                End of Year News Letter

             May 7, 2013

The end of the year has arrived!  It is hard to believe the school year is almost over.  We would like to thank all parents for the support and help they have given to their children and to the school.  We could not have had the successful year we have had without your help.  We have seen a lot of growth in all the children academically, socially and emotionally.  We are so very proud of each one of them and we know they have grown to be proud of themselves. 

For the students that will be moving away, we will miss you very much, but we know you are ready for success in your next school. For the students that will be moving up to the Pre-K/ Kindergarten class, you are ready and have a great foundation for the move. For those students returning next year, we are excited and looking forward to having you be the leaders in the classroom.  We have many wonderful learning experiences to look forward to.

During April and May our class has enjoyed studying the parts of the flower & seeds.  The children really surprised us when some of them returned with their bean seed experiments for Show & Tell.  We couldn’t believe how much their seeds had grown! 

We are now studying the “Lifecycle of the Frog.”  We also watched a Monarch Butterfly emerge from her chrysalis this week!  Our students that are moving up are working more in their Math and Language lessons. I have seen great growth in concentration and interest in new works in all students this week.

One of the most enjoyable activities we did this year was our Patio Project.  Thank you again for your donations and parent participation! The children have been enjoying the plants, flowers, herbs and birds visiting our garden.  They have even had a humming bird visit!

Parent Appreciation Breakfast

The children are very excited about the Parent Appreciation Breakfast.  They have planned a special song and a special gift just for you!  We are looking forward to seeing you Thursday, May 9th from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m.

Report Card Conference Sign Up

Report Card Conferences will be held from Thursday, May 16th – Tuesday, May 21st. There will be a sign up sheet posted on our classroom door should you wish to discuss your child’s report card and progress.

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child’s early learning experiences!  Your child has had an impact on our lives and we have shared so many wonderful experiences together as a Montessori Family. They have grown so much! We hope you have a safe and fun summer. We have had a wonderful year! 

With kind regards,

Ms. Martha Dolan and Ms. Christina Wegner
