In keeping with the Montessori philosophy, I will be asking some of the younger elementary students to join the junior vocal ensemble. The elementary students will develop confidence and leadership skills as the younger students learn proper techniques that are being modeled by the older students. The same will apply for the advanced students assisting the senior vocal ensemble. There will be no extra cost if your child participates in two sessions. Elementary-Middle School students will be placed in groups depending on musical skill and behavior demonstrated during rehearsals.
If your answer is YES to the following questions, then the vocal ensemble studio is for you!

 Do you love to sing?
 Can you carry a tune?
 Are you able to move to the beat of the music?
 Do you have dramatic expression?
 Do you love bringing joy to others through the performing arts?

Students will be exposed to a wide variety of musical styles and genres in vocal ensemble. In addition to singing, some compositions will lend itself to great choreography and dramatic presentations. Most importantly, students learn how to work as a team and develop self-confidence as they work towards a common goal.

Deadline: Application deadline is Friday, August 19th. Families will be notified via e-mail about ensemble placement on the weekend of August 19th.

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!
