Virtue for the Month of November: Thankfulness

The Virtue for the month of November being discussed in our Primary and Elementary classrooms is “Thankfulness”. Being thankful is appreciating the things you have and the people you care about.

Please send in virtue vouchers when your child is exhibiting thankfulness at home.

New Lunch Program - We're Making it Even Better!

Thanks to all of you who have been ordering lunches from CoreLife and providing us with valuable feedback about how the convenience of the program is working. As a result, we're trying something a little more flexible for the remainder of NOVEMBER and all of DECEMBER. For these 2 months, you will be able to select from menu items and order DAILY! That's right, daily (but please avoid Wednesdays as we keep that day for Pizza).

How does it work? Click on the link. You will be able to select up to 4 different days to order from the drop-down menu. You can choose whatever meal you like. You can choose to order for 1, 2, 3, or all 4 days in one week, or spread them out over 2, 3 weeks or the month. After you've used all 4 days on the order form, if you decide you still want more, just complete the form again for additional days. You'll need to do this for each child getting lunch.

The orders will remain open throughout the months - so you can order right up until 8 am of the day of the lunch! After 8 am - the forms will be open, but please do not select the current day.

* if you've already placed your order for November and/or December you do not have to re-do it unless you'd prefer the daily flex options. If you select the daily flex option, we will cancel your previous request.

School Store & Elementary Bake Sale

On Grandparents/Special Friend Day, the elementary classes will be hosting a bake sale AND keeping the school store open throughout the morning! This is a great opportunity to get some special treats for yourself, for your friends or family, and support our student fundraisers!

The store stocks items priced from 25 cents to $2.00. We have Montessori T-shirts from previous years for sale for $5.00 and Adult sizes for $7.00. Please bring cash to make your purchases.

Grandparent/Special Friend day is Wednesday, November 13, 2019. It is a great opportunity for your child to show their school and their “work” to someone very special to them. If family and friends are not close by, parents are welcome to attend as their child’s friend. Please advise your child’s visitor to inform their teacher if they plan to take your child with them when they leave. Grandparents Day is on a Wednesday, so our School Store will be open!

Don't forget to save the date for the Winter Program rehearsal and performances in December:

Toddlers will have their sing-along on Tuesday, 12/17. Due to limited space this year, we ask that only immediate family join us. We appreciate your understanding!

Primary and Elementary students will rehearse on Wednesday, 12/18 at the Junction Center from 4:30 until around 5:30. AFTERCARE WILL CLOSE AT 4:15 PM that day, so please be sure to pick your children up promptly and report to the Junction Center.

The Performance will begin on Thursday, 12/19 at 6 PM. Teachers will give you specific drop off instructions and times as we approach the performance date. We ask that ALL parents please drop off your child and leave the "staging" area to help us maximize the use of the space (it gets hectic with extra visitors.) You will want to be sure to get your seats quickly as the space will fill up fast!

We look forward to seeing you there!
