How are parents involved in their child's education at Okemos Public Montessori?
Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in classroom activities, parties, and school events. Many Montessori parents volunteer on a regular basis in classrooms, and teachers often invite parents and members of the community as special guests to share their professional expertise or life experiences with students. All Okemos students receive graded report cards twice a year, and parents are invited to attend conferences in the fall and spring to review their child's progress. Okemos Public Montessori teachers have also hosted evening parent information meetings to help those parents interested in implementing Montessori concepts in their child's home environment.
