With the holiday season quickly approaching I wanted to share some additions, changes, and fun we will be experiencing at NPM!
The website now has a “Parent Resources” tab which will be updated with upcoming events, contains a list of required snow apparel, and will soon have some great information about lessons children are likely coming home talking about. Please make sure, as a parent, you are checking in on this somewhat regularly 🙂
We also received our amazingly comfy beanies and adult hoodies. Our supply is quickly diminishing so if you are looking for a stocking stuffer idea or simply want to get one for yourself, get your payments in under the “Pay Here” tab or directly to the school. Also if you are struggling with gift ideas for your children (or family members are asking for ideas), I have added gift certificates to the “Pay Here” tab. There is no better gift for parents and children alike than education, instead of another item which may only hold its luster for a short period. These certificates will be printed so there is a tangible item for the children to receive.
I have reviewed our attendance and payment options and starting 2019 there are a few changes to ensure the children are getting enough time in the classroom. Along with this, I want parents to be able to receive consistent billing each month as well as have a clearer picture of funds I can use for school expenses such as staffing and maybe getting into a larger space. I know these changes may come as a shock to some, but I promise I am only making changes in the best interest of NPM and its students!
Tomorrow, Tuesday 11/20 we will be having Pie Day! This is an amazing experience my family was able to share at a different school and we loved it so much we wanted to pass along the fun. The children will spend time making their own pumpkin pies which will be ready to take home at pickup on Tuesday! Parents are welcome to attend. It should be a great day!
The month of November is quickly coming to a close and we are about to pick up all of our food donations at our various locations! The children and I are excited to sort, count, weigh, and distribute our final tally. This has been a great topic of discussion and the learning opportunities continue to grow from this event. We appreciate you for your donations if you’ve already had the chance to participate and we welcome you to get those last minute donations in as we are just about 10 days from closing it out.
Personally, I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for such an amazing start here at North Pole Montessori! We have all learned a lot together and the bonds formed just continue to grow. I appreciate each and every person who has been a part of this tremendous experience so far!
