Hello parents,

It's full swing ahead at Lake Air Montessori with March madness! Each class will be choosing a college to research and represent during the NCAA basketball tournament.

No school Friday, April 3rd. We WILL be having school Monday, April 6th.

Tutoring: 1st and 2nd graders are spending 45 minutes a day working on specific skills in their individualized grades.

STAAR camp: 3rd graders will be going to STAAR camp for 2 weeks beginning April 6 - April 17th.

Pasta for Pennies: We will be collecting donations for leukemia and lymphoma society. The last day to give your spare change THIS FRIDAY! The class that wins gets a pasta party!
