Open House – If you know anyone interested in sending their child to Montessori and they would like to find out more, we are having our annual Open House this Saturday, January 25th from 11:00 to 1:00.  Coming to the Open House takes the place of scheduling an observation for parents wanting to start a child in our program.  This event is for families who have never had a child enrolled at our school.

Valentine Cards Guidelines/Reminder – We’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Friday, February 14th.

  • Mr. R’s class has a different set of guidelines.  Please check his blog for details.
  • If the cards come with a sticker or tattoo that is fine, but please do not send any type of candy or additional items for the class. 
  • A card needs to be sent for each student in the class.

(Ms. April 24; Ms. Lori 26; Mrs. Corn 24; Ms. Sarah 25; Mrs. Theriac 25)

  • Your  child’s name should be written in the “From” place, but do not address them to individual students. 
  • Feel free to send in cards early and leave them in your child’s cubby in a gallon zip-loc bag.
