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.
To celebrate Halloween, Primary, Elementary, and Middle School students participate in the annual costume parade on Tuesday, October 31 at 8:45 am (Toddler children do not participate in the parade). Parents are invited to stay for the parade after drop-off. The children will walk around the semi-circle with their class. Following the parade, Mr. Mitnick will lead a short sing along for Primary and Lower Elementary students and parents. Middle School students will head off on their annual bike trip.
Primary children should wear their costumes over their clothes so that they can easily be removed after the parade, while Elementary children can *bring *clothes in a bag to change into after the parade. We request that costumes are tasteful and do not restrict a child’s movement. No masks or play weapons of any sort, please!(Toddler students will not wear costumes.)
You can drop your child off as usual or feel free to park your car and walk your child into the building. (We ask you park in either the lower lot or at the church lot adjacent to ours. We would like to keep the upper lot open for our Toddler families so they can walk their little ones into the building.) Upon arrival, students should proceed to their classroom. Parents are welcome to have a cup of coffee in the main foyer while waiting for the parade to start.
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.
