INFORMATION:

Box Tops for Education: Submitted twice per year and are available on a multitude of products you purchase. Please donate and leave Box Tops in the Tuition drop box located in your child’s classroom-Thank you! If you are a family member interested in helping process Box Tops, please contact Jen Curtis.

Scholastic Book Orders:  Due by the first Tuesday of the Month. Please leave your order in the marked envelope in your child’s classroom or even easier-you can now order online. Your orders help us obtain books for each classroom. 

Montessori Services: (www.montessoriservices.com) this event allows you to provide child-friendly Montessori inspired products for your child at home. A voucher based on sales allows us to replenish works and materials (especially pitchers) in our classrooms.

Photos  of your children doing Montessori school works (spring) and formals (fall) will be taken and offered for sale.

“Courtesy and Grace”  We ask Pre Primary children to bring a lunch they help prepare, to enjoy with friends Monday through Thursday. Lunch is provided Friday.  Lunch is provided Monday through Friday for our Toddler classrooms. Snacks are provided daily for our toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners.  

*Lessons such as rug rolling, pushing in a chair, putting a work away, mealtime manners etc... give the vocabulary, actions, and sense of routine required to build awareness and responsiveness of those around them (“Sense of Community”).
