Concord Montessori School is launching new fundraiser in December 2019: Joyful Giving, an Online Silent Auction. (For returning families, this replaces our silent auction at the Sweetheart Dance.) For more details on our fundraising and programs, visit Support CMS.
Joyful Giving will go live on December 1 (perfect for surfing from the comfort of your home after the long Thanksgiving weekend) and will conclude at 11:59pm on Sunday, December 8.
Bidders can get a head start (or finish up!) some holiday shopping. It’s a chance to find something special for someone special, all while supporting a great cause!
By hosting our auction online over the course of one week, we hope to increase the number of participants, both within our school community as well as alumni, friends, and family. Our team of volunteers has reached out to more than 200 different vendors from Concord and Greater Boston, so we think every bidder will find something to their taste.
Joyful Giving is a perfect chance to find gift cards to your favourite restaurants and shops, summer camps, classes for kids and adults, experiences, memberships to sport clubs, museum tickets, CSAs, birthday parties, private donations from our dedicated CMS Staff & Teaching Team and our generous families, and much more. Highlights include:
Police Cruiser Ride to School
Win the chance to experience a one-of-a-kind morning when the Concord Police will give your little one a ride to school. Bring a sibling or stop to pick up a friend to share this exciting trip. Don’t forget to take a closer look inside the car and ask the officers questions! (Parents follow behind the cruiser to meet at school.)
Birthday Party at Concord Fire Station
A Firehouse Birthday Party is a unique way to celebrate your child’s birthday! Real firefighters will host your tour of the Concord Fire Station on Walden Street. You will get an inside and up-close look at the station, fire trucks, and various equipment. Afterwards, enjoy cake and pizza at the station like a real firefighter! And don’t forget your party favours: a goody bag with a badge, pencil, firefighters’ fun sheets, and a fire hat.
Lunch/Afternoon Tea with Mrs. Topol at Club Car Café (for Current CMS Families)
Meet Mrs. Topol for lunch or afternoon tea at Club Car Café , the cutest café in town, located in the old train station in West Concord. The café is famous for its cozy location and the functioning model railroad along the top of the room. Your child can bring a friend to share this exciting outing, too.

Together with your child, you will explore the wisdom, strength, and humility of martial arts with everyone’s favorite Maple Tree’s lead teacher, Mr. Murray.
