Picture Day

Hello families!

October 22nd- Student picture day!

Some frequently asked questions we get in the office.
Does every student get their picture taken? Yes. This is for fall pictures as well as the yearbook
Do the students bring anything with them (i.e. order forms or money) Yes they can, but please encourage parents to order online. Any money will be handed directly to the photographer as the office is not permitted to take money.
Does every student need to be in dress code? YES!!! Again this will go in the yearbook, so every student should be in dress code. Please no hats or funny head wear.
What happens if I do not receive my photos or if they are wrong? Please have parents reach out to lifetouch with the number on the flyer. The office can not do anything regarding parent orders.
Will there be a retake day? Yes, Re-take day is on November 14, but please encourage your students to have their picture done next week so we do not miss anyone.
Thank you!
Ms. Karen

Field trip: Our first field trip to the Clark Planetarium is next Friday, October 11th.  It is a favorite for kids and their chaperones!  If you would like to chaperone, please contact me asap so that I can reserve a Tracks wrist band for you.  Please remember that chaperones pay for their ticket into the Imax theater.  Also, chaperones must have completed a background check.  These take time to process, so please get it done asap.  Thank you!

Volunteers and Chaperones: Your participation in our classroom is vital to the success of every child!  We encourage donating time to the classroom in many forms including reading with students, helping with class events, and donating items like snack.  If you would like to volunteer in the classroom and will be at the school for more than 1 hour, please complete a background check.  For those helping with events and reading with children, etc., I do not expect these activities to exceed an hour.

Dia de los Muertos: Our class will be celebrating Dia de los Muertos on Friday, November 1st from 2-3 pm.  This holiday has become very dear to me and I am so excited to share it with our students and families.  If this is a tradition celebrated in your family, please contact me! The purpose of this celebration is to honor our family members who have passed away.  Every child is invited to bring a picture of a special family member to place on our ofrenda and to share their special memories.  We will have other activities as well.  If you would like to help with this celebration, please let me know!!

To learn more about one of my favorite holidays, please read this article from the National Geographic.

Thank you so much for sharing your precious children with me and with Maria Montessori Academy.  Your participation in our school is a gift to each of us and I am so grateful to work with you!

With affection,

Ms. Karen

Home projects

Hello families!

Home projects are a wonderful opportunity for families to get involved in learning and to support their children in further research and educational experiences.  We have home projects due throughout the year.  These projects tie directly to the unit of study being taught at that time.  Projects are intended to be fun and to allow each child to explore an area of interest at a deeper level.  If you have any questions, please contact me!

These are the lists of projects.  There is a list for each grade level.

Grade 1:

Home Projects 2019-20 (1)

Hello!

Volunteers make the world go round!  Your participation in our school is what makes so many things possible, especially field trips!

In an effort to ensure the safety of every child in our school, we ask that any and all volunteers get a background check.  This is an excerpt from the most recent MMA Montessori Moment:

“Any adult in the building for an hour or more that could possibly be alone with a child needs to have a background check in our system. All official field trip chaperones also need a background check. This is to keep all of our children safe.

There will be someone at MMA to conduct background checks next week on September 17th at 5pm – before the MAPA begins at 6pm. Volunteers will need to make 2 payments at this time $37 to MMA for processing and $25 to Academica West for doing the live scan. Cash, check, and charge are all accepted.

We realize that it can be tough for some of our families to pay for background checks and we don’t want this to be a barrier to volunteering inside school. Please know that once you’re in this new system (Rapback), you will not have to pay or do this again.”

Thank you so much for your understanding and support in ensuring the safety of our precious students.  If you have any questions, please contact our Assistant Director, Ms. Lana, at lpas@mariamontessoriacademy.org
