No one can do it all alone. Every great endeavor that's ever been has been accomplished from the work of many people. What greater endeavor, then, than the raising of our children?
With education cuts across Arizona and the entire country it is becoming increasingly difficult - for all schools - to hire teachers, introduce new curriculum, purchase supplies, or to do any of the myriad of things a school must do to be a safe, inviting learning environment for children. Despite all these cuts, we at Mission Montessori Schools think we've done pretty well. We have wonderful, dedicated staff and teachers that truly love what they do, backed by what we believe to be the best educational curriculum in existence.
We have to admit, however, that we couldn't do any of it without the amazing support from our parents and community members. From the PTO and all they do, to the parents who help with field trips and in the individual classrooms, and those who have given truly substantial amounts of time and resources, helping to make our school even better.
It is this partnership that allows us to create such a beautiful environment. To keep it that way, we need your help. There are so many ways that you can get involved. If your time is severely limited, consider a donation to the PTO or check with your child's teacher and find out what items would be helpful in the classroom. Does your company match charitable contributions? Mission Montessori Schools is classified as a 501(c)(3) organization and donations may qualify as a federal tax deduction (please check with your accountant). Does your company offer grants that we may qualify for, or would you be able to help us apply for one?
Even the little things make a big difference. Help your child succeed by making a healthy breakfast in the morning. Send fruit or vegetables as a snack. Prepare a healthy balanced lunch.
Not every one of us can help in a significant, noticeably way. That's ok. The most important jobs require the most effort. It doesn't need to all happen at once, but it does need to happen, one step at a time.
