La Tienda, 3MM’s School Store
Previously unemployed parents run 3MM’s school store, La Tienda. They learn accounting, management and customer service skills. They are also present at their child’s school on a regular basis. Students of parents employed at La Tienda maintain an above average attendance rate.
One-on-One Montessori Meetings
Frequent communication between our Montessori guides and our families, coupled with an understanding of the Montessori philosophy, contributes greatly to our children’s success in the program. In addition to the individual parent/teacher conferences, 3MM holds classroom specific meetings periodically to help parents become more familiar with the Montessori philosophy, to provide methods for continued growth and support at home, to inform parents of events and/or changes in the classroom, and to celebrate our community.
All parents of students on scholarship (50% of student body) play their part by helping around the school (cleaning, maintenance, material creation, etc.).
