We are now working towards new goals of: providing Montessori certification training to the PK/K and Middle School teachers at Charles Ellis Montessori Academy; working with SCCPSS to make sure new hires at Charles Ellis continue to receive Montessori training; continuing our annual Child in Nature Symposium in partnership with Oatland Island Wildlife Institute and St. Andrews Academy; and hosting a series of free or low-cost Montessori training workshops for in-home, church-based and independent daycare providers throughout Chatham County.

We are proud to announce that we recently completed our initial goal of raising $110,500 which covered the cost of providing Elementary 1 and Elementary 2 Montessori Certification to 12 teachers at Charles Ellis and providing four Montessori workshops for the community-at-large, including the first two Child in Nature Symposia.

If you would like to support our efforts, you can make a donation via Paypal using the button above, or send a check made out to MESS to: 36 East 45th Street, Savannah, GA 31405.

Please let us know where we can send a receipt for tax purposes.  We are a 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
