Montessori Buzz – Oct. 25, 2022
Dear MA Families & Friends,
Photo Retakes – sign-up form
Photo retake day this year is Friday, November 4. If you would like your child/ren to retake their photo (or if they missed the original photo day), please fill out their information in the Google Sheet linked below.
The location for retakes will be mentioned in next week’s Buzz, so please look out for that!
Pick-up and Drop-off reminders
Recently, we’ve observed a few incidents of family members parking in or blocking our neighbours’ driveways. If family or friends are picking up and dropping off, please share our parking processes with them; our processes – by location – can be found on the Parent Portal under Resources: https://montessori.myschoolapp.com/app/parent#resourceboarddetail/25158
Thank you for helping us model the courtesy we seek to instill in our students. 🙂
Remembrance Day Assembly – RSVPs due Nov. 4
We’re moving the time and location of our Elementary and Junior High Remembrance Day Assembly this year! Paper RSVP forms were sent home recently; please complete this form and return it to your child’s teachers.
1000 Acts of Kindness update
Our Toddlers spent time Tuesday morning organizing their donations for the Humane Society of London and Middlesex. Thank you to all of our families who have generously donated to our #1000ActsofKindness so far.
Photos from the Week
Toddler 1 making sandwiches
Last week in Toddler 1, we introduced “making a sandwich” to the children. We invited them to spread some jam onto their bread, and also to cut a piece of banana to place on top. Simple activities that we do as adults can be complex for our toddlers. Food preparation is a great activity for children as it satisfies all of their senses. It even can entice a child to eat something new, as they got to be apart of the process.
Parent-Child Class visits in Casa
We would just like to thank those parents who attended our Parent-Child class visits! The students were so excited and proud to demonstrate their skills!
Westmount Casa wishes everyone a Happy Diwali!
