A BIG Thank you to the families of Room 9, Mrs. Kelly Greenne’s class, for hosting our October Teacher & Staff Appreciation luncheon!
60% of our goal achieved!
We just hit 60% of our annual goal and appreciate all the generous donations received thus far, and while we are doing great, we still only have 38% of our families participating! There is no deadline for donating to Direct Donations, you can do it at any time in the year, so if you have not donated yet, please do so today.
Direct donations help fund many of the school assemblies, Art in Action, field trips, computer lab and most importantly, TEACHER AIDES. Your generous donations have a direct impact on students, so keep the momentum going! Donate online at nsmontessori.org/donate or leave a check in the office. email@example.com.
The Box Tops fundraiser for NSM successfully raised several hundred dollars for the school last year. The next deadline to turn in your Box Tops by is October 25! Please get out your scissors over Fall Break and check for unclipped Box Tops around the house. They can be found on packages of Ziploc bags, Cheerios cereal, and many other household products. Box Tops can be dropped off in the front office. Thank you so much for all your help!
