Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is a Co-Op? +

A co-op (cooperative) is a non-profit parent participation school where member families help to run and maintain the school. Members also help to finance the school through donations and fundraising.

How much fundraising do I need to do? +

Each member family is required to raise approximately $420 minimum per child that is enrolled in the school. The school provides guided fundraising opportunities that can help the member families reach this goal throughout the school year.

Why does the school require carpooling? +

PBNS is located on a land preserve with a private road with limited vehicle capacity. Carpooling is a must per our land agreement as it reduces the number of vehicles to those allowed on the road as well as help to preserve the wildlife and the beauty of the land.
