Dear Gamers & Parents,

For November we will only have two sessions due to school holidays.  I am excited to have a little time off, but also sad that we won’t be playing as many games together.  It also seems like November is a busy month both at school and for me personally.  In trying to find a day to hold a make-up time, I am coming up short.  I was thinking that instead, we could extend the time of the two November sessions.  I propose that we have an extra 1/2 hour each on November 4 and November 18 to make up for last week’s (Oct 21) missed session.  Will that work with everyone’s schedule?  Please let me know a.s.a.p. if there is a conflict.

SNACK for November (please bring enough for 5 children, thank you).


Stian – NOVEMBER 4

no session NOVEMBER 11


no session NOVEMBER 25


In December we are going to “build” our own game.  We will talk about fair and reasonable rules and expectations.  We will discuss adding in fun elements and then we will play our game.  We will decide if it should be an “every wo/man for him/her self” or a cooperative game all working towards the same goal.  I am really looking forward to seeing the creative side of these kids.

Looking forward to hearing from 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 or Have a wonderful end of the school year!
