The administration of Humberside Montessori School provides an outstanding learning environment for our children. Each classroom is beautifully and meticulously equipped. The HMSPA raises funds to further enrich the educational experiences that our children enjoy, as well as to provide events for students and families to strengthen the school community.
Unlike many private schools, the HMSPA does not levy a flat rate family donation fee or activity fee for all registered students and their families. Instead, several fundraisers are run each year.
Funds raised by the HMSPA are first used to fund a standard set of events, initiatives, and activities. Surpluses, if any, are allocated to a combination of short-term and long-term initiatives.
The HMSPA is working with the school to support the long-term school playground enhancement project.
If you would like to get involved in planning, or get involved in the conversation about these initiatives, come to our meetings, or reach out directly to us.
The HMSPA has worked closely with the school administration to plan and develop improvements to the school playground.
Phase 1 is complete, and Phase 2 is underway. Click to learn more about this exciting project!
Graduating classes in the Adolescent Program travel to different cities for graduation trips. The children conceive of and run their own fundraisers throughout the year to support these trips, and the HMSPA offers a small subsidy to help offset the travel costs for these students.
Each class is provided with a stipend for additional items to embellish the classroom environment. Items purchased have included
Each level (Casa, Lower Elem, Upper Elem & AP) is also provided with an allocation for items or experiences that benefit the whole level.

The Parents' Social Fundraiser Event is an evening event in May for parents. It provides an opportunity to socialize with other parents, and to take part in fundraising through ticket sales, a raffle and silent auction.
The HMSPA is not a registered charity, so donation tax receipts cannot be issued, but we always welcome donations from parents. You can donate via e-transfer to email@example.com
