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
