On October 12th, 2013, our school hosted its Third Annual Crucian Breakfast. This fundraiser benefited our financial aid program, which will allow more children the gift of a Montessori education. The Crucian Breakfast was held at Cafe Fresco and it was certainly a success raising over $1300. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was delightful giving opportunities for families to mingle and children to play. The participation, support, contributions and generous gifts from our Montessori family and charitable community members helped to provide the financial and moral support needed to accomplish our goal. The St. Croix Montessori Fundraising Committee would also like to express their deepest thanks to the Montessori Families that sold tickets, volunteered, and provided monetary donations or contributed food and other items for the Crucian Breakfast. See our Crucian Breakfast 2013 pictures here.
