Sterling Montessori PFA


Welcome to the home of the Sterling Montessori Academy and Charter School Parent Faculty Association (SM PFA).

Welcome (back)! The new school year at Sterling Montessori is about to begin. As you may know (or you will soon learn), our Parent Faculty Association (PFA) is vital to our school’s success. Through the PFA, parents and faculty work (and have fun) together to enrich the lives of our children.

The PFA coordinates volunteers to ensure the success of our social events,fundraisers, staff appreciation, and other activities during the year. We welcome and encourage all members of the Sterling community to join the PFA and volunteer to the level that they feel comfortable. There are many ways to make a difference—let us help you find your niche!  

The first PFA meeting is planned for Wed Aug 19 at 3:45 in the Teacher’s Lounge located in the A-building. Complimentary childcare will be provided for members attending the meetings. Please plan to attend and find out what exciting events the school year will bring.  

Visit us at our booth in front of the main office on Thursday Aug. 6 at 5:00 pm and Friday Aug. 7 from 10:00-4:00. We will be sharing information about all of our volunteer opportunities. You will also learn all about GO Play Save, our single biggest fundraiser of the year. You can buy Sterling Montessori T-shirts.  We will also be collecting PFA membership forms. 

Joining the PFA is easy. Join and pay online at: and pay via paypal. If joining online please be sure to add your full name to the comments section in the paypal payment option so that we can identify who you are. You can also fill out the enclosed form and return your completed application and membership payment to the PFA bin in the main office or in person during open house.  

The Sterling Montessori PFA wishes you a great rest of the summer. We look forward to seeing you on August 6 or at Open House on August 7 or at our first meeting on August 19!
