Please Give to Trinity’s Annual Campaign. Here’s Why:
♥ We are so happy to be with our students! Trinity Montessori is proud to be one of the few schools in our area offering families five days of in-school instruction along with after-school care. This is an incredible accomplishment that requires strategic and costly measures, along with your continued support!
♥ Let us share some background. The Annual Campaign was started to help keep our tuition affordable. Trinity’s tuition is lower than most local private schools as the annual campaign allows for parents, friends and the community to donate funds to our school. Trinity’s fiscal year starts in July. Because of the pandemic, we lost a large amount of revenue over the summer as we were unable to offer our Little Wonders or World Wonder Programs. Our popular and profitable Enrichment Program, a series of Wednesday workshops for students taught by Rochester professionals, was also canceled as we had to limit the number of people entering the school to keep our students safe and healthy. Our classrooms and community spaces have been re-imagined to maintain social distancing. This includes limiting the number of students who may attend Trinity this year. 15-16 students are in each class to bring opportunity for social and emotional wellness as well as academic achievement. (While this school year was to have been Trinity’s largest enrollment in our 53-year history, we know with your support, our future remains so promising)!
♥ We are doing all we can to deal with the loss of revenue while working to cover the high cost of safely staying with our students in school. We installed an upgraded ventilation system and purchased the new Sani Spray disinfecting system. Each desk and seating area includes a sanitary partition to protect each other from sneezes and coughs. Hand sanitizer, masks, paper towels, Lysol, are in constant supply. These additional and costly expenses have impacted our fiscal realities but are necessary to ensure a healthy and safe environment.
♥ We remain the largest, private Montessori School in Western and Central New York. Even now, our students continue to receive weekly remote lessons in Spanish, music, computers and physical education.
