Parker Montessori has SMALL HANDS THAT HELP.
We are always looking for opportunity for our children to learn and experience the joy of giving back to the community. We strongly believe in teaching empathy and the need to serve others who may not be as fortunate as us.
A tree filled with ornaments that hold requests from families in need during the holiday season. We have been privileged to serve the Parker Task Force, Ronald McDonald House Charities and other organizations over the years. We have been teaming up with Palmer Elementary school in Aurora the last few years. Our generous families will involve their children in the shopping for items requested by their adoptive family. We want the students to experience the joy of giving, and knowing they can help!
We team up with the Parker Task Force for an annual food drive. Our older children will organize food items by category and makes a field trip to Parker Task force with the goodies our families donate. This helps us with sorting, our math and writing skills and the value of being part of a viable community in our neighborhood.
We have an annual Trike-a-thon to benefit St Jude’s Hospital. All students from toddlers and up participate in it. It is a fun event for our families!
We had another opportunity this year to have a drive to benefit an elementary school, Texas that was affected by Hurricane Harvey in 2017.Our students and families collected school supplies and Parker Montessori shipped them to Houston. We were happy to read the big thank you letter from our friends in Houston!
Our children visit the senior centers in our neighborhood a few times a year. We go trick-o-treating at the Senior center and do a costume parade. The children also enjoy singing to the senior citizens. The seniors appreciate the children visiting them. This gives our children an opportunity to bring joy to our elders.
