Annual Events

Parents, educators, and administrators work together for the benefit of the Shady Lane community. Many annual events, including the A is for Art fundraiser and the Book Fair, are led by parents in collaboration with educators and administrators.

All parents and staff are encouraged to volunteer and participate in Shady Lane events. Sign up for participation is sought in the fall, but parents may volunteer at any time. In addition, many opportunities to participate in the community, including discussion groups and other gatherings occur throughout the year.

Board of Directors

Shady Lane is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. We have found that a diverse Board is crucial to the strength of the organization, and that such diversity is strengthened by the participation of current and past Shady Lane parents as well as other members of the community. Parents interested in serving on Shady Lane's Board of Directors can ask for more information from Becky Flaherty, Executive Director.
