All orders are due into the front office no later than TUESDAY, MARCH 20th by 3:00pm.
Also, the PTO would like to thank all the parents who have signed up to provide meals to the teachers during conferences! There are still a few spots left, so if you are able and willing, the sign-up sheet is located in the foyer.

Staff Spotlight

“Miss Sarah” Porter
Early Childhood (3-6 year old)

Sarah is originally from Medina, Ohio and she was a student teacher at MSBG in 2008-2009.  For two years, she was an Early Childhood Teacher at a Montessori school in Streetsboro, Ohio until returning to MSBG this year.  Sarah holds her Bachelor of Science degree in Education and is licensed in Early Childhood Education (PreK-3) with a Reading Endorsement (PreK-3). She completed her Montessori training at the North American Montessori Center and received her International Montessori diploma in 2010. Sarah states, “Aside from all the practical life activities, I would say that my favorite Montessori materials are the color boxes as well as the sandpaper letters with object boxes.”

Chess News
The Montessori School of Bowling Green played at the 2012 Ohio Girls Chess Championships last Saturday near Cleveland.  Thirty-five girls representing 18 schools competed at the event.
Winning 2nd Place among Ohio's Unrated K-5 players was the team of Yeowoon Jung, Isabelle Broman and Hannah Mathey. Despite having only 3 players, Jung, Broman and Mathey combined to score a total 9 points on the day.  A change in rules at the last minute allowed the girls to play together as a single team.  Nevertheless MSBG was outpaced be Hersey Montessori who had 4 players on their team.
Yeowoon Jung was also recognized for finishing in 2nd Place as an individual in the Unrated 3-5 Section with a score of 4 points.
Congratulations to all 3 Montessori chess players! 

Today there is a home Chess Match beginning at 4:30pm at MSBG.
