The focus of our fundraising effort this school year is to fund significant curriculum enhancements for our children. We will invest in a reading curriculum – Orton-Gillingham.
The Orton-Gillingham approach is an intensive, sequential phonics-based system that teaches the basics of word formation before whole meanings. The method accommodates and utilizes the three learning modalities, or pathways, through which people learn—visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Unlike some scripted and rigid reading programs, the Orton-Gillingham Approach is a system that allows for flexibility based on the individual learning capability of each student.
In addition, the Mustang Fund will continue to provide support for the STEM initiative (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) at Montgomery. We will also continue to support our faculty and staff with professional learning opportunities and updated technology. By investing in our school’s biggest asset, our teachers, we are directly enhancing the education of our children.
In order to fund the curriculum enhancements including training for our faculty and new technology, we have set a fundraising goal of $50,000.
