Opportunities for Parents
MSOE ENCOURAGES PARTICIPATION FROM ALL FAMILIES
Volunteers are an integral, important part of our school. Their efforts, time, and enthusiasm help to ensure the success of our fundraising and school events and enhancement projects.
Opportunities for volunteering are flexible enough to suit your schedule. Parent Volunteer forms are sent to all families with information on each committee. Whether it’s a one-time event, such as reading a story or teaching a song, or on-going committee work, volunteering is a great chance to meet new people and further the Mission of the School. Review the school calendar for school events.
MSOE Opportunities to Give Back
FOR MANY FAMILIES, THE MONTESSORI SCHOOL ON EDGEWOOD MAY BE THEIR FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH A PRIVATE SCHOOL
Private, non-profit schools rely on support from their families and friends to help meet fundraising goals that are used to support operating expenses and financial aid programs. All gifts, large and small, are very meaningful. Gifts of time, expertise, and talent are equally valuable. If you are interested in helping in this way, please call the Director at 203-772-3210 or donate online!
