In January, we are diving into the cold season! The children will have discussions about winter, snow, ice, winter hibernation, animals, and Antarctica. There will be a focus on Martin Luther King Jr. as the holiday approaches. The children will pick up where they left off in their Montessori and academic works.
There will be a few new students joining Little Acorn upon returning from the break and a few that will be leaving and moving away late January. They will be missed dearly but we wish the families nothing but the best of luck!
Just a reminder that extraocular activities classes will resume Tuesday, January 2. Amazing Athletes, Petite Feet will start back up in the New Year. Tiny Tykes will begin classes early February. Chinese language class will begin in January once we have six children enrolled. Look out for flyers to sign-up by the back-door entrance.
Parents please remember to sign your child in and out daily at the Procare station as it is a licensing requirement. If you are having trouble using the Procare station, please let the office know.
School Holidays and closures:

The office would like to thank you for the generous gifts you left.
Happy Holidays Little Acorn Families! In December, the children have been wrapping up their academic work and Montessori lessons. The teachers have been working hard to make December fun with holiday activities as well. The children discussed and learned about Celebrations around the world. We enjoyed having a fun holiday week before we headed out for the winter break. The children had so much fun preparing and singing for their recital. Thank you to all the parents that attended our winter Recital!
We had great success with Hathaway-Sycamore Child and Family Services! Thank you to all who had an opportunity to grab a tag off our tree this year. We will be looking forward to other opportunities in helping our community during the coming year.
November was a very eventful month for our school and classrooms. Classes spent time discussing what they are thankful for and how to be helpful to others. We had a great turn out for our Thanksgiving potluck, thank you to everyone who contributed to the classroom feasts. We have come to an end with our See’s Candies fundraiser. The school is excited to see how much was raised! Proceeds will go towards playground improvements.
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.
