Home   Board of Directors & Policy Council


Family Star Montessori is fortunate to have attracted some high profile board members who are passionate about Montessori early childhood education.  I thank each board member for their time commitment, their financial giving, and their innovative thinking that has helped put Family Star on a path for future growth and success.  Board members spend a tremendous amount of time in board meetings, committees, a strategic planning retreat, working together with staff and parents, and made very measurable process this past year in strengthening our leadership and financial stability to ensure a strong, quality program for the next 25 years.  As we look to the coming year, I can assure you that we all have the same passion and commitment that we have had for the past 25 years.  We are not only reaching for the stars, we are achieving them.”
