|About||Friends of Tobin School, Inc. (FoT) was established in June 2011 by parents of the John M. Tobin Montessori School, the pre-K–5 Cambridge Public School located in Huron Village, to support non-partisan education activities as well as to build and sustain a strong community spirit for students and families.|
Teachers and staff of Tobin Montessori access available funds through a simple teacher grant application for curriculum-related projects, excursions and purchases that are outside of the Cambridge Public School budget.
Sample of the teacher grants awarded in spring 2012:
*Educational excursions to the Museum of Science (Lower Elementary,
gr. 1-3), Drumlin Farm (Sheltered English Kindergarten), Charles River Boat Tour (gr. 3 & 4), George’s Island (gr. 5 & 6)
*A visit by Curious Creatures (Children’s House, 3 y.o.–Kindergarten)
*Summer books for students’ home libraries
