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 11 Families,
The beautiful days of fall are quickly drawing to a close. Please remember that, as it gets cooler we will continue to play outside on most days. It is important that all children are dressed warmly. Please take a moment to label all outer wear with your child’s name. Heavier jackets may be worn to school and at playtime. Any jacket worn inside must carry the Montessori Academy logo.
Our presentations have gone well. In recent weeks we have had “visitors from the past.” They have included Marie Curie, Sacajawea, Neil Armstrong, Clara Barton, and Ben Franklin. We have enjoyed hearing about the family trees of third level students and significant events in the timelines of first level students. Thank you, parents for supporting your child in a successful presentation.
Montessori Academy has a beautiful tradition of sharing a meal together to celebrate Thanksgiving. Students and teachers alike look forward to the delicious food brought by our families. We hope to see you this week as we enjoy a meal with our Lower Elementary Montessori community. Stop by the room and read our “Give Thanks” poster to see what the students are thankful for.
Charlene Hosey recently came and presented a program on Native Americans. We learned about the variety of houses they built and their lifestyle. Students enjoyed dressing up, playing games, doing word matches and other enriching activities. As a follow-up activity third level students read about the Pueblo Indians in their Scholastic News.
Hopefully you have seen the work that has been sent home which includes the Clock of Eras, parts of the skeleton, and writing to a thousand. The children take pride in their learning as well as their presentation of work.
Thank you for the donations of food to Second Harvest Food Bank. We are learning that there are many children in Nashville without food and that it is good to share.
We hope that you and your family have a wonderful holiday. We are grateful for each and every one of you and your children. It is a fulfilling experience to watch them grow as students and as people.
Have a great Thanksgiving break!
