Bummer! If they don't participate, soon they'll stop being involved.

If the format of the meeting is modified to encourage others to be involved in
the meeting, then they'll be involved.
Review the previous month's activities and ask the committee (parents) for
feedback both good and bad.
Ask questions of the attending parents. Put in an "open forum" section of
the meeting where everyone gets a chance to ask or input whatever they
choose. If people feel that their input is being actively solicited and_
LISTENED_ to then they'll take part.
