Annual Circle of Giving
Help Us ProviDe Our Students With incredible experiences
Independent schools like Bridgeview Montessori depend on an annual fund to help support the amazing programming offered by the school. Tuition costs are kept as low as possible so our Circle of Giving provides the needed boost to offer these amazing experiences. Funds from our Circle of Giving help us to offer special programming, maintain our building, and start new projects. Watch our weaving grow as each gift is represented with a strand!
A Letter from the Vice-President of the Board, Leslie Dominguez-Santos
Dear Bridgeview Montessori Family and Friends,
It has been another wonderful start to the new school year. Students have settled into classroom routines, old friendships have rekindled, and new ones have been forged. Signs of students and teachers digging deep are all around.
Our wonderful small school is beginning its 2017-18 Circle of Giving campaign. Annually, the school uses funds from the Circle of Giving donations to make the school even better. Some years, donations are used for important infrastructure purchases and/or work. Other years, donations are used for Montessori materials, teacher trainings, and exciting new projects. Tuition dollars make the school run; Circle of Giving dollars make the school run beautifully.
We hope you will consider making a donation to our Circle of Giving. The circle weaving in the front lobby represents the importance of each gift. Each gift is represented in a strand woven together with all the others, symbolizing our united community working together. Please give as you are able; every donation helps.
Our school is currently working on two new initiatives, both of which will ideally benefit from Circle of Giving dollars. Last year’s generous grant from the Ocean Spray Foundation allowed us to begin developing our outdoor classroom. Inventing, collaborating, constructing and experimenting have all begun in this vibrant space, and it can certainly be further enriched. In addition, the school has begun realizing several years’ worth of work in updating our school technology, particularly with an eye towards tools for school/home communication. The launch of our new website is the cornerstone of these initiatives; we hope to continue updating our communication channels through technology.
We, therefore, ask you to contribute to our annual Circle Of Giving. As always, our goal is 100% participation from our school community. Your gift to the school is tax deductible, and we have many levels of support from which to choose. If you are able, please consider joining our group of Leadership Donors with a gift of $250 or more. Your generosity at any level of giving allows our school to thrive and continue to support our community of learners.
Thank you for your generosity.
