Principal's Message

Dear NFM@C Families,

I'd like to thank all the parents who met me today for Coffee with the Principal. Thank you for your time. The next Coffee with the Principal which will be in Hotchkiss at Coal Train Coffee House around 7:45 AM on Friday, May 13th.

Please encourage your children to read over break. Our annual fundraiser the READ - A - THON is due on May 2nd. The money earned will pay for our End of the Year Field Trip transportation costs.

We have completed our CMAS testing and we are so proud of the effort and attitudes of the students. Thank you to parents who sent in snacks for the past three weeks.

The last weeks of school are always a fun and busy time of the year. Please check our school website with all upcoming important dates.

Happy Spring Break! Have a wonderful relaxing time with your family.

Spring ART show!

The Annual Student Spring Show at the Creamery Arts Center is coming up and Shannon needs some volunteers to help prepare the artwork. We host this student show along with the North Fork High School every spring. After school on Monday, May 2nd Shannon could use help with matting and labeling. On Tuesday, May 2 (time to be determined) she could use help hanging the show at the Creamery Arts Center. Finally, on Friday, May 6th there will be an opening reception and we need donations of seltzer water, fruit juice, and paper cups to make a punch for the event. Please email Shannon if you are available to help with any of these show preparations. **See flyer on our website for event details.

You can still order a Yearbook. The yearbook was organized by the YEARBOOK STAFF (appointed 5th and 6th graders) with our advisor JACK BAIR. You can pay with a check or cash. A yearbook costs $20.00. Thank you for your support!

Montessori Moment

Over the coming weeks you are going to get to see what different Montessori quotes mean to our students. First, second and third graders worked in self selected groups. First they chose a Montessori quote then they created a collage reflecting their understanding of the quote.

Big picture

How do you balance responsibility and independence in your family life?

What happens if we lean too far towards responsibility or too far towards independence?

Ask your children what they think this quote means and how they would illustrate it.
