Virtue for the Month of November: Thankfulness

The Virtue for the month of November being discussed in our Primary and Elementary classrooms is “Thankfulness”. Being thankful is appreciating the things you have and the people you care about.

Please send in virtue vouchers when your child is exhibiting thankfulness at home.

Grandparent/Special Friend day is Wednesday, November 13, 2019. It is a great opportunity for your child to show their school and their “work” to someone very special to them. If family and friends are not close by, parents are welcome to attend as their child’s friend. Please advise your child’s visitor to inform their teacher if they plan to take your child with them when they leave. Grandparents Day is on a Wednesday, so our School Store will be open!

The times are as follows:

Toddler 9:00-10:00 A.M.

Primary: 10:00-12:00 or 1:00-3:00

Elementary 11:00-1:00 (including lunch)

ExtraOrdinary Give

This is an online event.

Montessori Academy will participate in Lancaster County’s Extraordinary Give on Friday, November 22, 2019

Donations can be made all day on-line at the Extraordinary Give Web site. Donations to our school will be used to enhance the Montessori materials in our beautiful classroom environments.


Thanks for your feedback on the CoreLife Lunch Program we began in October. As this is a new program, we're growing and adapting from your suggestions and working closely with CoreLife to ensure the program is running well.

We have a revised menu with options available on our website to order one month at a time. This will make it easier for us to adapt as we learn how the program is doing.

The meals are $4.00 a day but we are only offering the option of ordering for the month. Each day has several options for you to choose. The options will be for the whole month (i.e. every Monday you receive the option you pick; every Tuesday the option you choose etc). This is not a fund raiser for the school. It is something we hope will make your child's school experience more complete.

Your invoice will be coming from the school business office but the money is then sent directly to CoreLife. Feel free to reach out to Ann Sambroski ( in the business office with any questions or concerns.
