Cowles Montessori Parent Group
Be informed – Be involved
CMPG is a non profit parent organization that supports Cowles Montessori by raising funds, planning events, and providing volunteers. Every parent of a Cowles Montessori student is already a member. No dues are required, and it’s a great way to learn about issues important for high quality Montessori education in the Des Moines Public Schools.
CMPG meetings give parents a chance to hear what’s going on at Cowles and a forum to have their ideas heard. At CMPG meetings we will typically discuss fund-raising and purchases for classrooms and the school, community-building and social events, special school activities (such as Peace Day and Field Day), curriculum, and facilities. It is a great way for you to be more involved and really make a difference in your child’s education.
CMPG meetings will be held on the first Monday of each month (the second Monday in September). We begin at 6:00pm and try to finish by 7:00pm – but certain agendas may take a bit more time. Free childcare is provided.
