Learn More About Our School
Come to our next information meeting! This is a great meeting where you'll really get to know our school and the heart of our administrators. We recommend it for interested families.
Parent's Required Meetings and On-Campus Duties
We depend on our parents each campus day! Parents serving at the school not only helps the school run more efficiently, but it also helps keep our tuition costs low. We are proud to offer some of the lowest tuition costs in the Knoxville area!
Once a month, one parent will volunteer their time at school. Parents help in the office, at PE, or in the nursery, depending on the needs of the school. This is a great opportunity for our parents to get to know the school, adminstrators, teachers, and other parents! Our families love rotation, but if 5 hours, once a month is not possible, families can opt out for $500 per year. In turn, we will pay another parent to work in your place.
River's Edge has nearly 30 committees on which our parents serve. Most commonly, committees help plan, organize, and facilitate events. Other committees have varying responsibilities, such as yearbook (planning, creating, and publishing), photography, hands and feet (set up or break down of events), admissions interviews, and admissions tour guides! Committees range in involvement and time committment, but each year, parents have a first-come, first-served opportunity to sign up for their favorite or most fitting committee. Parents who cannot commit to committee duty may opt out for $350 per year.
In addition to rotation and committee duties, we have a couple of meetings each year that we ask parents to attend. These meetings are sure to keep the RECA family up-to-date and on the same page. Each year, families will attend:
Parent In-Service, Each August - Beginning of year update and expectations
RECA Community Update, Each January - Recap and next year's plans and updates
