2022-2023 Coulee Montessori Community Events

We are looking forward to being “back in action” this school year. The year will start with our school’s ONE big fundraiser of the year. After two years of limited ways to raise funds, we are excited to be in a position to better financially support the needs of our schools for things like field trips and classroom materials. The Fundraising Committee is putting together a great fundraiser AND social event at Grandad Bluff in October. They would LOVE more help! Email to find out more or to let them know you’re interested.


Follow our Facebook Page to get up to date info about this year’s events as details are finalized!


Friday, October 21st from 5:30-7:30pm – The first annual Coulee Montessori Family Fun Hike will take place in the Gateway Trails on Grandad’s Bluff!
We look forward to hiking, bonfires, s’mores, hot cocoa, and a great chance to spend time with our Coulee Montessori community!
