"Montessori Children’s School is exceptional! The teachers and staff are loving, supportive, and take pride in providing an authentic Montessori education. MCS nurtures and encourages a student’s individual interests while providing a sense of community. My children have grown and thrived during their time at MCS. Their self-confidence and self-esteem have flourished along with their love of academics" -Current Parent

Volunteer Hours

We ask that each family’s contribution be the equivalent of 50 hours of Time, Treasure, and Talent(referred to as TTT going forward) or any combination of the three. For contributions of supplies and materials, receipts may be submitted to the office and accounted for on the Transparent Classroom app.
For time spent on a project, fundraising event, or any work done on behalf of the school, the volunteer will receive a credit for $20 per hour toward the balance of TTT. We will be posting a list of Time, Talent, and Treasure ideas on Transparent Classroom.
Please continue to check Transparent Classroom for changes and updates as our campus needs are continually evolving. Any unfulfilled balance of TTT will be billed as a final invoice for the school year. We greatly value our families and know that each one of you is an important piece of our puzzle that would not be complete without you.
TIME- Giving the gift of time can come in many different forms. Members of the Board ofDirectors give generously of their time to help advise the Head of School and provideGovernance to the administration. Parents and families donate their time to come and helpbeautify our campus. Parents also help organize the Fundraisers that are so crucial in maintainingour budget and help provide for the unforeseen expenses that crop up during the year.TALENT- Building skills come in handy when fences, gates, and buildings need replacing orrepair. Tech skills are sometimes needed to upgrade and maintain our IT resources. Organizingthe Uniform Rescue room so that parents can easily find their child’s size. The possibilities arevirtually endless for the donation of one’s talent.TREASURE-Donations to our Annual Fund help to bridge the gap between our tuition revenueand expenses. Participating in fundraisers and inviting your family, friends, and neighbors toparticipate as well, are some of the creative ways to help.
