A Note From Our Principal,
What a wonderful month of May where we celebrated teachers, moms, springtime, art and the return of parents in the building. For everyone who helped to make these celebrations and milestones extra special, thank you! Our young artists helped raise $453 in their Farmer’s Market art sales. This year’s kindergarten students helped to select the new playground items we are currently ordering. Be on the lookout for new excavators in the sandbox and coming soon, the mud kitchen.
In June, we are continuing the celebrations and learning. This month we celebrate all of our father’s, kindergarten graduates, and a year’s worth of learning from all our students. Thank you all for a wonderful year and your continued support in June. For those of you participating in our summer camps in July and August, be on the lookout for an additional summer newsletter with all camp details. And finally, for any students and families taking a summer break or graduating from our school we wish you all a wonderful summer!
Sincerely, Lila Afoa
With the summer warm months upon us, we are looking at sun safety for all students while outside. Please remember to bring your child to school with sunscreen already applied and consider encouraging your child to wear a sun hat as added protection.
End of Year Celebrations
We are so proud of all the work our kindergarten students have accomplished in their final year of Montessori. We have had a year of learning together and we send them off to first grade with all our best wishes. On June 23rd our school will be celebrating our 2021 kindergarten graduates with a short graduation ceremony in the front of school. Families of graduates are welcome to join your graduate for their scheduled ceremony time. Congratulations graduates; you’ve got this!
Our whole school will be celebrating the end of year with a summer dance party! Each classroom will have a designated date to participate in an outdoor dance party lead by their teachers and Mr. Jon from Treasure Valley Dance Institute. We will be serving all fruit popsicles to the students, setting up some lawn games and much more! Look for fun photos on your daily report. Thank you Montessori students for a filled year of resilience and all your work!
Thank You Miss Rose
Earlier this year, Miss Rose stepped down into early retirement from the Pre-Montessori classroom. Rose has been a staple with our Montessori schools since our beginning in 2000 and has been that welcoming presence for our youngest of students. We are working on gathering a collection of memories and messages to send to Rose at our staff end of year picnic. If you or your child would like to record a brief message to Rose or drop off any cards or gifts, please let the office know by June 18th and we will be sure they get to her. The link for recording messages will be emailed out separately.
