Our Projects

Some of our community service projects are:

Food drives for the local food bank.

Helping Individuals:

We were pleased to be able to help a homeless man and his service dog. We collected food, water, clothing and pet supplies. We were able to take his service dog for a vet check too. In turn he distributed items to others in his community.

Helping families:

Our families collected clothing, toiletries books and food items for homeless families living in shelters.

Helping at risk youth:

Arletta Montessori families generously donated to at risk and homeless youth in our area. We were able to supply the children and youth with food, warm clothing, school supplies.

Rocks for rescue

Rocks for Rescue

What is Rocks for Rescue?

Rocks for Rescue is a fundraiser that supports the care of rescued animals. Funds are raised by selling children’s hand-painted rocks.

The Story

Rocks for Rescue was introduced to Arletta Montessori by one of its very own students, Rowan. He and his mom would find rocks on their property, choose favorite paint colors at the art store, and settle down for hours at a time creating special garden rocks for friends and family members.

During this same time, Rowan’s family rescued a litter of Great Dane puppies and a homeless German Shepherd mom with her two puppies. Rowan wanted to raise money to help rescued animals, and he and his mom realized that he could use their rock painting hobby to collect donations to go toward the care of rescued animals while raising awareness of animals in need and encouraging children to contribute to a great cause.

Arletta Montessori is thrilled to partake in the Rocks for Rescue fundraising effort!
