October has been busy with many fall activities. It’s so exciting to see the children building new friendships. The Halloween Parade was lots of fun! It was neat to see everyone (including our teachers) dressed up. Thanks to all parents and families that attended our back to school night. It was a great benefit to new and existing parents to come in and witness all the hard work and beautiful themes that the children and teachers have put together to make this wonderful event possible!
Throughout the school year we ask parents to participate in our Snack host program by providing a snack for their class’ morning or afternoon snack. Sign-ups are found on each classroom’s bulletin board. Thank you for your help!
September Recap: We are excited to start the new 2018-2019 academic school year! We would like to welcome all Little Acorn Montessori new and existing children and parents. The theme for the month of September is all about me! The children are getting to know each other by making friends. They are learning and making crafts about themselves and what makes them so special. The children are discussing family trees with their teachers as well as having discussions on extended family and friends.
Summer Recap: We had a great and productive summer program! All the children loved all the fun filled activities. We had in house field trips such as Stoil the magician and a visit from the Alhambra Fire Department discussing fire and safety. The children were super excited about the animal petting zoo visit that took place during our Carnival. Thank you to all staff for making this year’s carnival such a great success. Thank you also to all the parents and children that attended this great event! Throughout the summer months the children really enjoyed water play, dance, music, sports, arts/crafts and much more.
The month of June will be educational and informative. Lessons on Transportation and California will be highlighted. Specific topics will include: the timeline of transportation as a Montessori history lesson, California Geography, animals, famous landmarks, and exploring California culture. In the art activity, children will be creating Father’s Day gifts which everyone will enjoy. Please RSPV for our Graduation performance later this month. Invitations and letters regarding the ceremony and performance were sent out last week.
We are looking forward to a wonderful end to this school year and exciting Summer Program. As always, if you have any questions or concern, please see the office. Thank you!
