Spring Literary Magazine

The Spring Edition of the literary magazine is here and ready for sale. It can be purchased from the main office for $3.00.

In addition to the yearbook, the yearbook staff is making a “Year in Review” movie. There are 2 movies being made—1 for elementary and 1 for junior high These movies will be burned onto CDs and distributed with the yearbooks, BUT ONLY if people PRE-ORDER one. We will be selling the movies every day next week before school. The movies cost $5.00 each. Even if someone didn’t buy a yearbook, they can still purchase one (or both) of the movies.

Advisory 4/25- 4/29


Monday:  Planning, finishing painting rocks for school ocean project

Tuesday:  Hand Model of the Human Brain

Wednesday & Thursday Are opportunities for the students to relax after a day of testing and do something they enjoy.  They can bring in a pillow/blanket and take a snooze.  They can bring in a craft project.  They can work on school work so that they don’t have any homework. They can play a board game.

Friday:  Personal World.  This week advisory houses can decide, as a house, how to use their time this Friday.

Spelling Bee

This is our second year participating in the Great American SpellCheck! Here’s how it works: your child studies grade-specific word lists and are tested in their classrooms. The three students who spell the most words correctly from each class will then move on to represent their class in the school wide spelling bees! Your student needs your help in the following ways:

April 11th – April 17th: Encourage your students to practice, practice, practice!

April 18th & April 19th: Spell Check Tests! These tests will be done in the classroom to determine the top three spellers from each room.

Wednesday April 20th: Teachers will send home with each participating student the student’s graded tests and an invitation for the finals. The top three students will be chosen from each classroom to participate in the school-wide spelling bee.

Friday April 22nd: School-wide spelling bees will take place in the gymnasium!

  •  LE- 9-10am
  •  UE- 11-12pm
  •  Junior High-12-1pm

I hope that you share our excitement about our school’s participation in the Great American SpellCheck. Together we can encourage strong spelling skills and build a fantastic community! Please be sure to ask questions if you have them.

Science Fair Volunteers

Science Fair volunteers are still needed on February 17th and 18th 2016.  Maria Montessori Academy will be having our annual science fair for the 4th and 5th graders on the 17th and for the 6th and 8th graders on the 18th of February.  This is always an exciting time for our students and we need your help to make this a fun and memorable event.  We need volunteers  to help with a variety of tasks from set-up/clean-up, judging, judging coordinators, score keepers and snacks.  No experience necessary for most of the tasks, also volunteers do not need to be parents of students participating in the science fair.  Please contact Paula Dugan at pdugan@mariamontessoriacademy.org or Rob Garrett at rgarrett@mariamontessoriacademy.org.
