Weekly Update: 5/9/17

This is Teacher Appreciation Week – thank you for sharing a note of thanks to our Instructional Staff!

‘Now, what really makes a teacher is love for the human child; for it is love that transforms the social duty of the educator into the higher consciousness of a mission.’

-Maria Montessori

All-School Meeting Tomorrow!

Our last All-School meeting of the 2017 school year takes place tomorrow evening @ 6:00 in the Blue Tang classroom.  As a reminder, families must attend two of the three All-School meetings in a school year to maintain compliance with the Contract of Commitment; families who have attended only one meeting are required to attend tomorrow’s meeting. Those families who attend all three meetings will earn an extra service hour point!

*Families who are unable to attend an All-School meeting must notify Mrs. Lynn in writing: [email protected]

Lottery this Friday

The lottery to determine enrollment for the 2018 school year takes place @ 4:15 this Friday in the Blue Tang classroom.  As a reminder, families of currently enrolled students who have not fulfilled the three components of the Contract of Commitment (service hours, parent meetings, all-school meetings) will have their child’s name placed in the lottery.

Books & Books Community Day & Book Fair

This Saturday our local (awesome) bookstore will host a Community Book Fair to benefit May Sands Montessori School! The advertisement below will run Thursday & Friday and our school will reap a percentage for every clipped ad that accompanies a sale! Share the attached coupons with your friends, and let your neighbors know about the advertisement in the paper this week – we’re hoping to have a super-successful in-store book fair!  Our in-school Books & Books fair dates are May 15th  through the 26th and titles from teacher summer reading lists will be available for purchase.  We also have a couple of incentives to share with our community, thanks to our helpful students, see below!
