Co-op Responsibilities

In addition to being active participants in our children’s early school experiences, the parent members of RPCNS are responsible for the operation of the school and the maintenance of the physical space. In the spirit of cooperation, there are four requirements we have for every family:

Assist in your child’s class - Depending upon the age of your child, the co-op burden is 2-5 times per month for each child enrolled. On a rotating basis, the parents are also responsible for bringing a healthy snack for the class.

Hold a job in the school - Each family is given a job at the school with the parents’ talents, strengths and personal preferences taken into account. The level of involvement required is widely varied with different jobs.  Examples of jobs are Librarian, Kitchen Helper, Class Parent, and Board positions like Co-Chair, Secretary or Treasurer. 

Participate in scheduled work days - Every family is required to work one set up day, one maintenance day and one pack up day each year. Each work day typically lasts 2.5 hours.

Participate in fundraising activities - Our Fundraising Coordinators provide a variety of activities and small events for out members which raise money for the school. These range from restaurant nights, to school photos, to Kids Kreations.  Our goal is to have every member family participate in at least one event or activity.  


Being able to co-op means I am able to learn from some amazing and caring teachers.  I have especially appreciated learning different ways to talk to my own kids so that they will listen.  These are skills I use everyday!
