Fundraising Events

We have two fundraising events each year when our entire community comes together to have fun while raising funds for the school. Please join us and mark your calendar for both of these fundraising events.

The Back to School Barbecue

The Back to School Barbecue is an event for the entire Shrewsbury Montessori School community to get together, see old friends, and meet new ones. The BBQ also is an important fundraiser raising over $10,000 for the Annual Fund. We have opportunities for sponsorships, raffles, and a silent auction. The event is held on the Shrewsbury campus at the end of September.

The Taste of SMS

The Taste of SMS, like the fall Barbecue, is both a fundraising and a community event. Every winter, at the Worcester Campus, our families gather to enjoy a potluck style dinner celebrating our diverse community. This year, we are adding a fundraising component that will focus on special experiences. Families will be able to sign up for an experience for a set donation amount. For example, a family may provide a dinner for 6-8 people at their home or someone with a special talent could offer a workshop to others. These experiences will provide social opportunities for our community as well as raise money to support our programs.

“The needs of mankind are universal. Our means of meeting them create the richness and diversity of the planet. The Montessori child should come to relish the texture of that diversity.” – Maria Montessori
