The Montessori School of Champaign-Urbana needs support to continue its nearly 55 year mission to educate the children in our community. Join us this May for #MSCUtogether!

For the month of May 2020, we invite you to help us celebrate the students, families, teachers, and staff who make up our very special MSCU Community. The MSCU Together Campaign is meant to honor our entire school community, but especially our children and teachers as they have continued to thrive despite the disruptions and challenges they have faced.

We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate you! Together is what keeps us strong – Together, we are MSCU!

Thank you for your support!

MSCU Together Run Fundraiser


Hey MSCU friends and families! The Together Run is just around the corner.  How is your family getting ready for this year’s Together Run?

Participating in the Together Run is easy! Here’s all you have to do:

    1. Pick a distance/route your family would like to run around the neighborhood.
    2. (Optional) Ask people to sponsor you for the run if you’d like to help fundraise for the school. You can decide however you’d like to set up the sponsoring — by distance run, or just by whatever people would like to donate to support you and the school. Let them know they can donate via the button below at
    3. Do a family run on May 30, at whatever time works for your family. Wear your MSCU Together T-shirts to show some MSCU pride!
    4. Be sure to take lots of photos/videos and send them to!
For a peek at how other MSCU families are getting ready for the Together Run, check out our Facebook page at We can’t wait to see our families running this Saturday! #MSCUtogether

“Front Steps” Photos Fundraiser

Photo: Della Perrone#dellaperronephotography


Montessori School of CU is joining forces with local photographer Della Perrone to offer FRONT STEPS PHOTOS to our MSCU families!

It’s easy-peasy! Here is how it works:

  1. Email Kerry Rossow at to schedule an appointment.
  2. Gather your house/family/sheltered in place crew on the front steps of your home and Della will take a few photos from a distance (about a 5 minute or less photo shoot).
  3. You download the file(s) free of charge. If you are able, a donation to MSCU is much appreciated.

Note: Safety is absolutely foremost for this project. Della will be no closer than 12 feet to your group and, sometimes, she is able to take this from across the street. She will wear a mask and is literally in one location for no more than 5 minutes (sometimes less than that), but we will make sure you get lovely photos.
