Vintage and Diamonds — December 10th, 2016

Celebrate the season with Telluride Mountain School! This year we have combined our holiday party and annual fundraiser into one exciting event. The holiday Gala, Vintage and Diamonds will be a wonderful evening event held at the newly renovated Sheridan Opera House.  We will have live music, terrific food, cocktails and auctions to benefit the scholarship funds of Mountain School and Montessori.

Tickets can be purchased at the school or contact Stephanie Griebe at 970-728-1969 or via email at


Annual Giving

Contributions to the annual fund help bridge the gap between income from tuition and fees and the actual cost of a M@MS and TMS education. As with all independent schools, this tax-deductible support enables TMS to offer our students’ individualized attention, arts, music and language. In addition, we can continue to attract teachers with outstanding credentials (including certified Montessori teachers) and offer financial aid.

Our 2016/2017 annual fund goal is $407,000. Every participation gift to the annual fund provides vital resources for the education and development of students Pre-K through 12th grade.

Each fall Telluride Mountain School students sell raffle tickets for a ski pass to raise funds for their experiential trips. The raffle will take place on Monday, November 7th at 8:30 a.m. in the great room.



Goods that directly support programs, such as academics, technology, the arts, and outdoor education, are welcomed and appreciated in addition to monetary gifts. Examples of these items include, books, computer equipment, cameras, art supplies and sports/outdoor gear.
