Dear PTO parents –


As you know, the PTO is in the process of applying for not for profit status.  As part of the process, the PTO has incorporated and now needs to adopt bylaws consistent with the requirements for not for profit status.  Thereafter, the 501(c) (3) application can be filed with the IRS.


Additionally, the adoption of bylaws will allow us to apply for tax exempt status.  The proposed bylaws are attached, and the PTO will be holding a brief meeting for the sole purpose of discussion and vote on the adoption of the attached bylaws.


If you have any comments in advance, you are welcome to email the PTO secretary, Jennifer Curcio at


Please plan on attending the meeting, so that we can move forward with the process!  Thank you!

Teacher Appreciation Gifts
Teacher Appreciation Gifts

adventure Each year the teachers and faculty of Millhopper Montessori School work incredibly hard to help our children learn and grow in a safe and healthy environment. During Teacher Appreciation Week we like to let them know how much we value their efforts. This year’s theme is designed to honor each individual’s interests and choices. As part of our Teacher Appreciation Week activities, the PTO Appreciation Committee is pleased to once again offer the opportunity to purchase for our teachers and staff a gift certificate to a local merchant of their choice. By many families contributing to the same gift, they are able to select something special. Participation is optional and we hope the program will alleviate some of the stress of this busy time of year. If you would like to participate, please place your order on this webpage or you may review the letter that was mailed to your home and indicate the dollar amount you wish to contribute next to the individual’s name. Please total all your contributions and return the form with cash or check (made out to MMS PTO) in an envelope to Crystal Sorrow by Friday, May 13, 2016. You may leave the envelopes at the front desk or hand them to Crystal directly. Gift certificates will be presented to each recipient during Teacher Appreciation Week with a card from the families who have contributed. Dollar amounts are not included on the card. Since the PTO is now a non-profit 501(c)(3), your donation may be tax deductible. Please speak to your tax advisor regarding tax deductions. If you are interested in assisting with planning Teacher Appreciation Week or if have any questions, please feel free to contact either of us at or Have a wonderful end of the school year!
