Re-enrollment Forms - Reminder

Don't forget that priority enrollment for current families ends Friday, January 15, 2016. Families that turn in their contracts by Friday, December 18 will be entered into a drawing for $200 off 2015-2016 tuition. Open enrollment begins Monday, January 18, when all spaces not secured by a signed contract become available on a first come, first served basis.

Financial Aid Applications

The link to FAST, our financial aid application system, is live on the school's homepage. In order to be considered for financial aid, you must turn in a completed contract by the priority enrollment deadline of January 15. Financial aid applications will be accepted until 5:00p on Saturday, February 27. The system will then be shut off and no changes may be made to applications.

Keep in mind that all recipients are required to do thirty hours of volunteer work at the school. Hours for current recipients must be current in order to be considered for aid next year. Please contact the school office if you have questions.

Upper Elementary Adventures

Although there are only three weeks until the winter break, Upper Elementary has a jam-packed schedule! In addition to competing in the spelling bee this month, they have three excursions planned. UE parents, please watch your email for a note from Mrs. Fancher with more details.

Pajama Party - Friday, December 18, 1:00p

You are invited to join us for a pajama party on the last day of the semester! Pajama Day is a long (and popular) tradition in our school. This year we thought it would be nice to invite parents to join us. Come at 1:00 for hot cocoa (or coffee) and cookies made by our Upper Elementary students.

Please RSVP to the school office so we know how many to expect. We don't want to run out of cookies. :-) Feel free to wear your pajamas, too!

Nutcracker - December 12 & 13

This year is the 30th Anniversary of Western Arkansas Ballet's "The Nutcracker." It is a beautiful production and this year includes three Montessori students - Anais Gibson, Macy Poole, and Jamison Hayes.
