The Beethoven School offers many opportunities for parents to get involved. With a very active Parent Council and Site Council, there are numerous events, fundraisers, and activities to volunteer for – or, if you have a suggestion or idea for improving the school, we welcome your input and involvement.
Every Beethoven parent is, by definition, a member of the Parent Council. The Parent Council meets the second Tuesday of every month in the Beethoven auditorium and addresses parental concerns, ideas for school activities, and fundraising. Annual events include an International Night Potluck, Family Movie Night, Arts & Crafts Day, and Field Day, among others.
The Site Council is a committee of parents, teachers, and the principal that serves as the decision-making body for the school. The Site Council makes decisions on policies (such as uniforms and school-based rules) and appoints a personnel subcommittee to assist in hiring decisions. Site Council members are elected by the Parent Council.
Other ways to get involved
One way for you to help is to donate your time. We frequently need chaperones and other volunteers for field trips, events, fundraisers and classroom help.
Additionally, we always appreciate your monetary support and participate in a few “reward” programs to generate revenue for the School.
Check in your cabinets, freezer and fridge for products with the Box Tops for Education label. For every Box Top you clip, the Beethoven will receive 10 cents. Each school can receive up to $20,000 per school year from clipped Box Tops.
