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.

Middle School Science Fair
Middle School students shared their month-long science experiments with parents, elementary students, and PCTE trainees at the Science Fair. Students selected an idea to test based on their individual interests, and worked in class to design a project and form a hypothesis to test the idea. Students identified independent variables, controlled variables, and dependent variables, wrote detailed procedures, and conducted their experiments. When finished, they added their results, as well as their research and recommendations, to their project boards. The students did a great job and their projects covered a wide range of topics.
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.
