Away We Go! Race for Education to be held October 18
MMS will be participating in the Race for Education this year on Thursday, October 18. This year’s run will be an uplifting celebration of Montessori Education on the lawn of the University of Charleston!
A kick-off packet will be sent home with your child next week! Please take a moment to read through the information so you will know what we will ask from you to help make this event a success. We look forward to having a fun and healthy activity that will also raise money for educational materials and financial aid.
The Race for Education is an all-school event. Parents, grandparents and friends are invited to support and attend. Please for information on volunteer opportunities and other details.
Our fundraising goal for the Race for Education is $12,500.
If we reach our goal, the funds raised will provide:
- Montessori materials for Primary, including new puzzle maps and zoology and botany materials, as well as a new shed for outdoor environment storage.
- hardwood floor refinishing and new, locally-made shelves for both Lower Elementary classrooms.
- reference materials and technology upgrades for Upper Elementary.
- atlases, maps, and other reference materials for the Middle School.
- funds for three financial aid awards at 30 percent of tuition apiece (approximately $7,400 total).
We look forward to seeing you at the Race for Education – Away We Go!
