The George Watts Montessori Parent Teacher Association is a volunteer, non-profit organization of parents, teachers and friends of the school who are working to create an enriching learning environment where all children can thrive.
Our mission is to be a powerful voice for the students, a useful resource for families and the community, and to advocate for the education and overall well-being of every child.
WHO WE ARE
We are united in our belief that all children deserve an education that prepares them for success, nurtures their unique talents and imparts a love of others and community engagement. We are working together to bring that belief to life at George Watts.
