We so appreciate all the families who came to campus in mid-October, following all social distancing protocols, to make our campus look beautiful!  Apple trees were trimmed, gardens were weeded, flowers were planted and we are all so appreciated!  Thank you!

** Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our PFA activities will be limited during the school year.  We will need to be creative as a community in continuing to provide support for our teachers, students and community families.  We are confident that as a community, we can still support each other! We will continue to update this page with planned functions and ideas**

Following is an example of our usual PFA Annual Events:

Open House & Welcome Events New to Sterling?  Be sure to stop by and say hello at our Open House booth or at “Popscicles in the Park”!  We look forward to meeting you!
Giving Tree During the holiday season, we come together as a community and collect donated gifts to share with families in need.
Garden Days Held in the fall and spring, our Garden Days give students and their parents an opportunity to learn about our gardening program and the ecology of a healthy garden. We bring in guest speakers from Triangle area organizations and you have the chance to purchase plants for your home garden as well!
Movie Nights Held in the fall and spring, Movie Nights are an opportunity for the school community to get together outside of school hours and have some fun.
Staff Appreciation Week Help us say thank you to all of the wonderful Sterling Montessori faculty and staff that help our children grow and thrive at school. We also hold a number of appreciation events throughout the year that we welcome parent volunteers to join in.

Other PFA Initiatives

In addition to our events throughout the year, we help out the school with other enrichment activities including:

Room Parenting

Our individual classrooms are integral to the overall school culture!  We know that each classroom is its own, bustling community with its own celebrations and news.  Each classroom is represented in the PFA by a Room Parent that ensures communication is free-flowing.

Cultural Events

Throughout the year we help support Sterling’s cultural education with workshops, guest speakers and performances, and classroom activities highlighting cultures from around the world.

“Painless” Fundraising

From AmazonSmile to Box Tops, we help support creative new ways for the school to raise funds throughout the year. To link your Amazon account to the school, go to and search for “Laura Holland Uzzell Foundation”.

Spirit Wear

Show off your Sterling Montessori pride with car magnets, t-shirts, and more! Proceeds from Sterling goods go toward funding school activities. Spirit Wear is available for sale at PFA events and an online link is coming soon.


The PFA helps support the student-led creation of the yearbook so that we can capture all the excitement of the school year!
