Giving & Getting Involved
Montessori Academy’s continued growth depends in a large part on the time, talent and resources of every parent.
Your child’s tuition supplies most of the annual operating budget for our school. However, there is still a gap, which needs to be filled from other sources – cash contributions, fundraising events and voluntary services – in other words YOU. Please click, print and complete the “Getting Involved Parent Sign-Up Sheet” so that we can best utilize your talents and interests. It is through parent support that has allowed Montessori Academy to create a caring environment and a wonderful education for the total development of your child. Past generations of parents and families have given unselfishly to help make Montessori Academy the special place it is today. Generous donations from these parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends have helped fund faculty and staff professional development, scholarships for students, classroom enrichment materials and activities, field trips, playground equipment and capital improvements such as building play areas.
Our current students are reaping the benefits of not only the fundraising efforts but also of the many volunteer hours contributed by so many. Everyone is able to help in different ways; all we ask is that you make the commitment to help in the way that is best for you and your family.
- Be involved – volunteer.
- Be knowledgeable – attend parent/steacher conferences, observe classes.
- Be informed – attend Parents Association Meeting, read the Weekly Bulletin, and visit our website.
- Contribute financially.
Ways of giving contributions:
- Monetary gifts
- Designating the school as beneficiary for shopping rewards programs; i.e. Target
- Gifts in kind
