Community: Getting Involved

The community at MdTL is often regarded as one of the deciding factors for families considering joining our school. This community spirit is evident throughout all our activities!

There are many ways to get involved - some parents look at the opportunities presented inside the classroom. However, many parents move beyond the classroom and find opportunities to use their skills and interests among many parent-led committees and projects that support the school. Below is just a brief overview and we welcome you to ask questions and reach out to any Committee Chair, Room Parent or our Director of Communications.
