A Note from our Head of School
We carry this same philosophy into the classrooms at Holy Trinity Montessori. Unlike some traditional classroom settings, you will not find lots of decorations, lights, or holiday items here. While we love those things and certainly encourage them outside of school, we choose to preserve the normal classroom environments during this season so that our young friends can work with as few distractions and disruptions as possible. We also emphasize the beauty of giving and encourage our friends to focus on blessing the people around them. Of course, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate the season at school with crafts, books, activities, and even a visit from Saint Nicholas!
As we all look forward to another great Christmas season, I hope that you'll experience in your own heart the things that we value most at HTM: Peace, Knowledge, and Faith. Have a very Merry Christmas! -- Kate Riley

Wrap It Up!
If you want to sign up, please send a check for $20 in your child's mailbag and write "Gift Wrapping" in the memo. Then plan to drop off your boxed/packaged items in a regular laundry basket with a numbered list that tells us each gift, the recipient, and the giver on Wednesday, December 17. Gifts will be wrapped and ready to go by 11am on Friday, December 19.
