Dear PSCCC families,

I hope your first few weeks have gone well for you and your little ones! Welcome back to returning families, and welcome to new families whose children are just joining the collective. I would like to acknowledge Acting Executive Director/Educational Director Martha, our Office Manager Lauren, and our incredible teachers for doing such a wonderful job leading the Collective through its most recent transition.

I’m writing you with updates about the PSCCC board, some upcoming events, and committees.


The PSCCC board is comprised of our acting Director/Education Director Martha, nine parent volunteers, and one teacher representative. Your parent board members are myself as Chair (Ailey, Bears), AJ as Treasurer (Rohan, Rainbows), Jess Parsons as Secretary (Billy, Rainbows), Billie Christie (Joie, Rainbows), Meredith Kolodner (Katya, Little Stars), Penny Lewis (Eleanor, Bears), Aaron Zimmerman (Calvin, Bear), Tanya Weismann (Elias, Bears), Margaret Schwartz (Tillie, Rainbow).


All PSCCC members are invited to attend board meetings, and our first one will be on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1 at 6:30pm at the school. Unfortunately, we don’t provide childcare for the board meetings yet, though if there’s a lot of demand we will see about getting some.

On OCTOBER 23 Martha and teachers are planning a Curriculum night at the school, where the PSCCC’s pedagogy and curricula will be discussed in greater depth than we normally get to do. You’ll be receiving an email on specifics.


We’ve got lots of committees for you to consider joining, and a few we really need some help with. All work you do for committees counts towards your collective credits. I’ve listed them in order of current need:

FACILITIES: We are looking for parents to assist in improving the school’s facilities and to do minor odd jobs—side yard, gym, etc. Please contact me if you’re interested

FINANCE: We are looking for a couple of people who could join our finance committee. You will help plan our budget and review our financial systems. Please contact AJ (Rohan, Rainbows) interested.

FUNDRAISING: We’re planning another Winter Benefit Gala – just as spectacular as last year! Event planning, creative fundraising ideas, energy – bring what you can to this great committee. Contact Billie Christie (Joie, Rainbows), Tangie (Ailey, Bears)

DIVERSITY: This committee is working to support and build diversity within the school. It is already working on outreach and other activities for the fall—Meki Adefris

Again, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions. Looking forward to seeing you at school, or at an upcoming meeting or other gathering.

Wishing you all the best,

Damond, for the board
