"Imitation is the first instinct of the awakening mind." —Maria Montessori
Ways to be Involved
Parent involvement is critical to the success of our school, and our teachers and administrative team are truly grateful to each parent who gives time toward making our school a stronger community. The majority of Cedars fundraising is done through events that focus on building community. It is only with the support and hard work of our parents that these events can occur. Contributions to the Cedars Montessori School annual fund provide support for many endeavors. Below are just a few ways parent contributions support Cedars in its efforts on the children's behalf:
new outdoor opportunities for students (such as the elementary ropes course)
new Montessori materials for each classroom
tuition assistance for students
continuing education for staff
beautiful and inviting outdoor environments
