Message from the Country School PTO

Hello, Country School Families!

We hope you are enjoying these last days of summer and are excited about the 2022-2023 school year. Jess and I are this year’s Country School PTO Co-Chairs, and we will be keeping you updated on school happenings throughout the year. We will send an email every Sunday evening that will outline all the pertinent information for the upcoming week. We are here to answer your questions or concerns, so please reach out!

Mrs. Maguire and the entire Country School faculty and staff are hard at work preparing to welcome new and returning families to our school community. Classroom assignments were emailed out yesterday, and they are also available in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Teachers will reach out with specific classroom information.

Below are the latest back-to-school announcements. For more school updates, please subscribe to the Country School calendar and sign up or renew your  PTO membership to access the online and paper directories, Westword Newsletter, and more. And don’t forget to follow CS on Instagram for general updates and photos!

If you are interested in volunteering as a Room Parent, please let us know via email or the PTO membership website. Once in your Membership Toolkit account, click  “Sign up to Volunteer” and select Country School. There you will find a list of volunteer opportunities.

Room Parents will be creating and distributing class lists over the next few weeks. To help streamline this process, please fill out the appropriate form below (one for each child).

Enjoy the last few weeks of your summer vacation! We look forward to seeing all of you soon!

All the best,

Jessie & Jess
