Parents As Partners

Milestones Day School is committed to parent involvement and collaboration. We believe that students thrive when the school and family are able to work together as a team. Our partnership with parents/guardians occurs in several ways:

Parent Advisory Group

MDS holds quarterly PAG meetings that are open to all interested parents/guardians and are co-led by members of Milestones’ leadership team and parent volunteers. The goal of the committee is to discuss topics related to the education, health, and safety of the students and for parents to voice their ideas and concerns. In addition, the PAG plays a vital role in supporting our community’s enrichment. Members may take on specific roles such as helping to identify appropriate speakers and training topics for families, planning for outside of school activities, and fundraising. All meetings include time for parents’ discussion as well as a free parent training. We encourage all parents or guardians of our students to attend. Below are the upcoming dates, times, and topics for 2019-2020.
