PARENT INVOLVEMENT

While Dragonfly is a parent cooperative, we understand that parents are busy people! We strive to keep our expectations around parent involvement reasonable and flexible for our busy families.

Parent Meetings

To foster a sense of community and involvement, Dragonfly holds short monthly parent/guardian meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at 5:45pm. 


Parent Involvement Program

Dragonfly’s Parent Involvement Program (PIP) gives our families the opportunity to lend a hand, share about something that is important to them, and get a chance to know more about what we do every day.  For example; cleaning up at the end of the day, reading to students during story time, teach an activity to the children during program hours.

Parent Board

While Dragonfly’s day-to-day operations are handled by staff, we also have a 5-person Board of Directors made up of parents of currently enrolled students.  The Board of Directors supports the Executive Director in the running and oversight of the program.  Among other things, they finalize and vote on the budget, set tuition and approve changes to policies.  


Family Potlucks

In December and June of each school year Dragonfly hosts Potluck dinners. This gives the children a chance to show off their work and celebrate their accomplishments!
