1st – 5th grades

The elementary child, has a developmental need to acquire culture and to know the reason of things. The Montessori Elementary plan consists of a special curriculum aimed at teaching the whole human being, building a sense of responsibility, and creating independence.Montessori Elementary Education opens immense fields of knowledge and satisfies the curiosity of the child as he discovers his connection to all things. This imaginative ability to grasp the whole generates an emotion of wonder and gratitude for large- scale diversity. The developmental need of the child to associate with others in an organized fashion is also met and enables him to broaden his concepts of the world.A Montessori elementary class is an environment abundant in mathematics, language, science, and cultural subjects. Children work in different capacities on different academic levels. Lessons are presented with drama and excitement. Technology and state-of-the-art information are available in the immediate environment. Students use time management skills as they execute their work plan throughout each week.

The elementary-aged child is in a period of heightened social development, so he needs group experiences. Multi-age groupings mean more small-group options relative to ability and interest. They also mean maximizing the potential of each individual child in an environment that has a place for everyone, providing a profound sense of belonging.

Teacher Appreciation Gifts
Teacher Appreciation Gifts

adventure Each year the teachers and faculty of Millhopper Montessori School work incredibly hard to help our children learn and grow in a safe and healthy environment. During Teacher Appreciation Week we like to let them know how much we value their efforts. This year’s theme is designed to honor each individual’s interests and choices. As part of our Teacher Appreciation Week activities, the PTO Appreciation Committee is pleased to once again offer the opportunity to purchase for our teachers and staff a gift certificate to a local merchant of their choice. By many families contributing to the same gift, they are able to select something special. Participation is optional and we hope the program will alleviate some of the stress of this busy time of year. If you would like to participate, please place your order on this webpage or you may review the letter that was mailed to your home and indicate the dollar amount you wish to contribute next to the individual’s name. Please total all your contributions and return the form with cash or check (made out to MMS PTO) in an envelope to Crystal Sorrow by Friday, May 13, 2016. You may leave the envelopes at the front desk or hand them to Crystal directly. Gift certificates will be presented to each recipient during Teacher Appreciation Week with a card from the families who have contributed. Dollar amounts are not included on the card. Since the PTO is now a non-profit 501(c)(3), your donation may be tax deductible. Please speak to your tax advisor regarding tax deductions. If you are interested in assisting with planning Teacher Appreciation Week or if have any questions, please feel free to contact either of us at missyno@bellsouth.net or rimskoon@yahoo.com. Have a wonderful end of the school year! Missy Norman & Sheila Koon PTO Appreciation Committee
