All parents are invited!
Back to School Night provides an opportunity for parents to experience the life of their child in the course of a school day, learn more about curriculum, procedures, and practices, and get to know the teaching staff and fellow parents better. It is an event for parents, which includes a short presentation in children’s classrooms, followed by a social gathering for parents and teachers.
This year we are offering a new program for 5th through 8th grade students for the week after school ends.
This is a great way to bridge the time between the academic year and the summer and a nice compliment to the week which currently runs for younger students. The week is designed specifically for the Upper Elementary and Middle School aged child and will combine learning and a fun social outlet.
Details of the Week – Mornings will focus on math and verbal SSAT prep (SSAT tests are required for independent high school admissions), and afternoons will be spent on short film creation led by Mr. Mitnick. Each day, the students will decide on a local lunch establishment from which to order lunch, adding to the fun of the week. (Note that a specific book purchase is required for SSAT prep).
We also know that friends make it more fun. This session is not limited to PMonts families. We welcome enrollment from outside our PMonts community. Why not encourage a friend to enroll too?
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.
