MCS ANNUAL FUND

As with virtually every other independent school in the US, tuition covers only a portion of the cost of each student’s experience at Montessori Community School. By contributing to this fund, you are providing us flexibility to address our school’s greatest needs. With your help MCS is able to:

  • Equip our classrooms with authentic Montessori materials.

  • Make Montessori education accessible to families in need of tuition support.

  • Offer professional development and training opportunities to our teachers and staff.

  • Maintain and improve our campus and playgrounds to keep our students safe and happy.

  • Other operating expenses.

PINK TOWER SOCIETY

Set it and forget it! Becoming a member of the Pink Tower Society, our monthly giving program, makes supporting MCS easy and convenient. Making a large, annual gift can be intimidating. But smaller monthly gifts are much more manageable, and can add up quickly. For example, for the price of a cappuccino, a $5 monthly gift becomes a $60 annual gift. And a $25 monthly gift becomes a $300 annual donation! All Pink Tower Society members are listed in our Annual Report. [add current list link?]

THE PATRICIA WEBER FAMILY FUND (NEW)

This fund was recently established by Mark Weber, and his wife Karen, in honor of his sister, Patricia Weber to provide resources to students with special needs. In 1972, Mark’s parents, Marilyn and Wayne Weber, founded the Katrice Montessori School (now known as Montessori Community School) to accommodate the special needs of their daughter, Patricia, who has Down Syndrome. With the support of family, friends, and teachers, Patricia has accomplished much and is living a full and rewarding life. [add link to new page]

JERRY MUELLER TEACHER TRAINING FUND

This fund was established in 2018 following the retirement of Jerry Mueller who served for 43 years as a teacher at MCS. Jerry had a remarkable career, helping hundreds of children to develop a lifelong enthusiasm for learning and a commitment to bettering our world. Although his passing in December 2020 has left an ache in our hearts, we are grateful for your gift that honors his legacy.
