Dear Parents,

We have had several home project visitors, this week. Which is wonderful, seeing that all of the students have worked very hard on their projects. I am always happy to be flexible and accommodate visitors who come to our classroom, but I would prefer prior communication beforehand.  Just send me a email in the morning before 8 am, or the evening before, and let me know you are coming. This way, we can ready for you, and the students can be assembled and ready to present! If you have other relatives coming, please inform them as well.

Thanks,

Miss Elise

Dear Parents,

We are starting to have a problem with students bringing toys into the classroom. During the week, please make sure students aren’t putting toys in their pockets or backpack. The biggest problem, is students putting small things in their pockets, and trying to play with them during circle or work cycle. I appreciate your help with this issue. If this continues to be a problem, I will take the toys and return them at conferences.

Thanks,

Miss Elise

Dear Parents,
Our second and final ski night at Nordic Valley is on February 3rd. The registration will be:
January 22nd, 3:00-4:00
January 27th, 8:15-9:00
The cost is $27 for the package that includes a 2 hour lesson, rental equipment, and a lift ticket that is good until closing that evening. The lesson starts at 4:00, so if you leave MMA right after school for Nordic Valley, your child should be able to get his/her rental, lift ticket, and to the lesson in time. You may choose to purchase a meal ticket for $5 either at registration or when you check your child in at ski school.
We are also selling Gala tickets at the same time. The price is $20 per person. The Gala Committee has spent many hours planning. This year’s Gala is going to include a DJ with dancing, a larger meal, a cash bar, and a bigger venue! Please support our school by getting your tickets and preparing to bid on one or more of the many auction items we’ll have!
We take cash, check, or credit card for both ski registration and for the Gala. We look forward to seeing you and will keep you informed of future ticket sales dates for the Gala.
Thank you for your continued support of our awesome school!

Dear Parents,

Here are the days and times for the January home projects. We will use Friday for a make-up day if anyone is sick or absent during their day. I reminded the students that it is their responsibility to make the project, and bring it to school. Email me if you have any questions.

Dear Parents,

Please assist your children, in making sure they have slippers to wear during the school day. I will remind them today, that slippers are a  necessary part of a Montessori classroom, to keep the environment quiet and peaceful. I have had several students start wearing boots because of the cooler weather, which is fine, but they need to change into slippers before coming to class. I appreciate the extra assistance with this issue.

Thanks,

Miss Elise

Dear Parents,

I had the students vote, and discuss, what they would like to do for this month’s home project. They choose kids’s choice. They can present what is of interest to them. This is a very broad topic, but try not to present topics we have already done. For example, a specific member of the family, or anything relating to Asia. I told the students to teach us something new, that we don’t know about  certain topics or themselves. Please let me know if you have any questions. We won’t be presenting for a few weeks, but I wanted to give plenty of notice! I will post the days and times soon.

Thanks,

Miss Elise
