St. Jude Children’s Research hospital: Maria Montessori once said, "Let us give the children a vision of the Universe.” It was her hope that Montessori education would allow children to grow in to responsible individuals, with understanding, ethics, self knowledge and empathy to transform the universe. Every year, Schoolhouse Montessori Academy students participate in contributing towards a good cause. This allows them to understand , empathize , contribute towards the society and be a part of the community. This year we will be again collecting donations for “St. Jude Children’s Research hospital” to help develop a sense of community among our children. We will start collecting donations from February 24th– March 2nd. Information for the donations will be communicated to you closer to the date. We will be making the donation to the organization after the Montessori week.
School of Choice week: We will be celebrating “School of choice week” during the Montessori week. We will have planned activities during that week.
All students must carry appropriate, labeled winter clothing/gear. Weather permitting, students would be going outside. If you require your child to remain indoors, a doctors note stating the cause must be presented to the office. Please understand, due to staffing, we cannot accommodate requests without a doctors note.
