Principal's Weekly Message

Dear Parents and Community Members,

The American Montessori Society Conference in San Diego was absolutely awesome!

23 teachers and staff members from our campus were able to attend. Everyone had a great time attending the workshops and buying new classroom materials.

Teachers were excited to share their experiences and what they learned during our last Early Release Professional Development Day and in the next ones coming up.

On another note, Spring Conferences are next week and we hope that all of you are able to meet up with the teachers. They are looking forward to sharing your child’s progress with you.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

2017-2018 Enrollment


Lottery Tours:  We have completed our lottery tours for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year and have given lottery applications to families that attended any of our tours and to siblings of current families.

If we find we need to add another lottery tour this year, please visit our website again to check and we will take on line sign ups if we are adding another tour.  

Kindergarten lottery applications must be turned in no later than March 20th to be considered for the Kindergarten Lottery Pull scheduled for March 27th.  1st-8th grade lottery applications must be turned in no later than April 17th to be considered for the 1st-8th grade lottery pull which is the last lottery pulled scheduled for April 24th.

 **Please note if a child has attended a certified Montessori school prior to entering the this year’s lottery, a Montessori Verification Form is required to accompany the lottery application and must be signed by the director of the school:  Montessori Verification Form 2017-2018  This form is also available at the front office.  A child must have attended a complete year of the Montessori school to be considered “Montessori eligible”.

Gardening Corner

Spring cleaning is underway in our school garden!

The middle school community recently removed weeds along the fence, around the butterfly and citrus gardens and along the path around the garden beds.

Now we are looking for a donation of decomposed granite and bark to cover the cleared areas. There is a nearby rock yard that makes deliveries, as an option.

These gifts would allow the children to develop a pride from caring for their garden environment.

Please contact Ms. Rebecca, Garden Coordinator, if you are willing to help in this way.  If you are interested in taking on any of these roles or have questions, please email Ms. Rebecca, Garden Coordinator at

2016-2017 Early Release Day Calendar

Here is a complete list of Early Release Days for 2016-2017.  It is strongly recommended families take advantage of early release days to schedule doctor and dental appointments or make appointments during intersession breaks.  Thank you for your consideration as time in the classroom with the teacher and peers is critical to your child's success at school.

2016-2017 Early Release Days  


March Theme "Compassion & Kindness"

March is the month each class will focus on the character traits "Compassion & Kindness" and think of ways we can all show compassion and kindness to one other at school and away from school.  Take some time at home to share ways your family shows compassion and kindness to each other.
