Montessori Preschool Orientation

Our Parent Orientation will be Thursday, August 22 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. It will take place in the cafeteria. Your child may come, however this meeting is for your questions and basic classroom information. You may also bring in your supplies that night along with any paperwork. Supplies and paperwork are due the first day of school.

There are still several people who have not subscribed to my blog. Please remind any spouses or family members to do so. I have sent out numerous reminder emails. This is very important because it is the main way we communicate with you throughout the year.

We still have openings in our program. If you have a friend or family member interested in Montessori Preschool, have them call 313-827-8350.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on August 22!


Hope everyone has been enjoying their summer. It is going by so fast.

Last blog of the year!

What a wonderful yet bittersweet day it has been! Saying goodbye is never easy when they have been “our kids” all year.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you for sharing your kids. They were truly an awesome group. Each one of them always made me smile, and has a special place in my heart.  Even today I found myself bragging to another teacher how well behaved they were at assemblies.

We will miss the kids moving on to different schools. Wishing those families the best of luck. Please keep our emails to keep in touch, or stop in to say hi.

To the families remaining with us or moving on to K, we look forward to seeing you in August.

I would also like to thank everyone for their kind words and gifts. It is very much appreciated.

Last I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe summer.

It’s been a pleasure….❤️




Tomorrow we will be meeting everyone at the zoo. We will see you by the ticket gate. The weather looks promising.

However, Thursday, it looks like rain is in the forecast all day. This is our picnic day. Chances are we will be having the picnic inside. The picnic is scheduled for 11, but the kids have a song they would like to sing in our classroom first. Please try to be here by 10:45. It would be nice if each child had someone attend. Children get very sad when an event likes this happens and no one is there for them. Remember this is a potluck. Bring your own drinks and serving utensils for your dish. If by some chance the day is nice and it is held outside, bring your own chair please.

Friday is our last day, and a half day. You must pick up your child no later than 11:45.

Have a great day!


Today is the last Michigan day. Please make sure your child has a show and tell.

We have an assembly at 9:00 this morning. If you are running late, you must sign in at the front office, and walk your child to the gym.

Later today, we will be attending the Honor’s Choir musical. This is at 2:40. If you plan on picking your child up early, you must pick them up in the gym.

Friday all library books are due. There will be NO MORE check outs. Please look around your home for any books.

We are still in need of a couple snacks to get us through the end of the year. If you have not done 10 this year, please sign up to bring one.

There is NO SCHOOL next week, June 4,5, and 6. Enjoy the time off with your family.

Have a great day!


Tomorrow is our last Michigan day. Please make sure your child brings in a Michigan show and tell.

If anyone would like to bring snack (especially if you have not contributed 10 times) we need it for tomorrow and Thursday. Thank you very much!

Good Morning

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Wow, I can’t believe it is almost June. The next couple of weeks are going to be very busy, as we do end of the year activities.

Tomorrow, please make sure you are on time. We have an assembly in the gym at 9:00. Otherwise, you will have to walk your child down to the gym and check in at the front office. We will also be attending the Honor’s Choir musical later in the afternoon. If you would like to see the performance there is another one at 4:00 for parents and public in the gym. Also your child will have hearing tested by Wayne County Health Department either tomorrow or Thursday.

Have a great Tuesday!


Would anyone like to bring home the chrysalides over the long weekend? I’m afraid that they may emerge into butterflies while we are not in school. It’s very simple to care for them. I will give you all the directions, including a packet for sugar water, if they do turn. All I ask is you bring them back on Tuesday so the class can see them and release them. Please email me if you are interested.

Progress Reports

Progress reports will be going home today. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask us.

Thank you to everyone for your generous donations for the Michigan party. We received so much, that we will be able to have it once or twice again before the year ends.
