Photos from the week
Parent-Child Casa visits resumed last week!
It has been far too long since we’ve been able to welcome families into the school. Last week our first Casa classrooms welcomed parents for their Parent-Child visits. We realized for some families, this might be the first time they’ve stepped into the Montessori learning environment since their school tours! Welcome!
Year 3 gratitude art projects
Spread the love! The Year 3 students reflected on all the people who help them day to day at our school. To show their gratitude, the kids created cards for all of these special people. Ronin went the extra mile and made a paper computer for Karl, our computer expert! What a sweet surprise!! In case you are wondering, it’s a custom iPear instead of an iMac.
UE2 hatched chicks
The UE2 students spent some quality time with their new chicks last week.
