Evansville Day of the Dead Background:  Montessori will be hosting the community (free) event celebrating the Mexican holiday “Day of the Dead” at Angel Mounds on Saturday, November 3rd —a celebration of loved ones who have passed.  Information will be coming home closer to the date, but mark your calendars!  There will be something for everyone from crafts, workshops, music, food vendors, etc.

Fob Time Change

 – So we can better keep track of who is in the building outside of the regular drop off/pickup times, fobs will not open the east (dining room) front door between the hours of 8:45 and 2:45.  Please use the main front door during those times.

Jackets, sweaters, etc. – Please put your child’s name or initials on the tag.  Our Lost and Found basket in the dining room is already overflowing. 

Calendar Clarification – Montessori will be closed (no daycare) on Monday, December 24th and Tuesday, December 25th. 

All School Play – 

Three years ahead of time, we reserve the same days/week for dress rehearsal and play night at The Victory Theatre.  Three years ago, we did not realize that this year’s play night will fall on Good Friday, April 19th. 

Everyone in the school typically participates in the play.  If your family will not be here due to family or other obligations, please let your teacher know. Costume, dance assignments, etc. are planned with each student participating.  Knowing ahead of time allows us to make adjustments since plans for the play start in late February. We’ll put out this reminder several times in the coming months.
