New Projects for MESS!

We are excited to announce that MESS has successfully completed its first project – partnering with SCCPSS to raise $110,000 to provide training leading to full Elementary 1 and Elementary 2 Montessori certification for our first cohort of teachers at Charles Ellis Montessori Academy, a public Montessori magnet school in Savannah, GA. Twelve teachers are on track to complete the certification program. Huge thanks are due to our donors and partners – SCCPSS, Charles Ellis Montessori PTA, Charles Ellis Montessori teachers, and all of the parents and community members who have helped us over the years and made this possible. You are all amazing!!!

MESS is now looking towards the future and contemplating new projects, which could include:
– Continuing our partnership with Oatland Island Wildlife Institute, St Andrews Academy, and the Charles Ellis PTA to host the annual Child in Nature Symposium.
– Providing training towards Primary Montessori certification for Charles Ellis’ PK/K teachers. This would be in partnership with other area Montessori schools.
– Providing training towards Erdkinder Montessori certification for Charles Ellis’ Middle School teachers.
– Partnering with SCCPSS to work on ongoing teacher training needs due to turnover and towards making Charles Ellis into the best public Montessori school in the country.
– Creating a free or low-cost series of Montessori teacher training workshops for local in-home, church-based, and independent daycare providers.

With these goals in mind, we are continuing our annual fundraising efforts and we are looking for volunteers who would like to be involved in these future efforts. Please contact us at savannahmess@gmail.com if you would like to get involved.
