North Shoreview is a public Montessori school in San Mateo, California, offering preschool, elementary, and middle-school programs. We are part of the San Mateo-Foster City School District and a member of the American Montessori Society. As a public magnet school, we offer an alternative curriculum designed to meet all California state educational standards.
The Montessori Messenger
Thanks to those who have volunteered to be on the PTA Board and to chair events for our kids and families next year. The PTA still has a few roles to fill:
If you’ve been wanting to help but thinking that somebody else will surely volunteer – it hasn’t happened yet. We need you! If you’re interested in any of these roles, please see the attached letter and email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Last call to report volunteer hours for 2014-15
Thanks to all of our parent and community volunteers for a great year at North Shoreview. We're close to breaking the 14,000-hour mark when reporting closes on June 30. Reporting hours shows the strength of our community, helps maintain the PTA's nonprofit status, and is important in applying for outside funding. If you have any unreported volunteer hours for the past academic year, please log them now at www.nsmontessori.org (or click here for a mobile-friendly form).

We will have a lot of weeding to do around the campus and watering the plants and other jobs to get ready for the new school year. Please RSVP so we will know how many people to expect. Contact: email@example.com
Ice Cream Social Tues., Aug. 11, afternoon/evening
At this first event of the new school year, families will find out their children’s classrooms and be able to catch up with others in the school community. There will be activities and ice cream for the kids, while parents can complete school paperwork, buy NSM t-shirts, learn about volunteer opportunities, join the PTA, socialize, and more! Information will be emailed to families the week before school starts.
