Principal Engdall’s top 5 reasons for you to consider a tax credit donation to

Augustus H. Shaw Jr. Montessori School:


5: You can make a tax credit contribution of up to $200 if single or $400 if married and *deduct that amount directly from your 2020 Arizona tax return! Like free money for you and us! Contributions need to be made by December 31, 2020 or April 15th 2021 to apply to your 2020 tax return. (*Please consult your tax preparer.)


4: Our tortoise, chickens and bunnies need to be fed!


3: 100% of our students enjoy the outdoor environments, your tax credit will fund the cost of these programs!


2: Your donations can be used towards the cost of field trips and big trips.


And the Number One reason you should give a tax credit contribution to Shaw Montessori: You can expose our students to new opportunities and truly change their lives in a positive way, and it is as easy as going to: https://phxschools.org/district/about/tax-credit/ or downloading the form below and submitting it to the school office.


You can have an even bigger impact on the students at Shaw Montessori if you print extra copies of the tax credit form and give them to your family, friends and coworkers and maybe even post it on your Facebook and Twitter pages

The year 2020 is winding down (whew!). What a year it has been. As we approach the holiday season, it is important to remember what we are grateful for. Friends, health, family, etc. I know all the family togetherness has been stressful so this week I am going to offer you some fun, socially distant activities you can do with your family. No stress involved!


Here is a link that will take you to an article for 8 free light displays that you can enjoy from your car:

Here is a list of holiday drive-in movies you can go to:

Lunch Bunch

Big picture
  • Wednesday’s the Upper Elementary students will meet from 11:40 -12:40
  • Thursday’s the Lower Elementary Students will meet from 12-1
  • Friday’s the Middle School students will be meeting from 11:30-12:30



Lunch Bunch is optional and it is really just a space where kids can talk to each other about whatever is on their minds. They can come for all or part of the hour on their scheduled day. We hope to continue this format for as long as school remains online.


We look forward to seeing your children!!

Your child can join on their designated day by going to google classrooms, hitting the plus sign in the top right corner and hitting join. You would then input the following class code: npsjlgu

Yearbook Photos

Big picture
Hi Shaw families,


Work has begun on our 2020/2021 yearbook! For the class group page photos, I am hoping everyone can send in a headshot of their child. Do not worry about the background, as I will be cutting and pasting all the children together. The first photo above (left) is an example of what I would need.


Photos can be sent to patricia.karnes@phxschools.org or patricia.karnes@pesd1.org

When sending please note child's full name and class.


Hoping to include every child, thank you in advance Shaw!

Ms. Patti
