Build a Bridge

2021 annual fund



Ratner Montessori School’s Annual Fund for Creative Learning: Build a Bridge
The Pink Tower, Brown Stair, Golden Beads, Movable Alphabet, Red Rods, Land and Water Forms, Classification Cards, Binomial Cube … Montessori materials like these help students Build a Bridge from concrete to abstract concepts and from fundamental to advanced skills. At Ratner Montessori School, we strive to Build a Bridge from the Toddler years through Middle School and beyond by making connections across the curriculum, educating the whole child, and fostering diversity. The theme Build a Bridge represents our connections—the commitment of all our community in providing excellence in education and support for all students, through a focus on the following areas:

Scholarship Assistance: Give to this focus area to Build a Bridge for students and families in need to benefit from the Ratner Montessori difference.

Peace and Diversity Curriculum: Give to this focus area to Build a Bridge to a stronger community, prepared to support a just and equitable world.  

Co-Curricular Programs: Give to this focus area to Build a Bridge to well-rounded content by extending and enriching student learning in Physical Education, Visual Arts/STEAM, Music, and Jewish Studies.

When you give to Ratner Montessori School’s Annual Fund for Creative Learning, you Build a Bridge that connects students with the community, fills the gap between tuition and expenses and continues the growth of our Montessori curriculum. Your donation helps students Build a Bridge to a bright, successful future.
