Did you miss these events?

Parent Orientation

Thank you for attending this important event on September 10, we hope that you have gained valuable insights into our school. If you did not attend and did not receive a packet, please pick one up from the office at your convenience.

Parent Forum - "Montessori Math"

Thank you to all parents who attended our first parent forum of the year, we hope that you found it informative. Montessori has many fascinating aspects to it, please take the opportunity to attend our OPEN HOUSE for students and their parents on October 8, students and teachers will answer any questions that you have.

International Day of Peace

We were excited to share our new peace song "Light a candle for Peace," in the playground on September 21. Thank you to the families who shared this peaceful and beautiful moment with us. The children really enjoyed making the 'Cherry Blossom Tree."

The Silent Journey

Thank you to all who attended our Silent Journey on September 25, 2015; it was a truly magical affair. Our master teachers prepared the environment, placing work and written descriptions on the tables and rugs for you to view in silence as you walked through each room from Toddler to Upper Elementary. It is profoundly important to the teachers that the care of the environment and accuracy of the materials is fully understood. We were very touched that many of you left with tears in your eyes, as you reflected on your own schooling experiences. And thank you for those who asked how to donate to our school, and as we continue to grow.
