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

I am still finalizing our Parent Orientation meeting which will most likely be held the week before school starts in the early evening. Please check your emails for the final date.
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.
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.
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.
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.
