The main role of our PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is to build strong working relationships among parents and teachers in support of students. This includes recruiting and coordinating volunteers, organizing parent education events, planning teacher appreciation activities and much more.

Shaw Montessori is a wonderful community because of its extensive parental support and the volunteer contributions of people just like you! Please consider getting involved for the upcoming school year.
