  • Make a donation to the Abigail Tandy Mae Stout Memorial Scholarship Fund: On January 7, 2006 one of the students attending Gardenview Montessori was fatally injured in a tragic accident. She was a bright, beautiful, amazing 5 ¾ year old girl. She had more enthusiasm for life in her few short years than most of us will know in our entire life. She will be greatly missed by everyone who had the fortune of having her in their life.
    We have set up a scholarship fund in her memory at Gardenview Montessori. The funds raised so far have enabled us to offer several partial scholarships to some very deserving children. We hope to be able to offer more partial scholarships as well as a couple of full scholarships each year but can only do so with generous donations from you. Please make a donation in memory of Abi to support scholarships at Gardenview Montessori School.
