The Aquinas Montessori and Old Town Montessori Schools collect supplies and money to aide Montessori schools in need. In 2006, supplies and money were sent to a primary school in Tijuana, Mexico, and a school in Queensland, Australia for elementary children and older. In 2005, our teachers donated used teaching materials to students in Kenya, Africa.
