Montessori Buzz – March 7, 2023

Dear MA Families & Friends,

CHF Event is FRIDAY!

Beach Day (Toddler-UE) and Jersey Day (Junior High) are this Friday, March 10! Our Junior High students can “sport” a jersey of choice, either their own or of their favourite sports player. Students in Elementary and Casa can dress in appropriate beach attire (no bathing suits) for an enjoyable “day under the sun.” The Junior High committee will be accepting loose change for the Children’s Health Foundation programs. Early this year, Pyjama Day produced $1,911.95 for the Expanding Creative Art Therapies to Child and Adolescent Mental Health. The money fundraised for Beach Day and Jersey Day will also go to these programs. Through our commitment to Charitable Giving, we are making a difference in the lives of children facing serious health issues. As a committee, we would love to see either the same amount or go above and beyond to allow kids in hospitals the opportunity to have these programs, transforming their healthcare experience. Remember every contribution counts!

Thank you for your continued support and participation!
Junior High CHF Committee

MA-Zing Circus Survey

We are looking for feedback from the attendees of the MA-Zing Circus! This is the first time we have done a large-scale, family-style Gala, and we would love your thoughts. This survey was sent by email to everyone who purchased tickets. If you did not receive the email, or had guests who attended on your behalf please forward the survey link to them. Please complete the survey before this Friday, March, 10.
We truly value your input and will use the information to plan future school fundraising events.


You’ve asked, and we’ve listened! Back by popular demand, we are participating in a Plantables sale again this year! Purchase your plants online today and have them delivered to your door when you are ready to start your garden. Proceeds from each plant sale support the school. Happy Planting!
