Invention Animation

This week ideas will become reality. Students will brainstorm, create, build and animate.

In Invention Camp students will have the opportunity to play with gears and motors, as well as construct and build. They will learn about many different inventors and inventions to help them design their own.

In Animation Camp they will discover the roots of animation and be introduced to four different programs, Flip Boom Cartoon, Animationish, Flux Time Studio and Pixton Comics. Flux Time Studio and Pixton Comics are both online interfaces. The students will be working with a Wacom Bamboo Digital Slate to draw their animations.

Please remember that on Thursday, July 4, 2013 the school is closed for the holiday. On Friday, July 5, 2013, is our traditional Splash Day starting at 1:30pm – 2:30pm. Please wear your bathing suit under your clothes and bring a towel and sun screen.

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!
