Dear Friends,

Last year, The Montessori School of the Mahoning Valley celebrated its 45th anniversary. We spent time joyfully looking back over wonderful memories, and sharing gratitude for the many influences that have allowed us to remain in the Mahoning Valley since 1976. 

Although we have enjoyed reminiscing and looking back over our history, this year we’re ready to look forward – forward to the future of our school, forward to the future of our students, and forward to the future of our community. 

This year, we’re focusing on strengthening all the key elements that make MSMV so special. We’re strengthening our unique curriculum; we’re strengthening our cooperative community; we’re strengthening our commitment to our mission: to provide a quality, educational environment that develops independent, life-long learning while instilling respect, responsibility, and resourcefulness. 

As we continue with this important work, we recognize that passion and commitment can only take us so far, and that the support of generous donors is vital to keep us moving forward. 

These thoughtful gifts touch every part of the school. By donating, you will provide opportunities not covered by tuition, such as: 

enhancements to our campus

financial assistance to families in need

increased support of MSMV’s outstanding teachers

field trips or presentations that enhance our students’ education and experience

Annual giving is part of the financial lifeblood of our school. Your generosity helps us continue to provide a Montessori education in a beautiful and safe learning environment, where children can become the best version of themselves. Every donation helps.
