Happy New Year Parkcenter Montessori
A huge thank you to all that participated in our school’s philanthropy events last month. Together our families raised 280 pounds of food for Idaho Food Bank, almost 1,000 diapers for Idaho Diaper Fund, $400 of books towards our school’s library, and 100 coats for the Coats for Kids program. This month the Kindergarten students are working on their Global outreach project to send out in February. Thank you for helping to make our community a great place to be!

Thank you for your help.
The Silent Journey: January 12
All parents are invited to attend this Montessori curriculum event.Have you ever wondered how Montessori materials and lessons contribute to a 3 year learning journey for your children? This is the event for you! During this evening event, all of our Montessori certified teachers will walk through the 3 year journey of the Montessori curriculum. Each classroom will showcase a specific curricular area so that you can see how Montessori materials work in mathematics, in language/writing, in cultural layout, and much more. Parents will walk through the classrooms to see lesson presentations, material lay out and learn the sequence and scope of Montessori materials. We hope to see you there!
Re-Enrollment for 2017-2018 School Year
Soon it will be time to make decisions regarding your children’s re-enrollment for next school year. We want to ensure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. In February, we will be hosting a Kindergarten orientation event as well as a Elementary orientation to help assist in making informed decisions. Our orientation nights will be specific to our school but we will welcome any and all questions.

Once Priority enrollment closes, we will beging to offer any unreserved openings to families on our wait list. For questions feel free to ask your teacher or administration.
