Important Information: Please read!

Hello Parents,

I had a parent inform me this weekend that their child’s head was itching after school on Friday. After checking it out they had head lice. Please check your child’s scalp to make sure we can eradicate this problem as soon as possible. Let me know if you have questions and/or need to inform me that your child has lice as well.

Please do not email me through the blog. The best form of contact is my work email: hgladwell@mariamontessoriacademy.org

Thank you,

Ms. Holly

Spelling Bee School Wide Unit of Study

Connections January 15th– February 22nd

Spelling Bee February 26th   

The theme CONNECTIONS is what your child will be studying during our fourth thematic unit.  During this time, we will be focusing on growth, division, reunion, and industrialization in the Americas mainly during the 1800s but not limited to this time period.

During this theme our school will celebrate a Spelling Bee week which will include class spelling bees, lower and upper el spelling bees, and a school wide spelling bee. All students are encouraged to participate in the spelling bee that will be held in their classroom. We want all students to work with the words used in the spelling bee to help build their vocabulary and spelling knowledge.

However, if your child is not comfortable participating in this event, they can also participate in other ways. If your child decides not to take part in their classroom bee, they will need to use the spelling bee words in another way to share with their classmates. Some of these ways include but are not limited to writing a story using as many of the spelling bee words as possible, creating multiple funny sentences using the words, create a board game using the words, create a game involving good, physical activity with the words, create a classroom scavenger hunt with the words.

When words are involved, the possibilities are endless!

Scripps National Spelling Bee lists were sent home today.  Please check with your student, you will need these words in hard copy form, since we are not authorized to post these words digitally.

Updates/ No School Monday

We have computers every Thursday. All the lower el. students use the headphones through the week. These are not being restored properly and some of them have become tangled. Also, there is hygiene to consider with multiple student use. If you would like to purchase earbuds or headphones for your child, we would be happy to store them in the classroom in a zip lock bag for them to use during computer time. Please don’t feel obligated because we can problem solve this issue if you don’t have the means to purchase headphones.

We have also noticed that many student’s slippers are falling apart and wanted to give you a heads up if you see any on sale to buy for your child.

Have a great long weekend in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Legacy. Never underestimate the power and impact you can have to make a difference for the good in the world.
