Primary Orientation

In a collaboration between the Montessori Community Committee and our three amazing primary teachers Ms Boulanger, Ms. Hart, and Ms. Lin, we are offering a Primary Orientation on Wednesday, September 5th from 3:10-4 PM.  This is open to any family who has a child in those primary classes (Grades 1, 2, 3) in the Montessori Program.

Unfortunately, we are asking that the orientation be an adult-only event.

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your child’s teacher, gain insight into what this year may be like for them and ask any questions you might have.

See you there!

Reminder : Parent Education Event

One more reminder of our parent Education event tomorrow — MONTESSORI FUNDAMENTALS from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in the Library.  Please consider pre-registering but, if you absolutely cannot, please come on the night.  You will be most welcome.  It will be a wonderful evening and an opportunity to learn more about the philosophy taught at our school as well as to meet and socialize with other parents.

Can’t wait to see you there!
