DETERING ORCHARDS: Our Detering’s Orchards trip was perfect! Many thanks to the adult volunteers for keeping our kids safe and putting up with the crowded, bumpy wagon ride. The photos posted on our Facebook page are wonderful! If you haven’t had a chance to see them take a look.



JOGATHON: The students were awesome! Please return your pledges. Thanks.


CURRICULUM SHARING: This is a special time when your child can bring you into the classroom and show you some favorite work. We have two times available on Wednesday, October 24, to accommodate family schedules. Come anytime between 3:05-4:00 or 6:00-7:00.


FIRST GREAT LESSON: This week the students will hear the story of the ‘Birth of the Universe’, according to scientists. The Montessori First Great Lesson weaves a tale of the origins of the universe and our own planet. Using impressionistic charts and experiments directly related to the basic physical properties of matter a foundation is made for the future study of physics, chemistry, astronomy and geology.

I present this information as a theory and explain that no one really knows how the universe began because no one was there to see it. You may wish to discuss your family’s beliefs with your student.


FAMILY CONFERENCES: A conference sign up schedule will soon be available. Watch for more information in next week’s update.
