20th Anniversary Celebration


Saturday, May 20, 2017


West End Montessori School began in 1997 at St Andrew’s United Methodist Church with fifteen children, and our first certified Montessori teacher, Castle O’Neil. Our school continued to grow with the help of many of the teachers who are still a part of today’s WEMS community.

Over the years our community has touched the lives of many families and it is my plan to continue to do so for at least another 20 years!

There are so many to thank for the success of our school. First, I thank God for the many blessings our school has received throughout the years. I thank my family and the entire WEMS family for their support.

It was awesome to see so many WEMS families, both former and present, at our 20th Anniversary Celebration! We had beautiful weather and a fun time at the petting zoo, playing games and eating some delicious food.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone who made our 20th Anniversary Celebration a huge success!

Thank you to everyone who attended! We will donate $600. 00 from our admission fees!

Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make our WEMS grounds beautiful!

Thank you to the Lead Teachers for planning and coordinating the celebration and as always, working as a team to get the job done!

Thank you to the parents who helped with everything from organizing the many photos from the last 20 years, to baking cakes for the Cake Walk.

Thank you to the parents and the teachers and their families for volunteering to run the games and sell food.

Thank you to the Room Parents for coordinating the Silent Auction donations. We raised $450.00!

Thank you to the Dan Schutt Band for volunteering their time and making our celebration so much fun! Click here for more information about the Dan Schutt Band - www.danschuttband.com

Thanks to your generosity, we will send a donation of $1050.00 to Kidz Kupboard! That is WEMS. Helping others and having fun doing it! What a great way to celebrate 20 years.
