School on the Green Board of Directors

Since 1972, School on the Green has been managed by a Board of Directors, which is comprised of parents of enrolled students as well as a percentage of non-parents. The board works together to ensure that the school remains compliant with state regulations and school policies, as well as performs functions that significantly enhance the services provided to students and parents.

Each April, the Governance committee will nominate candidates for the upcoming Board of Directors. Parents and other members of the community are encouraged to join the board for the upcoming school year. The final vote takes place at the annual Board of Directors meeting in May. It is not a requirement, nor is it necessary, to have held a previous board seat in order to be considered for any position on the board.  The monthly responsibilities for each position are clearly defined in a written manual, and retired board members are available for questions.  Anyone interested in becoming a board member should contact the school.

Executive Board

Amy Laskowitz, Treasurer: Amy is a mother of three children. She has two boys, Lucas and Marcus, and a girl, Maya.  This is her second year on SOTG‘s board. She serves on the Governance Committee and is the school’s Treasurer.  Why did you choose SOTG? “I chose the school for it’s warm family atmosphere, nurturing staff, and community focus.  This is a school where children and their caregivers can participate in the educational process, connect with other families and celebrate life through the eyes of a child. ”

Board Members

Amanda Golovin:  Amanda has been with SOTG for 5 years; this is her 4th year on the Board of Directors.  Her two older two boys, Elian and Lorenzo, are SOTG graduates.  Her son Marco is attending this year, and baby Felix will attend in the future.   She serves on the the Events Committee and the Governance Committee.  Why did you chose SOTG? “There are so many things that I love about SOTG.  The mixed age classroom really appealed to us, as did the warm and loving environment.  From the very beginning, we knew that SOTG was the perfect place for our children to learn to love school.”

Ann DeHippolytis:  Ann is a 1st year SOTG parent and a mother of two boys. Her oldest son Isaac is loving the two day program before he heads off to Kindergarten next year.  Alexander will be a future SOTG student.  Ann serves on the fundraising committee.  Why did you choose SOTG?  My husband and I chose SOTG for many reasons.  We loved the play-based atmosphere that allows a child to explore and create.  The teachers are so warm, welcoming, and thoughtful.  They truly understand the needs of each individual child.  I love that I can be involved as much or as little as I want by volunteering in the classroom, chaperoning on field trips, being a mystery reader, or even serving on the board.”
Tara Doherty: Tara is in her 2nd year as a SOTG parent and board member. Her daughter, CharleeMae is enrolled currently and she has all intentions of enrolling her son, Johny, when he is ready! Tara holds her Masters Degree in Early Childhood and Special Education and is currently our Education Manager and also sits as the chair of our School Readiness Committee. Why did you choose SOTG: “Being an educator myself, it was important to our family that we be as involved as we could in our children’s education – and a parent cooperative is just what we needed to start this journey. Well, that and the fact that I’m a 1988 SOTG Alumni!”
