Throughout the year Corvallis Montessori School hosts a variety of events designed to celebrate and support the school as well as build community. Many aspects of these events are uniquely CMS, so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our exciting annual calendar of events!
The CMS Annual Campaign is one of the primary vehicles for financially supporting the daily programs and operations at CMS. Tuition revenues do not cover all our costs. Like other non-profit schools, CMS depends on support from current and alumni families along with friends in the extended community.
Gifts made for the Annual Campaign have a direct impact on the everyday lives of CMS students and are used for such items as: maintaining or enhancing facilities, the School's library, and much more.
Started in 2008, the CMS auction is an annual dinner event. It is the school’s biggest fundraiser, typically raising about $30,000 to support the CMS financial aid program and other programs for students in the Corvallis community as well as meet other important school needs.
Corvallis Spring Roll is our way of bringing together the greater Corvallis community around shared values of getting children active outdoors and celebrating community livability. Many bike commuters are kids, too!
“Establishing lasting peace is the work of education…” --Maria Montessori
The goal of this year’s MLK Jr. Children’s Celebration, is to bring messages of peace and tolerance to our community and, by doing so, bringing it to the world. The celebration will take place at the Majestic Theatre in downtown Corvallis. The celebration has three main goals; multicultural outreach, multicultural entertainment, multicultural sustenance and sharing messages of peace with the community and the world.
