Board Directory

All current parents are members of the Miquon Corporation and therefore, are invited and encouraged to attend monthly board meetings. These meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in Lynn and Mark’s classroom. Often there are opportunities for parents to get involved with board committee work as well. If you have questions about the board or would like to get in touch with a board member, please contact Director of Development Deborah Crocker at

Current parents can also login to this site’s password-protected Community Section to view board meeting agendas, meeting minutes, bylaws, policies, and more.

Every month or so, we…READ MORE »
