2018 Annual Fund

Dear Parents and Friends of Valley Montessori,

In 1976, Valley Montessori School opened its doors with one classroom and six eager primary students. I am grateful to Beth Marshall, a Montessori teacher and founder of VMS, for realizing her dream to deliver the very best quality Montessori experience for children in the valley. This vision is still alive and has grown from that one classroom to a flourishing school with over 400 students from 18 months through 8th grade!

The responsibility for maintaining and enhancing the quality and strength of VMS rests in the hands of former, present and future members of the VMS community who are the beneficiaries of its past and guardians of its future. I ask you to join me in making a tax-deductible donation to our top fundraising priority, the VMS Annual Fund.

Your generous donations fill the gap between tuition revenue and true operating expenses, which further supports our teachers who are the heart of Valley Montessori. Your annual giving allows us to offer engaging and inspiring professional development for our teachers and attract and retain exceptional, dedicated and passionate Montessori educators.

Our VMS teaching teams nurture the full and unique potential of all students in a safe and respectful environment, inspiring them to create, grow and thrive. Together we share a common purpose in supporting our powerful vision to provide an outstanding Montessori education for all our students. We continue to be a nationally recognized, fully accredited, model Montessori school, inspiring students today and for generations to come.

With deep gratitude,

Ann Clark
Head of School
