This week will be filled with sound and music!  The children will create their own music.  They will be able to form a band and collaborate together to write their very own song.  In addition, there will be a number of projects that will help them with this creative process, such as making their own instruments and making posters to promote their band.  The children will have the opportunity to practice within the classroom and learn to work as a group.  At the end of the week, the children will be able to perform their song as a band and may dress up as real rock stars.  Also, the children are welcome and encouraged to bring in their own instruments from home to practice throughout the week and perform Friday afternoon.

Friday is Splash Day!  The children may wear their swim suit to school or may bring their swim suit to change into.  Also, please make sure your child has a change of clothes as well as a towel.  Also please supply your child with a plastic bag, so he/she may put their wet clothes in.

Thank you,
Ms. Widline Senecharles and Ms. Kayleigh Bush

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 or Have a wonderful end of the school year!
