News from Holy Trinity Montessori: March 2014

Here's What's Happening...

A Million Doors Campaign

We recently revised and updated our Million Doors video to reflect our growth, goals, and continued dreams for Holy Trinity Montessori. As you may know, our school continues to grow despite the fact that we are almost at our maximum capacity in our current facilities. We recognize that our needs regarding our potential growth may exceed our space limitations, which is why we are on a mission to raise funds for expansion and/or land purchase.

This short video gives insight into who we are, why we exist, and why we believe so strongly in the mission and values of our school. It also highlights the opportunity that lies before us all: to invest in the future of every single child who passes through our doors.

Our hope is that you will share it with anyone and everyone who may be interested and able to help, and that you will continue to partner with us in prayer to see this dream come to fruition. Thank you for your commitment to our cause!

Our Teachers Never Stop Learning!

While our families enjoy our upcoming Spring Break, our dedicated HTM teachers will once again be heading to the American Montessori Society's (AMS) Annual Conference, taking place in Dallas this year. This conference is a virtual gold mine for ideas, strategies, plans, and more and always serves as an incredibly motivating experience for our teachers. With many fantastic keynote addresses as well as a variety of specific workshops, the hands-on training offered here is a valuable resource to our school. The conference theme is "Unity in Diversity," reflecting Dr. Maria Montessori's belief that “The needs of mankind are universal,” and “Our means of meeting them create the richness and diversity of the planet.”

We are proud to send our teachers to this amazing event and are excited to see how they will each be impacted and inspired by their experiences.

Upcoming Events

Discovery Night

Be sure to join us at HTM on Thursday night, March 6, for our Discovery Night! This informative night is designed for parents, grandparents, and caregivers to discover more about what your children are learning at HTM. This time, we'll be focusing on The Great Lessons, which are taught in our Lower Elementary community. Be on the lookout for a separate flyer that will explain more about this night, but be SURE you make plans to attend--regardless of your child's age or current classroom community, this is an opportunity you won't want to miss!

HTM Presents: Pop-Up Supper Club

Hire a babysitter and invite all of your friends...you will NOT want to miss this very special event, happening May 2 at HTM! Join us for an evening of casual dining and entertainment, featuring Hors D'ouvres, Specialty Cocktails, and a 4-Course Regional Farm-to-Table Dinner, along with giveaways and a few other surprises. Seating will be limited and reservations will be required, so make plans now to purchase your tickets (a steal at $50/person--or buy the table!) when they become available.

Friends Festival

Every year, our young friends invite their Grandparents and other Special Friends to join them for a great morning at school. This year, on May 9, we're adding another layer of FUN to this wonderful tradition by introducing our Friends Festival!
