Bridge Ceremony -
A long-held Montessori tradition that we are excited to implement is the Bridge Ceremony. Current kindergarten and third-grade students will walk across a bridge symbolizing their transition into the next environment. They will be welcomed by the students from that class. It is a moving and exciting experience for the children and parents.
Talent Show -
Following the Bridge Ceremony, is our 2nd Annual Montessori School Talent Show! Students need to register with Ms. Hayes no later than Friday, May 13 if they wish to participate. Primary children may be in one performance (individual or group). Elementary children may be in one individual and one group performance, if they choose. Performances are limited to 3 minutes.
We will wrap up the fun and festivities with a school-wide lunch. Tickets are $5/person and are not included in lunch bunch. Tickets for children and adults must be purchased in advance. Order forms will go home as the time approaches.
If you can help plan the event or help the day of, please contact the school office.
