributes a minimum of six co-op credits per school year to provide chaperones for field trips, to assist with classroom activities and to accomplish miscellaneous tasks that arise throughout the year.
