Northside Soccer Coaches Meeting

Northside Soccer Coaches Meeting

Calling all PWM parents. Registration for the fall youth soccer season will begin this summer in July. Northside Soccer would like to invite all parents interested in coaching a team this fall to join us for a coaches meeting at 7:00 PM on Thursday, June 15 at Happen in Northside.

Every soccer team needs a coach. And every parent is welcome to coach. Every team can and should have more than one person coaching. Every team needs 2 adult coaches and up to 3 coaches can be on the sidelines during a game.

If your child has been playing soccer on a Northside team, and you’ve been watching from the spectator’s side of the field, Northside Soccer is inviting you to switch sides this season and support your child’s team as a coach or coach’s assistant. Lot’s of soccer experience/skill is not needed or expected.

We want to start the fall season strong. Having a full compliment of coaches will help Northside Soccer recruit early and give assurance to every child who wants to play that Northside Soccer will have a team for them.

At the coaches meeting we will discuss what coaching for Northside/SAY soccer involves. Primarily, coaches organize and run weekly practices, attend all the team soccer games, participate in one preseason coaches training and complete concussion certification, and make sure that the kids have a fun and safe time. We’ll also decide how many teams we can support for the upcoming fall season. We can also discuss how to coach a team with little to no previous soccer experience if that is needed. No commitment is required to attend the meeting, but we will ask during the meeting if you are willing to coach a team.

Please send a message to to let us know you are interested.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks for supporting Northside Soccer.

Summer Garden Care

Summer Garden Care

Our kids have worked hard in the garden this spring! We need to keep the garden tended over the summer so that they can be inspired by a thriving garden when they return.

Sign up for a week at a time, starting on the Sunday listed. Each week requires watering, weeding, and harvest. One person can do all, but it can be more fun together. Watering is most essential because the plants will die without water. If the slots for a week are incomplete, please look out for essential things that need done in the garden.

Thank you so much!

Make a Difference for the Students of Parker Woods Montessori

Make a Difference for the Students of Parker Woods Montessori

The staff at Parker Woods Montessori works in collaboration with parents, guardians, and community stakeholders to provide educational and social-emotional services that foster a school of excellence in meeting or exceeding district standards for our students from various zip codes throughout the city of Cincinnati.

Our extracurricular programs are limited at this time, but they were designed or adopted to meet the needs of our student population. Our goal is to increase the number of extracurricular programs within the school, as well as establishing neighborhood satellite extracurricular programs, so our students can share the same rich experiences that will promote confidence; self-esteem; creativity; ownership; respect of differences, relationship building; team work; communication and the power to make a difference.

As a new Community Learning Center, our goal is to serve as a hub for the various communities we serve by providing a system of integrated partnerships working collaboratively with students, families, community stakeholders, schools of higher education, local businesses, corporations, churches, civic groups, health organizations and social services in order to further promote academic excellence by offering recreational, educational, social, health, civic and cultural opportunities for students, families and communities.

We encourage you to consider being a member of the Parker Woods Montessori Family by supporting our mission to develop each child for life!
