Parent-Teacher Unity (PTU)
Montessori of Ladera Ranch PTU was founded by two of our own Montessori of Ladera Ranch parents, Through volunteering in the classrooms, both expressed a keen interest in increasing volunteer participation amongst the parents of our school. The intention and goals of this unity, is to provide positive support to the staff, which in turn, will benefit our children and school.
Montessori of Ladera Ranch PTU is organized similar to the Parent/Teacher Association (PTA) which is found in public schools nation wide. Montessori of Ladera Ranch PTU is an independent group designed for our own Montessori of Ladera Ranch parents and is not part of the public school PTA. Therefore, our group is not bound to the national guide lines set forth in the public school PTA’s.
Montessori of Ladera Ranch PTU meetings will be held once a month and any parent is welcome to join the meetings. Each classroom will be sponsored by one Montessori of Ladera Ranch PTU representative and one assistant who will be designated at the first meeting.
