NEWS FROM THE COUNTRYSIDE MONTESSORI MIDDLE SCHOOL weekly updates on what's going on inside of the community

Our current subjects in math are scientific notation and rules of exponents. Scientific notation is a way of writing very big numbers or very small numbers, without having to write lots of zeroes. The rules of exponents shows us how to multiply, divide, add, and subtract numbers with exponents. We had a quiz to see how much we know on each subject. We also had a couple sheets of homework that we reviewed and discussed.

The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see. - Alexandra K. Trenfor

Opera is underway! The costume crew has began pulling costumes for this year’s performance of Persephone from our stash in the basement. Ms. Williams has returned to CMS this year for the opera. She is heading the costumes department and guiding us on what needs to be touched up and what we will keep. So far, we have pulled half of the necessary costumes and not many need to be re-done! More updates to come!

It’s up to you how far you go, if you don’t try you'll never know. - Merlin, Sword and The Stone
Every dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. - Harriet Tubman
