Sunnyside Elementary Parent Advisory Council


Surrey Montessori Society (SMS) is a BC-registered, not-for-profit association that supports the publicly-funded Montessori programs of Surrey, helping purchase much needed Montessori material, and to help cover fees for professional development workshops for the teachers.


It consists of parents, educators and supporters who believe in the teaching method and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. The SMS also liaises with the Surrey School District and the Montessori communities throughout BC.


Our efforts are 100% voluntary and we hold several fundraisers throughout the school year. We run a series of small Kernels popcorn fundraisers throughout the year, and in November, we always launch a Purdys Chocolate fundraiser which arrives in time for Christmas, but our most popular fundraiser is an Annual Adult Social. This year's Social will be at The Bennett Craft & Kitchen (187 176 Street) on Saturday, April 28, 2018.


A big thank you to all the parents and teachers for helping organize these events, and to all the local businesses who supported us with gift baskets, gift cards and gift certificates for our silent auctions.
