June was such an amazing month! We have completed another school year. The children have accomplished so much. On behalf of Little Acorn Montessori Academy, we would like to congratulate our graduates! We wish them the best of luck as they move on to the next grade level! Thank you, parents, for all your support throughout the school year! This year was a success because of your participation, big and small.
May was a month full of special events. A big thank you to all the families for the generous gifts, food, and beautiful flowers you brought in during Teacher Appreciation Day! We really appreciate everything you do for all of us here at Little Acorn. Mother’s Day was a great turn out. It was so nice to see all moms spending the morning with their children. The children were super excited to give their moms gifts that they worked so hard on! They ended the month of May witnessing the caterpillars they all had in their classes turn into beautiful butterflies!
In April each class celebrated Spring in their own creative way by creating beautiful crafts such as baskets, bunnies, egg painting and egg dying. The most exciting highlight of the week was egg hunting. Please look for pictures of your children on their class pages on the website. Thank you all for your participation in our Book Fair this year! We sold $1000 worth of books. The school receives 50% off that money in Scholastic Books. Each teacher will order new books for your child’s classroom. Thank you again for all your support!
Spring is in the air! In the month of March, the children had fun learning and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Many children participated in wearing their green for the day. In addition to learning about the holiday, there were many arts and crafts that the children created. They even had a surprise visit from Lenny the Leprechaun! The children also started planting seeds outside in their garden. We will look forward to growing tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, strawberries, and zucchini this year.
We celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday on fourth of March by reading his books. The children were super excited, Ms. Amanda dressed up as Dr. Seuss during story time. Children in our preprimary and primary classes have been enjoying their new playground structure, music wall, and tree stumps. They all love to jump and climb!
