Marcos Pizza Monthly Fundraisers

Help our school earn money each month by eating at Marco’s Pizza! Order online for delivery to your home or pick up at the store! For each order placed, Marco’s will donate 15% of phone orders and 20% of online orders back to PCMS! Last year our dinner fundraising efforts raised about $1,350 for PCMS!

Be sure mention your teacher’s name when placing your order. The class with the most orders wins a free pizza party!

Keep in mind that we switch between the 30th Street & North Canton locations each month. Here’s a quick list:

  • September – 30th Street
  • October – North Canton
  • November – 30th Street
  • December – North Canton
  • January – 30th Street
  • February – North Canton
  • March – 30th Street
  • April – North Canton

Marco’s Pizza School Challenge

In addition to our monthly fundraisers with Marco’s, PCMS has been entered into the Marco’s Pizza School Challenge, so every time you order, you simply add the name of oru school to the order. We earn Pizza Points with each ONLINE order and the school with the most points at the end of the school year can win a large donation to the school! Find the details below:

  • Your school will be listed on your local Marco’s Pizza Online Ordering site.
  • When parents/friends/neighbors order online they simply add your school name to the order.
  • When parents/friends/neighbors call in or walk in an order the order taker will add your school to the order.
  • Pizza Points will be earned for every online order, any day or time during the school year. Pizza Points for Called In or Walk In orders will only be earned on the Designated Marco’s Pizza Night Fundraiser Date for your school.
  • Each school, based on number of students, will have a point factor that makes it fair so schools of all sizes can participate and each school has an equal chance of winning.
  • Online Orders will be worth 5 Pizza Points times your schools Order Factor. Called In and Walk In orders will be worth 2.5 Pizza Points. ORDER ONLINE.
  • Pizza Points earned will be updated monthly and communicated to the schools.

2018-2019 Program Fee

Hello PCMS Parents,

Welcome back! We are all looking forward to another exciting year at PCMS. Several years ago 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.

For the 2018-19 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 tuition-free 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 deserves.

This $50.00 program fee will be used for:

  • Music Education
  • Art Education
  • KidFit
  • 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 look forward to your participation in both of these.  We will also continue to organize events that promote family interaction, such as restaurant fundraisers and monthly skate nights, 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 (made out to Friends of PCMS) 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!
