Montessori Parent Teacher Organization

Please attend the PTO-hosted events throughout the year. It is a great way to be involved with your child’s school and to meet new people!

PTO hosts a series of events that provide fun activities for our families as well as fundraising events to support our school and our wonderful teachers.

Listed below are a few of our events.

More information will be available as each event nears.

  • We raise funds to provide support to the school and its wonderful teachers and try to have as much fun as possible with those fundraisers!
  • We host a beginning of the year picnic (held in August) to give families a chance to get to know each other.
  • We host a costume party in October.
  • We help keep maintenance costs down by organizing a fall and spring outdoor clean up day.
  • We host three PTO meetings a year. Each meeting has its own topic. We provide babysitting at those meetings so everyone has the opportunity to attend.
  • 1st Meeting – Topic: Time with Your Child’s Teacher
  • 2nd Meeting – Topic: Transitioning from Montessori to a Traditional School
  • Topic: What to expect in the Montessori Kindergarten Program or Elementary Program
  • 3rd Meeting– Topic: PTO Board elections
  • Fall Mum Sale
  • February – Montessoirée – Held at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Evansville, this dinner/dance/auction is a fun adult evening with custom auction items created by Montessori children!
  • Scrips Gift Cards-November & December-We raise money for the school when parents purchase our gift cards to pay for everyday purchases in place of cash, checks and credit cards
  • Ongoing fundraisers – Box Tops for Education and AmazonSmile

There are many ways to become involved. Before each event, we send home information and volunteer opportunities-no experience necessary. If you want to find out more or volunteer, email

Montessori has an active PTO and we hope you will join us by volunteering and coming to the meetings. It is a great way to be involved with your child’s school and to meet new people!

“Montessori teaches children the fun and love of learning itself. It is the only school that allows children to learn at their own pace. The results are astounding and surpass what children are doing in a traditional school setting. My six year old daughter requested chapter books for her birthday and reads simply because she enjoys it! We have no doubt that Montessori gives children a solid educational foundation that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.”

“Montessori Academy encourages children to find joy in learning. They provide an education that encourages children to be self-disciplined with an internal sense of purpose and motivation. Montessori is a warm and supportive community for children. The children are happy, intellectually simulated and secure. Montessori works!”

“Montessori provides a dynamic, encouraging learning environment. Students strive for independence through consistent, direct sensory experiences. They are encouraged to think creatively, constructively critique their own work as they develop, be collaborative and observe, experience and engage. Montessori asks them to challenge themselves enough to fail at times and helps them celebrate their many successes. The commitment of the teachers is second to none. Students leave with a lifetime appreciation of and intreats in learning, a sense of community and a better understanding of the world.”

“Montessori Academy is a school that individualizes education based on students’ abilities and performance levels, learning strengths, as well as their personal interests. Montessori develops and inspires excellence in academic, leadership and entrepreneurial development.”
