There Has Never Been a More Extraordinary Time to Celebrate South Suburban Montessori School

Dear SSMS Supporter,

What an extraordinary year it has been! Amidst the uncertainty, apprehension, and adversity, our school community has come together to forge a path forward.

We are proud to announce that this year also marks an amazing milestone in our School’s history: South Suburban Montessori School’s 50th Anniversary.  Since 1970, our School has provided an authentic Montessori education; an education that celebrates and values compassion, honesty, personal and social responsibility, and kindness. While we have recently re-imagined our classrooms, our curriculum, our schedules, and our way of being together, our essence, culture, and purpose remain fully intact. South Suburban’s mission and values continue to be at the center of all we do.

Now more than ever, we are so thankful for the families and friends who have supported, funded, volunteered, celebrated, and advocated for South Suburban over the past 50 years. At a time when everything feels unknown, we find comfort and certitude knowing that you continue to care about and support our School. It is with this knowledge that we eagerly launch our 2020-20210 Annual Appeal, “There Has Never Been a More Extraordinary Time to Celebrate SSMS”.

In love and peace,

Amy Mackie-Barr
SSMS Head of School
