Montessori Minutes 11/15

 In Branding

Hello Preschool Montessori Families,


As an Arizona Native it continues to amaze me how many of our outdoor planned events get rained out…

Due to the rainy and damp weather our Munch and Sing is canceled for tomorrow. Instead of rescheduling the event during this full time of year for families we would like to invite you instead to attend a Music Together class at your convenience with your child during the month of December. Music Classes are on Wednesday mornings.

Please email Ms. Kerby directly to RSVP to attend December 4th, 11th or 18th.


Hello From Ms. Kerby!

In music class we sang:

  1. Sneaking ‘Round the Room – With Scarves!
  2. The Sounds of Fall
  3. Old Brass Wagon
  4. One Little Owl
  5. Little Blue Car – With frame Drums
  6. Tomorrow’s Now Today

Musically Yours,

Kami Kerby
In-School Music Together Specialist
Licensed Facilitator

Support our School through Tax Donations

Please give and forward links to friends and family that live in Arizona and ask them to give to support our wonderful school community. It makes a difference!

Click to Donate through the Private School Tax Credit

Our Private Montessori School gives out around $45,000.00 a year in scholarships. We are able to offer these scholarships because of the Arizona Private School tax credit program. The best part is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes with this program as well. So, if you give $500, you can deduct that $500 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may contribute up to $1,138. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $569.

Click to Donate through the Public School Tax Credit

The public school tax credit program is the perfect way to give and support San Tan’s K-12 Charter School specials programs.  The program is a win/win for everyone. The best part is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.
