On Wednesday, July 25, 2018, Primary children will visit the Princeton Art Museum. The purpose of the trip is three-fold: to expose the children to real art, to teach them art museum etiquette, and to inspire their creativity.
On this day, students will depart from school at 9:30 am and arrive back to school at 11:15 am. They will have lunch upon their return.
We will not be visiting the gift shop. Please do not send money with your child. The trip will take place rain or shine. If it is raining, the children will need raincoats; please do not bring umbrellas.
What to bring/wear:
- Wear comfortable walking shoes (no flip flops)
- Wear raincoats as needed (no umbrellas)
Please submit your permission by Monday, July 23rd.
Thursday, October 26, 8:45 – 10:00am OR 7:00 - 8:30pm
Bringing Montessori Home
Authentic Montessori education is the most powerful way for children to learn. It encompasses a culture that is innovative, respectful of the child, peaceful, joyful, collaborative, child-centered, community- minded, developmentally exacting, and supported by research. Parents don’t need to create a Montessori classroom, but they can observe, use appropriate language and allow the child to have freedom within limits. Learn how to bring some of these techniques into the spaces around your home and develop strategies for nurturing a healthy independence in your child.
We are offering two sessions this year, to allow more options for our busy families to attend. Come out and enjoy mingling, sharing snacks, and stimulating discussion!
