For Small Hands

For Small Hands offers toys, games and practical life items sized for, well, small hands, and gives to the school a percentage of purchases made using our school code (101965). The school uses these donations to order many of the classroom materials used by your children every day. This fall the school is organizing a group order, which could provide free shipping to shoppers as well as increase the percent donated to the school. We must reach a $500 group threshold to receive the free shipping, so browse the catalog you found in your parent pocket and bring a little Montessori into your home. Orders must be placed by Oct. 19. Questions? Contact Allison O’Boyle at oboyleas@gmail.com. We already have orders totaling over $160. Make yours today!

Dine Out At Chipotle

 November 7 from 4 to 8 pm, at the Chipotle by the mall. Once a $300 threshold is reached, the school will receive a whopping one-third of the total purchased. Mark your calendars, invite your friends. More details to come.
