|Dear MA Families & Friends,
We are excited to welcome Jenn Neron back to the Art program for September! Over the last couple of years Jenn has been a part of our Elementary Art program teaching at both the Lower & Upper Elementary levels, as well as Junior High in partnership with both Anne C. and David M. Last year she was in our Westmount Casa classroom, so, many of our students and parents already know Jenn quite well. Welcome back to the Art Studio, Jenn!
50th Anniversary Weekend
WOW, what a fantastic weekend of events. Thank you to all our families who joined us in our various events.
FYI: for those who didn’t attend the Golden Anniversary, we BLEW our Fund a Need goal for the Kitchen Project out of the water. We wanted to raise $15,000 – we ended up raising a whopping $26,000!! WOW. Check out the video of the BIG reveal: https://www.facebook.com/MontessoriAcademyofLondon/videos/1658037667576783/
What We Believe…
At the Gala on Saturday, we unveiled a brilliant (in our humble opinion) new video for the school created by Junior High teacher Shawn Butler. It sums up what we believe – and ultimately what makes our school so different and special.
Hats off to the amazingly talented Shawn who put this incredible video together!
We want to get the word out – share this video far and wide. Now, more than ever, the world needs Montessori.
Check out next week’s Buzz for links to 50th photos and acknowledgements for our incredible supporters.
Don’t forget to tag your photos: #mhcMALDN50
so others can see your great photos!
We still have 50th anniversary merchandise for those interested in showing your school spirit! Samples are available at the Main Office.
