A Note From Our Principal,
Happy New Year! We can’t wait to spend 2021 with you and your children. Thank you to all who participated in our holiday giving initiative last month. We partnered with the Ronald McDonald House and were able to provide almost 100 sets of Pajamas and children’s stories for their youngest residents. Your generosity is truly appreciated!
Please take a moment to read through the news and reminders below and let myself or anyone else on our administrative team know if you have questions or concerns.
Sincerely, Lila Afoa
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please send in an extra set of weather appropriate clothes for your child. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warmly enough to play outside for part of the day. We want everyone to be able to participate!
Parent Volunteer Opportunities
Spring Gardening: We are looking for some volunteers to help prepare the garden for planting sometime in March. If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact Jamie as she will help coordinate.
Library Books: We are looking for parents who are willing to help cover books for our school library. We will provide the supplies and instructions, you can take them home and complete in your timing.
Looking for donations in the following: children’s pants (sizes for 2-5 year old), and plastic grocery bags.
Online Book Fair Hosted by Rediscovered Books
We are happy to announce that Montessori Academy will be partnering with local book store, Rediscovered Books, for our annual Book Fair! This year will be an online-only event in which Rediscovered Books will share 30% of all sales for in-store credit to support our classrooms. An online shopping code will be provided to you for the online event as well as access to your classroom’s wish list items. More information to come.

We update these items frequently to ensure you’re always in the know. Though we send information through Links 2 Home, our calendar can be printed or even downloaded directly to your device.
