Montessori Community School Fun Run

Tax deductible
Our Montessori students will have the opportunity to raise pledges for our two main Service Learning projects: The Children of Ethiopia Education Fund (COEEF), and the Navajo Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program.  Specifically, the COEEF program will give vital financial support the girls our MCS students sponsor can attend school in Ethiopia. Pledges will also help our adopted Navajo grandmothers purchase much-needed items, such as food, firewood, clothing, and gardening tools for themselves and their families, as well as yarn to weave the beautiful rugs they sell to earn a living.

Service learning is a wonderful element of our Montessori program, and teaches students about the joy and value of contributing to their community, society, and world. We encourage you to join with us in supporting your child in service learning. You can do this by:

·      Helping your child tell family and friends about the Fun Run. You’d be surprised how many friends, neighbors and grandparents are eager to support such a worthwhile event.

·      Helping your child actively participate by earning money to pledge in the Fun Run. (For example, maybe he or she could help sweep the floor or put away clothes.)

·      Helping your child to set a goal to run a certain number of laps or to raise a certain amount of funds. 

·      Attending the event (see the upcoming schedule for when your child’s class will be running) and join with them as they run their laps or cheer them on from the sidelines.
·      Volunteering to help at the event. Please email [email redacted] for details.

We look forward to this exciting service learning experience and hope you’ll participate with enthusiasm.

Sue Measom, Grandmother to one of MCS' Toddler students, was able to visit Bethlehem, one of the girls we sponsor through the COEEF Program. Stay tuned for some of her experiences in working with this wonderful education program for young girls.
