Hello MMS Families!

As most of you know we here at MMS collect Box Tops for Education to earn money for our school. This year’s collection is coming to a close so I wanted to send a final shout out to go ahead and bring in any Box Tops your child(ren) may be collecting at home.

The final submission date is Tuesday, April 15. Then, I will do a final Box Tops count and whichever class has earned the most will get rewarded with an ice cream party!

Right now, there are many classes in the running for 1st Place! Check out the numbers for each class:

Ms. Crystal Sorrow-100
Ms. Martha Dolan-241
Ms. Christina Eckstein-343
Ms. Elizabeth Falls-99
Ms. Renee Brohamer-456
Ms. Erin Sorel-954
Mr. Richard Aslanian-821
Ms. Christina Miller-843
Ms. Sherilyn Farris-354

Thank you for your ongoing participation, and for helping close out this year’s Box Tops count successfully. Be sure to look in our May Newsletter for which class collected the most and for how much money MMS earned as a school.

Have a fantastic upcoming Spring Break!

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!
