Friends Of Museum School Mission

Our mission is to support the education of children at the Museum School in order to provide enrichment programs and other benefits for students. We come together as parents and caregivers to create events and opportunities that support the school financially and foster relationships between parents, teachers, students and the outside community.

We understand that different families can contribute in different ways, so we offer a variety of opportunities to contribute. We strive for 100% participation from our school families and have a huge range of opportunities, from giving a monthly financial pledge to helping organize teacher appreciation week, from getting donations for our annual gala to contributing your personal expertise. There is something for everyone.
