Is my donation tax deductible?

YES! Any donation (items or monetary) are tax deductible. If you make an online donation through the 'Monetary Donations' tab, a receipt will be sent to you once the transaction is complete. If you donate items (prizes, food, etc.) or pay for a donation using cash or check (made out to 'TMES'), please request a receipt from the school.
What are you raising money for?

The funds raised from the Jog-A-Thon are used to pay the salaries for our EAs – Educational Assistants during the 2018-2019 school year. Please help fund our EAs and support our public school students!
Why is there a $10 minimum online donation under the 'Monetary Donations' tab?

TMES is charged processing fees for any online charge. We choose to have a minimum online donation in order to cover those charges. If you would like to make a cash or check (made out to 'TMES') donation, please mail it to:

     The Montessori Elementary School
     1730 Montano Blvd NW
     Albuquerque, NM 87107

We appreciate each and every donation- no matter the amount! Every donation goes towards our 'Educational Assistant Fun' which makes a huge impact on our student's every-day school experience. Thank you for your support!
I would like to join in on the fun with my student! Is that possible?

YES! If you would like to walk/jog/run with your student, please feel free to put on your sneakers and join them during their laps in the Jog-A-Thon. Please feel free to bring smaller siblings in strollers, etc. You are also welcome to support your child and other students from the sideline by cheering them on as they make their way around the school.  Please keep pets at home.
I only have 45 minutes to volunteer. Can I still help?

YES! We can use all the help we can get. There are many ways to lend a hand in the success of the Jog-A-Thon and volunteers play a vital role in that. No matter if you can spend the entire day with us, or just your lunch break, we welcome you to join us by cheering on students, marking laps as they run by, cutting up oranges, tallying laps and pledges, filling up cups of water, and much more!
Is The Montessori Elementary School (TMES) and The Montessori Middle School (TMMS) a public school?

YES! We are a public, charter school. We encourage you to read more about our fantastic program under the 'About TMES' tab.
