Field Trip Tomorrow

Please have your child at the Megaplex Theatre by 8:45am Thursday, April 18th. We have to be in the theatre by 9:00am and will not be able to accept late comers. We will leave the theatre at 10:30am to head back to school.

If your child is getting a ride to the movie from the school, you must arrive to the school in time for us to leave at 8:35am.

If you have not contacted me or signed your child up to get a ride back to the school, then I’m assuming you will be transporting your child both ways. Parents are not able to stay for the movie unless we have been in contact to be a chaperone.

They do not allow treats in the theatre. We will have a snack when we return to the school.

Let me know if you have questions.

Thank you!

Interdependence Home Project February-April

Hello Parents,

Our last home project of the year is on creative writing. This assignment can be based on something that happened to them, or someone they know, or from their imagination. They can choose to write a poem, a song, a play, or a story. This project can be simple or complex depending on your child’s ability and interest. We would like this to be a fun and creative experience for your child. This project must also include an illustration(s) to accompany their writing. This can be from a variety of things- drawing, painting, clay, puppet, mobile, booklet, shadow box, etc.

If you have questions, please email me: hgladwell@mariamontessoracademy.org
