Gifts & Getting Involved

Support and service to an organization you believe in is not just something that we ask of Shaw Montessori parents; it is a core lesson we teach our students beginning at the earliest level and continuing through Middle School. Our students are groomed in an environment that values helpfulness, and they are given daily opportunities to aid their peers at school and to contribute to the wider society as well. Primary and Elementary students do service work outside their classroom throughout the year, and the lesson culminates in having all Middle School students spend time at various local service organizations. These experiences shape them, and they leave us ready, willing, and able to contribute to the society through a lifetime of leadership and service.

We ask Shaw Montessori parents to engage in this same lesson. Through your gifts of time, talent, and resources, you show your meaningful support of this school and the work we do. Volunteer opportunities are many. We encourage you to get involved in your child’s school.

Support of Shaw Montessori’s fundraising effort is equally important. Fundraising makes up the difference between covering basic expenses and positioning Shaw Montessori to have financial stability and flexibility that allows it to fulfill its mission and serve its students. It is our hope that every Shaw Montessori family will contribute an amount that is meaningful for them.

The levels of support differ for each family, but the need for 100% participation is constant.
