Montessori Buzz – February 1, 2022

Dear MA Families & Friends,

Casa/Toddler Extended Hours

Moving into February, we continue to be mindful of the health of our Toddler/Casa staff and
students, as well as staffing ratios. Therefore, we will not offer Occasional Use of our Early and Extended Hours, and the program will continue to operate 8-5pm until February 25.

Updates to this program may depend on upcoming provincial announcements; we will share any
changes as they’re decided, either via your Parent Reps or in the Buzz.

Screening required before drop-off

We still require families to self-screen at home by 7:45 a.m. per the daily text reminder. We will let you know through the Buzz when screening is no longer required.

Re-enrolment is open

Re-enrolment opened last week and is due by Friday, February 11. Parents can find the forms required when you log into the MA Parent Portal:

What’s for Dinner – Last Chance!

The deadline for getting your What’s for Dinner order is tomorrow!  Get your order in today before your favourite item sells out … like this specialty heart-shaped red velvet cake! Fresh-to-go … and only 4 left!

We cannot wait to get together for a day of just pure fun. Check out some of the inflatables we will have set up in the party room at the Factory! Tickets are selling fast…  Buy yours online today to avoid disappointment!

Happy Lunar New Year!

CBC London featured two of our students and their tradition of celebrating Lunar New Year. Well done, Gabrielle and Juliet. 🙂
