A Note From the Principal
Get Ready... Get Pumped.... Wear Orange and Blue on Monday!
Get ready to kickstart an incredible journey of leadership and fitness at our upcoming pep assembly on Monday! 🎉
Monday marks the beginning of our primary school fundraising event, and it promises to be an exhilarating two weeks of learning and adventure for our students and staff. We're thrilled to partner with Apex Leadership Company to bring you this fantastic 2-week interactive leadership program and fitness-focused fundraiser. It's an opportunity for our students to unlock the true potential of leadership skills while raising funds to enrich our Montessori learning experiences.
What's exciting is that every student will actively participate in both the leadership program and the fitness event, irrespective of their financial involvement in the fundraiser. Our Apex program is scheduled to run from September 11, 2023, to September 21, 2023.
The pep assembly on Monday will be the grand kickoff event where students will meet our enthusiastic coaches and get motivated for the exciting program ahead. At the assembly, we will distribute VIP Pledge Badges and provide detailed information on how to get started.
Don't miss out on any updates during these action-packed two weeks! Be sure to check your messages daily, and take a moment to read our POWER newsletter attached below for additional information.
Let's embark on this journey together as we empower our young leaders and support our school's educational endeavors. Get ready to witness the magic of leadership and fitness in action!

Apex Power is "Empowering Students"
We are thrilled to share the exciting news that we will host another Fun Run fundraiser this school year! The enthusiasm and support we've received from our students, parents, and staff have been remarkable, and we are deeply grateful for your continued involvement in our Montessori journey.
The Fun Run has proven to be more than just a fundraising event; it has become an integral part of our school's fabric. The resources generated from past Fun Run has allowed us to extend and enrich the Montessori learning experience for our students and staff. Your dedication and generous contributions have created an environment where curiosity, exploration, and growth flourish.
We're excited to share that we've partnered again with Apex, the company that helped make our previous Fun Run a resounding success. Apex's innovative approach aligns with our Montessori values and provides a structured framework for integrating peace education components into the event. With their support, we're confident that this year's Fun Run will raise much-needed funds and foster a sense of unity and purpose within our school community.
As we embark on this new Fun Run journey, we look forward to the joy, camaraderie, and positive impact this event will undoubtedly bring. Thank you for your commitment to Messmore and for being champions of our Montessori philosophy. Together, we'll continue to create an inspiring and nurturing learning environment for our students.
Lunch/Recess Supervisors Needed!
Are you interested in seeing whether or not your child is eating their lunch? Are you curious as to who your child's friends are? Do you like to help? Then this may be the job for you!
We are in need of lunchroom and lunch recess supervisors. This can be a paid position, if you're interested. Or it can be just on a volunteer basis. If you are interested in getting paid for your time as a lunchroom and lunch recess supervisor, then please see the attached information below regarding EduStaff and follow those directions. If you are interested in just volunteering, all I would need is a Criminal History Check Form filled out and submitted, if you have not already done so.
If you are interested in beginning the process, please reach out to Sarah in the main office (Sarah.Szadek@uticak12.org). We really need help on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
