Parent Circle

Parent Circle

The role of the Parent Circle is to encourage parent and community involvement in the school via such activities as: building community partnerships, fundraising, promoting parent volunteerism, and parent education.

It is the mission of the Parent Council to unify the collective efforts of the teachers, parents and administration for the betterment and health of the school.


The Parent Council is dedicated to cultivating an active and diverse community that nourishes the vision of the Monterey Bay Charter School. The Parent Council champions volunteerism that comes from the head, heart and hands of its community members, and in turn promotes student achievement.

The Parent Council strives to:

  • Advocate for students’ health, safety and academic success;
  • Inspire and support individuals to share their unique and valuable gifts through volunteerism;
  • Contribute to the fiscal stability of school programs and initiatives

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
