Family Picnic - "Blue Skies" Annual Spring Fair

We are now only days away from our very exciting Family Picnic.

Jessie Sproles, the PLG, KM Staff and the Rooms Parents have been working very hard to create an entertaining and memorable event for us all.

The picnic will be free, but there will be items to buy and beautiful class art projects to bid on, in a silent auction.

You will need:

  • A picnic for your family
  • Shade (pop-up tents are good)
  • Seating or a blanket

Don't worry, there are still some jobs to do if you want to help with this event:

  • Volunteering on the day
  • Making crafts (profits go towards school fund)
  • Making Homemade Baked Goods (profits go towards school fund)

If you want to help with this event please text Jessie Sproles on 281-381-4968.

Enrollment for the 2016-2017 School Year

Enrollment for next year has gone very well and we are almost at capacity for four of our classrooms, including lower elementary. We understand that some families are waiting to make their decision, but we want to inform you that you may be on a waiting list if the last places are filled within the next few days.

As you reflect on your child and his or her year at Kingwood Montessori, what differences do you see?

  • Is she calmer?
  • Is he more passionate about work?
  • Is she excited to come to school?
  • Is he kinder to his friends?
  • Is she more helpful at home?

We don't put positive qualities into children, we work quietly to bring them out.

Children learn naturally, they are kind, they love nature and order, we just give them the tools to reveal these innate gifts.
