Parent Leadership

Parent Leadership at Green Meadow Waldorf School consists of both the Parent Council delegates and the Class Parent representatives.  The Class Parents help to support the Class Teacher and the Parent Council works school-wide; both groups build community throughout our school.  Parent Leadership at Green Meadow Waldorf School provides a forum for parents to engage in open and honest communication between the school administration and the parent community, as well as encouraging and helping coordinate parent volunteer efforts throughout the year.

Parent Council Steering Committee
and Parent Council Delegates

The Parent Council consists of a parent delegate from every class.  Each Parent Council Delegate serves as a conduit between the parents in his/her class and the school faculty, staff, and administration.  S/he facilitates communication between these partners, providing leadership that assures that the conversation is based on respect and honesty.  The overarching role of the Delegate is thus to create an environment in which all stakeholders in the school feel safe in speaking openly to each other, and experience a willingness and positivity in each other as all contribute to the Green Meadow Community.  To learn more about the Parent Council and its activities, please contact us at parentcouncil@gmws.org or contact a member of the Parent Council Steering Committee:
