The VMS Mary Ellen Kordas Tuition Assistance Fund


“There are only a few things that can last a lifetime and grow in value. Education is one of them.”

-Mary Ellen Kordas, retired Head of School


Dear Friends and Families of VMS,These past years have afforded me the honor of watching children grow and develop a love of learning and a deep appreciation of their community. When students return after high school and college to tell their stories and successes, it only reinforces the richness of the VMS experience.It is my heartfelt wish that financial aid be offered to any family who wishes their child attend VMS and who has a financial challenge. I am touched by the creation of this fund in my name. Now I need your help!

Please consider joining me in contributing to this important fund. If we all unite in this time of particular financial challenges, we can build a fund for the ages. Long ago a fellow Montessorian told me that if you ask in the children’s names it will not be hard. I do ask for the children! Thank you for your consideration in support of tuition assistance for VMS families that truly enriches the entire community.

Mary Ellen
