The Surrey Montessori Society Annual General Meeting is held every October. SMS members vote for the new executive and approve the annual budget for the upcoming school year. All parents, caregivers and educators from Latimer Road, Mountainview and Sunnyside programs are welcome to attend as well. Membership brochures, call-for-nomination forms and meeting information are distributed in September.
The Surrey Montessori Society hosts ongoing speaker series throughout the year, which are free for members ($5.00 per family for non-members). These events are wonderful opportunities to meet other parents and learn more about the Montessori philosophy.
Parents are encouraged to attend their school's monthly PAC meetings where SMS reports and updates are presented. This is where specific questions about your particular program can be answered by the Principal, PAC and/or SMS liaisons.
Each school also has its own Montessori Resource Committee (MRC), which provides teachers assistance with sourcing Montessori curriculum resources, maintaining inventory lists and material making.
