Lunch in the Park

School parent and MSBG Board Member, Kristin Otley, had a request for donations for the school to sponsor a Lunch in the Park at the City Park to target parents and grandparents in the community and to get the word out about how awesome MSBG is. We did it! Thank you to all of you who donated. We are able to sponsor this wonderful community event.

MSBG is sponsoring the lunch on Friday, July 27 and the scheduled entertainment is MSBG parent Tim Concannon!

See you there!

GL Scrip Summer News

We will place one order of physical cards on July 6th.  I will send out a reminder to GL Scrip registered participants shortly before that deadline so you can be sure to get your order in to replenish your cards. 
In addition to the physical card order, GL Scrip offers a service called ScripNow! that delivers an electronic gift card directly to your e-mail account within minutes of ordering.  This service is available at any time, 24 hours a day throughout the school year and the summer.  You will receive the same rebate credit for these orders as you do for physical cards.  Many cards have recently been added to the ScripNow! service.  Below is a summary of the major cards that are available using ScripNow!

It’s Kroger


For all of you that receive tuition rebates through your Kroger Plus card, please note that you must RE-ENROLL each card during the month of April in order to continue benefits without interruption for the coming year.  The Kroger Community Rewards program year runs from May to May.  At the end of each year, Kroger requires that each Kroger Plus member re-establish their link to MSBG or benefits will no longer be paid.  Kroger has a designated pool of money that is given each quarter to those that are enrolled.  Because it takes many members awhile to login and re-enroll, it really benefits you to login right away and receive benefits in the 1st quarter.  The 1st quarter has historically been the largest payout per participant.  So don’t delay – re-enroll today!!!
Instructions to re-enroll your Kroger Plus Card:
1.        Go to www.kroger.com
2.       Click the sign in button on the banner near the top of the screen and enter login info
3.       Click on My Account
4.       Click on Community Rewards and select “Edit Community Rewards Information”
5.       For the 1st option, type in “80235” and hit “Search”
6.       For the 2nd item, select “Montessori School of Bowling Green”
7.       Save the changes at the bottom
8.       Enjoy your tuition rebates for another year!
If you have any questions, contact Alisa.Suelzer@gmail.com.  Also please let Alisa know if you register any new cards so that she is sure to credit your account for the rebates received.

Tanner has a blockbuster GPA and was awarded many accolades for his accomplishments across the board. The Toledo Blade even ran a feature story on him that you can read if you CLICK HERE. Tanner was accepted by the prestigious Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Indiana. 

Summer Playdates

Every Tuesday, from 10am-noon, families are getting together to play on the MSBG grounds, walk the nature trail, and have a sack lunch. This has been very fun and we hope to see you there!
(We will not be having a playdate on Tuesday, July 3 as the MSBG office will be closed that week.)

Staffing Updates
