Parent Volunteer Program Option
Families are asked to contribute 20 annual volunteer service hours. Parents may opt out by paying a $20 per hour fee or $400 per year, divided biannual installments of $200 due at the beginning of each semester. This fee is fully refundable if parents fulfill the required 10 hours of volunteer work per semester. Volunteer activities help familiarize parents with the Montessori method and help keep our costs low. Projects include: building improvements, landscaping projects, playscape improvements, gardening projects, weekly laundry, janitorial assistance, minor administrative tasks, etc.
In addition to tuition income, Salado Montessori relies on contributions to the annual fund and other fundraising efforts in order to meet operating expenses and keep tuition at a competitive rate. The annual fund provides a critical source of income that is necessary to enhance our programs and facilities, maintain steady growth, and help with forecasting as we plan for the future. We strive for 100 percent participation from our parent community in the Annual Fund. We ask for a yearly tax-deductible gift of $500 per family, and understand that some families may be able to contribute more and some will feel more comfortable giving less. All gifts are greatly appreciated, no matter the amount. You may choose to contribute in monthly installments with your tuition payments, or you can choose to give once yearly.
