Dear Parents and Thespians,

We have a few rehearsals before our District Competition on Saturday, November 16, 2013. The competition is at Keystone Heights Junior/Senior High School (map attached). The address is: 900 Orchid St, Keystone Heights, FL 32656. The District sponsor is Tricia Williams.

We will depart on Saturday, 11/16 at 7:30am from Millhopper Montessori School, because registration is from 8:30am – 9:30am. Please be prompt and come wearing your NEW Spotlight Kids Tshirt and LONG BLUE JEANS, wear or bring your Spotlight Kids Jacket! This is very important! (no exceptions). Pick up is at MMS at approx.: 8:00pm. Please make sure your hair is neat and pulled away from your face. Please bring cash for dinner and extra snacks.

As a reminder lunch is included with your fee, some of you did not turn in an order form, I ordered extra items. You do have a choice of bringing a bag lunch. Snacks and water will be provided. Our first event is at 10:09am, this will give us the opportunity to map our locations, and to watch some other school’s events, (if there is room). Chaperones, please make sure you have had the background check required by the school.
Parents, family and friends are welcome to come and watch, however due to space I cannot guarantee that you will be able to watch, all the categories are done in separate classrooms. Each troupe is allowed to watch their team members perform, if there is room inside the venue (classroom). The cost for the day pass is $10.00 per person. No PHOTOGRAPHY OR FILMING ALLOWED. If you are caught: cameras, video cameras, ipads, cell phones, etc. will be removed until the end of the competition, then they will be returned to you.

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
