Montessori Academy's vision is that each student
will become an independent, confident, motivated learner, and a responsible community member as a result of the dynamic partnership between
students, parents, and teachers.
This partnership within the exceptional Montessori environment, while developing these characteristics, enables each student to become a life-long learner.
Dear Room #3 Parents,
This is the big week! We leave for the conference in Orlando on Thursday morning early. We’re so excited! Thank you so much for making this possible. If not for your generosity, we would not be able to attend the conference and bring so many new ideas back to your children.
In the classroom, we’ve changed the focus in geography from the study of Asia to the study of the continent of Africa. Some of the children’s favorite animals live in Africa. In addition, each year it’s a revelation that there really is a place called Madagascar. They all thought that it just existed in the animated film.
Our science shelf is ever-changing. We are currently learning about birds because it’s a great subject in spring. When we return from break, the topic will change to insects and then seeds and new plant growth (also appropriate for springtime).
This will be a short week due to the number of teachers attending the conference. School will be closed Thursday and Friday. Then, next week is Spring Break. We hope those of you traveling will be safe and that all of you enjoy quality family time during the break.
Hopefully, when we return, Mother Nature will have decided to move on to warm weather. We’ve had enough indoor time in 2013 and desperately need Vitamin D from the sunshine.
Have a great break,
Leanna Pound and Lisa Hill
