Get Involved

  • The Montessori program is based on the notion that family, working with the school, will provide the optimal success for each child. Parent involvement in the school life ensures the development of this partnership.

  • Volunteering

    Volunteers are utilized in the classroom for student and teacher support, special events, field trips, cultural presentations and guest speakers. Volunteers are often needed for recess, lunch, reading tutor program, the library media center, office or instrumental music program. For our working parents, volunteering can be done from home by participating in the phone tree, and creating fliers or baking treats for upcoming events, etc.

    To get involved, please contact Office Manager Trish Baslington at 354.6409. Volunteer applications are handled through our central office.

  • Fundraising

  • Scrip

    When you purchase from Scrip, you are purchasing gift cards that are used just like cash. You can use Scrip to purchase everyday items like food, clothing, and other essentials. With every purchase, you earn revenue for the Commuity of Montessori Parents. 

    How does Scrip generate revenue for CoMP?

    The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of Scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the Scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Great Lakes Scrip Center passes the amount on to CoMP. This discount, from 1% to 25%, is given to CoMP's fundraising efforts. 

    Scrip is a popular fundariser because families don't have to sell anything, and are not asked to buy things they don't need. CoMP families generate funds by making regular household purchases. Groceries, clothings, toys, gifts, and even gasoline can be purchased through Scrip.

    How to enroll in Scrip
