National Teacher Appreciation Week: Audrey Day

We wrote this article about Ms. Day, but could've written one just as easily for Ms. D'Cruz, Ms. Green, Ms. Hurlebaus, Ms. Jameson, Ms. Livingston, or Ms. McGrath. During Teacher Appreciation Week, we take time to think about how grateful we should be for our amazing teachers every single day. Please take a look!

Building our Community!

Today Lee Montessori team members toured the construction site that our staff and students will soon call home! The inside of the building is looking great and we were so excited to finally see the actualization of the blueprints we have been pouring over for months.

Our first impressions were that the classrooms seemed even bigger than we'd pictured and that the new window spaces provide beautiful natural light throughout the building.  

Our classroom staff will get to tour the building soon and before too long it will be time to start unpacking boxes upon boxes of furniture and materials. We are counting on all our parent volunteers to make good on their promises; we have so many tiny chairs and desk to assemble!

Check back here for more updates on the construction project.

It's Official (and good news): We're NOT making a profit!

How's that for a headline?  Don't worry - our finances are fine!  But, we just received a letter from the IRS officially approving our application for tax-exempt status.  That means that any donations to Lee Montessori PCS are tax deductible to the extent that the law allows ("section 170 of the code" for those tax nerds out there).  While this may not seem like a big deal, it means that we now have access to a host of services that are only for approved nonprofits, and potential donors (this means YOU!) can now be sure that donations to us will be tax deductible, just like they would to any of the other nonprofits out there.

As some of you may know, the average wait time for getting applications reviewed by the IRS is OVER A YEAR!  The only way that we were able to get our application expedited was through the hard work and dedication of Lee Montessori PCS Board Member Abbey Hairston and our colleagues at Rosenberg Martin Greenberg - thanks to all of you!

So, if you've been waiting, it's definitely time to visit our gofundme site to make a donation!
