Pajama Day - Tomorrow

The read-a-thin is an annual event at the Montessori School. Students may collect pledges for the number of pages or number of books they read. All funds raised go to school operations. This is one of the most popular events during the school year. The children love it!

Each class will set a goal for the total number of pages to be read. Classes that meet their goal will have a small class treat at the end of the read-a-thon. If your child is not yet a reader, you may read to him/her as part of their page count.

More information will be sent home after the winter break.

Tuition Due January 1

Just a reminder that tuition is still due on January 1 even though school will be closed. It will be late after January 5. You are welcome to mail your payment as we will check the mail each day.
