When your child or one you knew attended Madison Montessori, you must have recognized it as a special community that fosters independence, self-esteem, integrity, and personal responsibility. I see this as well through my daughter in the 'big class' and my daughter who is now thriving in first grade beyond the walls of MMS.
The Montessori curriculum uniquely empowers each child by providing the foundation to excel academically based on his/her own initiative, to develop respect for self and others, and to value the world in which we live. Self-confidence, curiosity about the world, and a lifelong love of learning characterize the MMS graduate.
MMS is now in its 37th year, and the number of children who have been guided through their preschool years by the wonderful staff is amazing in itself. As your family must have lots of memories of MMS, I hope you will consider donating to this year's Annual Fund. It remains the cornerstone of school funding, helps to offset some of the operating costs that are not covered by tuition, and is the only supplemental program for the school.
Your gift is fully tax deductible and may possibly be matched by your employer or designated to MMS through the United Way. All contributions are gratefully appreciated and will help the school to continue to educate and serve the children and families within our community. Thank you kindly in advance for your generous contribution.
