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
deserves.

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
