Giving Tuesday! CMS partners with Covenant House of Charleston and creates the warmest tree in Charleston during the first week of December, adorned with hats, mittens, gloves and scarves to keep children in our community warm throughout the winter. 

Join us for the annual West Side Main Street Tree Lighting ceremony on December 8 at 6 p.m. There will be music, hot chocolate and cookies to celebrate the holiday season. The tree is located in next to Fountain Hobby on West Washington Street.

Our annual campaign, the CMS Friends Fund, allows Charleston Montessori to expand its scholarship program and bring enhancements to the classrooms and school community. We have Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) tax credits available; call CMS at 304-340-9000 for more information.
