Important Reminder - Carpool

Parents, please DO NOT pull around cars in the carpool line. If your child has already exited or entered your vehicle, wait patiently for the cars in front of you to move forward. We cannot risk a child being hit by a moving vehicle. The result is just too awful. Also, as a reminder the speed limit on campus is 5 mph and cell phone use while driving in the school zone is prohibited . We appreciate you observing this at all times.

Update - Meals Donated

Thank you for your support of Hunger Action Month. As of this morning, we've raised $201 that will be donated directly to the River Valley Regional Food Bank. That is approximately 1,200 meals provided by students and families of The Montessori School. We still have one more week to go! Let's see how many more meals we can provide.

It only takes a few clicks......

Please take a minute and vote for the River Valley Regional Food Bank:

Should our food bank be one of the top 50 vote receivers, $60,000 will come to our region thanks to Walmart. The drive ends October 5.

If they are on top, The River Valley Regional Food Bank will win $45,000 in cash and five of their agencies in five counties will win $3,000 each. You can vote once a day, so please do!
