2017-2018 Program Fee

Hello PCMS Parents,

Welcome back! We are all looking forward to another exciting year at PCMS. Last year we implemented
a program fee to offset the costs of programming in our school community. This change was based on
feedback from the community. This turned out to be a very welcome and successful adjustment.

We are pleased to announce that for the 2017-18 school year, the Friends of PCMS Board will continue
with a $50.00 per student program fee for children in kindergarten through eighth grade. This fee
supplants the need for miscellaneous fundraisers that detract from our focus of child development.

Unlike Canton Montessori and many other Montessori programs, we are fortunate to enjoy a tuitionfree
Montessori education. It is quite a bargain! The reality, however, is that in lieu of our sale-oriented
fundraisers, this program fee is necessary to deliver the quality programming that each child at PCMS

This $50.00 program fee will be used for:

  • Kid Fit
  • Music Education
  • Art Education
  • Other enrichment programs

We will continue to host a spring fundraiser and Moving 4 Montessori because these events are part of
the fabric of our PCMS history and build our community. We will also continue to organize events that
promote family interaction, such as restaurant fundraisers and skate night, in which participation is
entirely optional.

The program fee will be collected at the beginning of the school year. Payment can be made by check
or cash in the front office or online using the form below. Online payments are subject to a small processing fee that has been included.

We look forward to another great school year at PCMS – one packed with education, enrichment, and
growing young minds.

Thank you!
The Friends of PCMS Board

Art Speaks

12799047_1687377381520407_5891804606138178566_n[1]Your child recently participated in Portage Collaborative’s “Art Speaks” project in which they created artistic expressions through paintings on canvas. TheArt Speaks Project was brought to life by the Art Club of Walsh University, our wonderful art teacher Becky Taylor and volunteer parents. Your child’s artwork is now being displayed outside his or her classroom.

We are selling this artwork for your choice of the following:
A minimum cost of 8 dollars
A preferred cost of 10 dollars
A premium cost of 12 dollars

10% of the proceeds from the sale will be going to a local charity that provides school lunches to children in need. The remaining proceeds will be used for enrichment programs at PCMS including the art program.

Your child has given through his or her talents and through helping children less fortunate. In turn your child will receive the proceeds invested back into their school programming. This truly is an example of how “in giving we receive”. Therefore art speaks through expression, though giving and through receiving.

You can pay the school office directly with cash or check (made payable to Friends of PCMS) or you can send it in with your child to school or DONATE VIA PAYPAL today!
