September 2017 Newsletter

September is here, preparations have been made for the new school year, and I look forward to seeing the children and hearing about the fun things they did during the summer.

To help keep the children in the school healthy, please make sure your child washes their hands as soon as they arrive. Now we have a sink in the classroom for that purpose. This month Mrs. Hannan and I will be showing and encouraging the children to cough and sneeze into their elbows.

Pictures and other work that your child does during the morning will be put in their basket by the door, and can go home as you leave.

It is exciting to see how quickly the children adapt and make new friends. To help build a tight knit school community, you will be receiving an email directory of the families in the school so you can plan play dates.

We are a small school and would appreciate help purchasing snack foods and other necessary supplies. At the beginning of each month I will post a donation list on the bulletin board behind the door. Please initial any items you donate, to keep the list up to date through the month. Several copies of the list will be set beside the parent file for you to take, mark, and use as a reminder. Thank you for your help.

Tuition is due before the 5th of each month. I will send a reminder email at the end of each month. Please contact Rhonda or myself, if for some reason you may need a little more time.

In the classroom, there are some Crossridge Montessori brochures to pass out to any parents looking for a school. If you refer the school to someone and their child comes to our school, we will give you a $100 credit on your tuition.

On the Horizon:

Wednesday, September 27th @ 11:30 – we will visit the Apple orchard at Oregon Heritage Farm on Scholl's Ferry Rd. The cost will be $5.00 per student. We will start with a hay ride and then eat our lunches under their covered eating area. There are animals to look at, an Apple Jump House, and a corn maze to walk through. Watch for more information.

At the end of October, we will visit Koch Family Farms, and the children will have a chance to find the perfect pumpkin. More information coming soon.

Crossridge Montessori is on Facebook. Look us up when you get a chance, then like us, and follow us.

It is going to be a great year.

For His Glory,

Sharon Brookens
