All donations support public Montessori education focusing on opportunities for students to learn outside the classroom.
The 2012-2013 GRS Annual Fund supports the school’s operating budget with annual unrestricted gifts and a focus on our Key Experiences, experiential education programs for all students. For the 2012-2013 school year, the goal of the Annual Fund is to generate $90,000.
Your support ensures GRS can provide these learning opportunities to all students, regardless of income. By investing your money in Great River, you will be part of a rare opportunity to change the landscape of public education.
What is it for?
Each year GRS students participate in key experiences. Learning outside the classroom provides ways for students to connect the textbook lessons to real life. They also connect with teachers and fellow students in an informal setting forming rich relationships that deepen during a student’s time at GRS.
During each key experience, students encounter people, places and environments that encourage a more focused academic exploration either during the experience or when they return to the classroom. They provide ways for students to learn and develop independence, interdependence, self-confidence and relationships with others.
"An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking, it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live." Maria Montessori
