the occasion with a snack party and the students
are encouraged to dress in red, pink, or purple.

talents of our American heroes.
Presidents’ Day honors all past presidents of the United
States. The third Monday of February has been fittingly
selected to commemorate the birthdays of George
Washington, the first President, and Abraham Lincoln,
the 16th president who dedicated his life to preserving
the Union. The school will be closed on Monday,
February 15 in observance of Presidents’ Day.
Used Book Donations
Reading to children is one of the most effective
ways for strong cognitive development. Our
Montessori program includes a rigorous reading
program, and our teachers are always in search of
exciting books to read to the class. We strongly
encourage our parents to donate their child’s used
books to our class library.
