Making PCMS a Reality 2016-2017 Program Fee

Hello PCMS Parents,

You spoke and we listened! The frequent sale-oriented fundraisers are out the door! No more cookie dough to pander to your neighbors. No more fruit and nuts to sell to grandma!

The survey to which many of you responded in the fall of 2015 overwhelmingly supported the idea of a simple program fee rather than a multitude of annoying sales to raise money.  We are pleased to announce that, starting with the 2016-17 school year, the Friends of PCMS Board will implement a $50.00 program fee for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

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:

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

We will continue to host the silent auction and Moving 4 Montessori because these events are part of the fabric of our PCMS history. We will also continue to organize functions that promote family interaction, such as the restaurant fundraisers, 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 you can pay online from your PayPal account using the easy form below.

We look forward to the best year ever at PCMS – a year packed with education, enrichment and growing young minds.

Thank you!

The Friends of PCMS Board
