Fundraising News

While the vast majority of Montessori schools throughout the country operate as private institutions, May Sands Montessori School does not charge tuition but relies on State funding, grants, and donations to operate its programs.  There are many unique costs associated with creating a Montessori environment, some of which include: special Montessori materials, curriculum training for teachers, two adults in each classroom for more personalized learning, and experiential enrichment programming.  Each year, there is a financial gap between what the Florida Public School system funds and the unique costs of running a tuition-free, Montessori school of choice.  This year’s gap is $126,000 and thanks to our Fundraising Committee’s campaign development, we have raised $56,740 to date.   

May Sands Montessori is not just a school; it truly is a community, comprised of students, families, and school personnel, working together.  Our school’s fundraising campaigns require input, enthusiasm, and participation from our entire school community to be successful. 

 We are 45% toward our annual fundraising goal and we need your support. 

All of the scheduled events are posted on our school’s online calendar: If you’re not able to attend our upcoming events, please help promote them as well as our Annual Fund campaign with your network of friends, family, and neighbors.
