Montessori Matters

Don't Forget...

  • Reserve your child's spot in MSA's I/T and Primary Summer Camp. Your child can come for the whole summer or choose by the week to accommodate summer schedules. We are also offering an Elementary Summer Enrichment Program. Each week will have a different focus from cooking to space to technology to nature…and more! Come be a part of the MSA summer fun! Register before May 1 to reserve your spot.

  • The FACTS Tuition Assistance portal for 2022-2023 is open for returning families through May 1. Only new families will be able to apply after this date. To apply, go to and use your login and password that you set up for this year's tuition payment plan. The link for the application will be on the "Grant & Aid" tab.

  • We need YOU! Due to Covid-19, It’s been two years since we have had a school-wide event and we have all missed getting together as a community. If you have been patiently waiting to get involved again, this is your chance! We need volunteers to help with a “Spring Fling.” It will be a family affair. Please contact Jennifer Cline at

Have a great week,

Dr. Dana Hill

Upper Elementary Ukuleles

The Upper Elementary class was able to purchase ukuleles for on-campus student use with an option to rent the instruments for at-home use. The students were very excited to begin learning how to hold and play the instruments this week! They recorded tutorial videos for their families on Seesaw; see below for a video of two of the students working on their recording earlier this week and another finished video ukulele tutorial.

Tote Bags

The Upper Elementary students have been working on crafting personalized tote bags during Fiber Arts class with Ms. Ponder. They have had the opportunity to use the sewing machine as part of the project.

Nutrition Labels

In Mrs. Patch's PE classes this week, students have been learning how to read and what to look for on nutrition labels. Students in Lower Elementary were able to see just how much sugar is in a variety of drinks! The Primary students got a tour of the greenhouse to check out how they can grow their own healthy foods.
