Giving

As parents, we want our children to help willingly, to be kind to others, and to be unselfish in sharing their things. MIR asks parents to model that same spirit by

  • Assisting in the classroom
  • Volunteering as a PTM room representative
  • Supporting PTM and student events and fundraising as appropriate
  • Donating to the MIR Fund

Donations to MIR are used for:

  • Student financial assistance
  • Faculty training and development
  • Improvements to the campus

Fundraising at MIR

MIR was founded on a legacy of generosity, and sustained by the gifts of time, talent, and resources of generations of families and community members.

In 1976, Leon and Margie Armantrout, along with a handful of other parents, had a vision to create a Montessori school in Redlands. They raised $10,000 to finance the first classroom by selling a treasured classic car and through a donation from Margie's aunt. Since then, countless families, friends, and community members have continued that legacy to ensure the quality and viability of the school for generations.
