The last Montessori Buzz of 2023-2024

ar MA Families & Friends,

What’s next: August information and the MA Parent App

Your August Information

Families who are enrolled for the 2024-2025 school year will hear from the school via email after the Civic Holiday when your August Information package is ready through the Parent Portal.

The new MA Parent App – arriving this fall

Starting early next school year, we’ll launch the MA Parent App. We are very hopeful that this will streamline our communication channels for parents and lead you quickly and easily to the information you need.

It will be how we communicate regularly with parents, including urgent messages, the weekly Buzz, monthly classroom letters and more. If all goes as planned, detailed information on how to sign up and use the MA Parent App will be shared in September. Thanks for your patience as we prepare to launch this new tool.

Elevator construction at Oxford

As part of our commitment to making our spaces accessible, we have a large project happening at Oxford. Here’s a PDF of the letter that was sent to Oxford Casa families last week if you’re interested in learning more: 311 Oxford St Elevator Project June 20, 2024.pdf.

Closing early on Thursday

We’re closing early for the weekend on Thursday around noon for our year-end staff gathering. The office is closed on Friday and Canada Day.

Annual Appeal deadline is Friday

Help us complete our summer projects! We are oh-so-very close to our fundraising goal.  Scheduled projects for this summer including the elevator at Oxford, and improvements to Westmount’s Toddler yard are adding up. Donate online before June 30, 2024: Thank you for your support!

Congratulations, Class of 2024!

Go out, be awesome. The world needs more Montessori!
