What role do parents have?

A trusting and communicative partnership between teacher and parent is essential. Parental observations and insights are an invaluable source of information. We expect that, throughout the course of a child’s years at Lighthouse, both teachers and parents will approach this challenging and rewarding partnership wholeheartedly; with honesty, patience, receptivity and humor.

As part of the Lighthouse School commitment, parents are expected to actively participate in Parent Discussion and Administrative Meetings as well as Parent/Teacher Conferences and school events. Parents are asked to contribute their time and talent toward fundraising efforts and events throughout the year. In the interest of keeping tuition as affordable as possible, the school relies upon fundraising to meet the annual operating budget.
