Spring Cleanup Day was a success this past Saturday!  Thank you:  Adam, Brian/Liam, Kerry, Kam, Zeljko, Glen, Micha/Silas and Christina.  We couldn’t have done it without your help!!

HELP—We are having a problem with coats, jackets, etc. not having names in them and several jackets are identical or very, very similar.  PLEASE put initials or names in your child’s coat.  It’s the only way we have of getting them back to the right owner. 

If your child owns a navy blue coat with gold stars, please contact the office.  We have had a mix up with one of these four identical coats.  Thanks!

School Play Ticket Sales start on Tuesday, April 2, 2019:

·Yes, a line does start forming outside the building well before 7:00 AM. But, we do not run out of seats.

·Seats must be bought in advance. It is reserved seating a on a “first come, first serve” basis.  The cost is $6 on the lower level and $10 for the balcony.

·We will have a chart of where your child will be standing on the stage to help you choose the seat that is right for your family.

·Tickets may only be purchased for your family members (and your guests). If you are buying for another Montessori family, you will need to complete your purchase and then get back in line to complete the second purchase for another family.

·If a child cannot sit comfortably on your lap for two hours, they will need their own seat/ticket. The play is geared for elementary age children and up.

·We do not recommend bringing infants or toddlers due to the confines of the seating, the difficulty getting in/out and the length of the program. We record the program for later DVD sales.  Crying children are difficult to record over.

·If you need wheelchair access, please let Diane, Kristi or Audrey know before Tuesday, April 3rd.
