MESS Needs Your Help!

Community Montessori Education
MESS hosts an annual Child in Nature Symposium in partnership with the Oatland Island Wildlife Institute, the Charles Ellis PTA, and St. Andrews Academy. We are also hoping to offer a free or low-cost Montessori workshop series for in-home, church-based, and independent daycare providers this spring. We would love volunteers to help plan these events.

Fundraiser Planning
We plan two annual fundraising events and could use help with the advance planning as well as on the days of the actual events. We will host our Holiday Family Photo Fundraiser and our Holiday Party.

The number one thing you can do to support MESS is talk to your friends and family about what we are doing. Help us find and reach out to other people who you think will want to support our goals.

To get involved, send us a note via our Contact Form with Helping Out in the subject line.
