What is the DMS Kids Care Club?

Charity is an ancient word that means to help others for the sake of love. Our belief is that the spirit of charity exists in all of us from the very youngest age. Children are motivated by a natural instinct for charity. Our challenge is to nurture this instinct very early in life. Nurturing this desire to give led to the creation of the Dubuque Montessori Kids Care Club. As a parent community, we are all members. We participate by extending charity into the community through various projects. Click the Kids Care Club link to learn more.

What is Scrip anyway?

One of the most important ways our parent community contributes to our school is through the SCRIP program. Scrip is a certificate you use like cash at participating retailers. Scrip can be used for your everyday purchases like groceries, gas, and dry cleaning, and also makes a great gift. Click the Scrip link to learn more.
