Our Annual Walk-A-Thon donation period is coming to a close. We ask that all paper pledge forms along with collected donations be submitted by December 7th. Our online donation page will close on December 10th.
Students and families have done a great job of helping support CMS by getting sponsors and donations. As of today we are at 53% of our overall school fundraising goal for our walk-a-thon with about half of our students having at least one donation registered. No contribution is too small, every bit helps CMS invest in security upgrades, new lunch tables and the Building Our Future campaign.
If you have not signed up for a free online donation page there is still time simply click here. You will be prompted to create a free account. Once you create your account, log in and from the home page you will click +ADD STUDENT. Here you will type in Country Montessori School for the school name, select either Early Childhood or Elementary, then select your classroom, input your child’s name/ gender. A student goal and fundraising message will auto populate but you are welcome to edit the message to create your unique personal message. You are also able to upload a photo. When all the information is complete you will click ADD.
Once a student is added it creates a unique Walk-A-Thon page for each child. This page can be shared with family and friends via Facebook, Twitter, email or by simply copying the website address and texting it to friends and family.
Donations can be made by credit card directly through the student Walk-A-Thon page.
Best of all it can all be done from your phone!
Thank you to all our CMS families for your help and support, so much of what we do is only made possible through your commitment and generosity.
