We have a lot of exciting things coming up in the next 6 weeks. Can you believe we only have 6 weeks left?? Holy cow, this year seriously flew by!
Here are the BIG events coming up involving school-wide activities:
April 15th- Malawi Children's Village Fundraiser - KEEP Collective and Jamberry items will be on sale in the library. All commissions from the sales will be added to our overall fundraising efforts for our sister school. We have a ton of awesome jewelry and nail wraps, just in time for Mother's Day and graduations! Interested but can't make it? Shoot me an email and I'll give you the information and you can check it our from home.
May 8th- The Montessori Gala will be at the Anchorage Museum again this year. We are currently looking for donations from companies within the community. I have already secured Guardian Security, Amber's Olive Company, and Bagoy's Florist. Do you have any connections within the community that may be interested in donating an item for our auction? As a class we are putting together a Breakfast Basket! Thank you to Chloe and family for sending in pancake mix and jelly already! I'm also asking that each student send in a family-favorite breakfast recipe. We will compile this and illustrate them to create an awesome classroom recipe book to include in our basket! Thank you to Benjamin and Aden for bringing that in already!
Here are some ideas for donations to our basket that the kids brainstormed:
Cookie cutters (think fun egg shapes!)
Gift cards to grocery stores
Our first field trip of the 7 that are scheduled for the remainder of the year is coming up quickly! Next week, April 24th, we will be walking downtown to the Railroad Depot to take a short train ride over to Westchester Lagoon and back. Immediately after that, April 28th, we are going to the PAC to watch The Gruffalo's Child! Thank you to our wonderful chaperones for making this happen!
We are wrapping up our Africa research in class and the kids are busy preparing for their presentations. Please talk to your child about what they are doing for their visual and food/music sample for the day of the family presentation. This is a requirement for all students; the visual can be a clothing sample, poster, photos, an artifact or anything else! They also need to provide a food sample from their country or music sampling. We will be inviting you to attend the presentation that will take place on May 13th. Time has yet to be decided.
Thank you for all of your support. I know that we are hitting you up a lot right now for money for field trips, fundraisers, yearbooks and more. We so appreciate all that you're able to do and contribute!
