October 2019 Newsletter
We are falling into October with fun educational events, fundraisers, pumpkin decorating, and a visit to the Pumpkin Patch. You are welcome to join us.
Pre-K-5th October 7th is Red Ribbon Day and a Rally with Leo the Lion to be “Drug Free.”
St. Jude Bike & Trike-A-Thon
We are hosting this event on Friday, October 11th to raise money for children with cancer. You will receive an information sheet which includes a permission slip and a pledge sheet. Please return the permission slip by Thursday, October 10th. The pledges may be based on the number of “laps” your student rides their bike/trike or you can collect flat donations. Money should be turned in by October 16th. We will need a lot of volunteers for this event so please let a teacher know if you can help. We hope you come and enjoy the fun!
The Fall Fundraiser will begin Monday, October 21st. We are raising money for a covered walk way to keep your child dry while walking between buildings; ask all your family and friends to help. Out of town orders can be done online – see instructions on the back of the sheet stapled to the brochure. Orders with payments need to be turned into the office by Friday, November 1st.
Thank you in advance for your help!

Montessori and My Student
Children possess a remarkable ability to absorb the world that surrounds them. Maria Montessori believed the years from three to six are the most critical period for nurturing a child's natural curiosity and for laying the foundation for all future development. Montessori schools provide a carefully planned and stimulating environment which help the child develop an excellent foundation for future learning. The specific goals for the students who attend a Montessori school are to develop within each student a positive attitude toward school, help develop self-confidence, assist in building a habit of concentration, foster an abiding curiosity, develop habits of initiative and persistence, to foster inner security and a sense of order. For the older student, this framework is used to maintain academic competency.
