This class will embrace many aspects of dance, theatre, music, and movement. Students will learn basic stretches, movements, choreography, tumbling, and yoga poses. This class will be very interactive with children developing dance moves in an often improvisational style, encouraged by planned music or stylistic props. Classmates will encourage each other, laugh together, move together, and learn physical confidence. The goals in this class are to reduce shyness, encourage self-esteem, and establish freedom within self-expression. This class acknowledges that just as we all move differently we can all move confidently. Classes will also include mask making, the use of rhythm instruments, the use of poetry and story with dance, and other extensions that incorporate theatrical elements. Large movement props such as a parachute, hula-hoops, jump ropes, and bean bags will also be introduced and used to develop new physical skills.

Four students are needed for the class to occur.

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!
