Montessori Philosophy, Fundraising and Community

A little history, Maria Montessori first opened her Children’s House in the slums of Rome to serve impoverished children who had been left wandering the streets while their parents worked. Montessori schools have been held in churches, villages and even refugee camps. Dr. Montessori has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and the Montessori Philosophy has been embraced by world leaders, teachers and parents who are dedicated to bringing a holistic approach to children’s well being for over 100 years. In many western countries Montessori education has become an option only for those who can afford tuition prices that even exceed $15,000.00 ... Read more

Seasonal Reminders

by Maple Tree

The snowflakes and the tempatures are falling and winter is on the way! A good time it seems for a few seasonal reminders. We will still be going outside on a daily basis unless the wind chill is below 20 or it is raining, please send clearly labeled winter clothing for your child. Snow pants, boots, mittens and hats should be all marked with your child’s name and these items may be left in a bag at school instead of transported daily. Also, many students wear slippers during the winter months. The slippers should be non-distracting, labeled and can also be left at school. ... Read more

Morning Drop Off

by Maple Tree

Thank you Tricia, for sending a reminder to our parents about A.M. drop off. I do regret that in my excitement over all our new programs for 2008, I did not cover this well at Parent Night. I thought it was included in our August Newsletter, but I was mistaken, it was in September’s. Many of you may remember this drop off process from past years, it has worked very well. When you pull in to drop off, pull up as far as you can. Along the fence and in the north parking spaces, form 2 lines. Then blend into one ... Read more

If you have not responded and are interested we encourage you to respond as soon as possible. We will be tallying up the expected price and class size for the group lessons, time needed for individual lessons and the number of instruments that need to be purchased for students. Our plan is to make equipment available for lease to students and for this we need to have a pretty close count of the number of interested ... Read more
