"Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty."
-- Louis D. Brandeis


This Past June...

June marked the start of our summer season and we had plenty of activities to start celebrating. We started the month off with our Pajama Day! The students looked absolutely adorable in their different pajamas. We then kicked off summer with yummy hot dogs, chips, and fruit thanks to Ella and Nolan's dad, Mr. Hall. And finally, we ended the month with a few celebration shows! Ms. Ali, Ms. Denise, and Ms. Sunita's classes worked very hard and did an amazing job with their 4th of July performances.

Independence Day...

Independence Day is more than a chance for family and friends throughout the country to gather for barbecues and fireworks displays, it is an annual celebration to commemorate the courage and faith of our founding fathers in their pursuit of liberty. We hope that everyone enjoys their holiday with friends and family and we look forward to your safe return!


Summer Reading Contest...

Last year was a huge success for our Reading Contest. With all their hard work, the children together read more than 1900 books. How incredible! This year buildings 1903 and 1905 will ask their children to give another go at trying to read even more books. Please stay tuned next month to find out what your children did and how many more books they read.


Why the Montessori Method?...

Meeting the Needs of Your Child

The Montessori Method is a hands-on, prepared environment that is always growing at a child's own pace. A Montessori environment is an attempt, in an orderly fashion, to meet the multiple needs of each child and the needs of different types of children. Educating children in an atmosphere where their need for time, space, support, and stimulation can be met is just one of the many benefits of the Montessori Method.
