Montessori Moment

This week we honored Election Day with a real-life voting experience for the students. An albino squirrel 
has taken up residence on the MSBG grounds, and we thought it would be fun to vote to name the squirrel. It was a bit of a nail biter, but the majority of students voted for the name “Nevada.” 

St. Martin's Day Celebration

Join us next Wednesday, the 11th, at 6:30pm, for a celebration of the international holiday St. Martin’s Day. Dress for an outdoor walk, bring your lanterns, and get ready to sing. If you’d like to hear (and practice!) the song the children have been learning for this occasion, click here. To see the words and learn more about the holiday, click here. Let’s put some colorful light into the darkness!

Parenting Workshop

You are invited to a special preview of the Parent Talk System on Wednesday, November 18 from 7-8 p.m. here at MSBG. The Parent Talk System helps parents develop positive verbal skills to effectively communicate with their children. (MSBG teachers practice these skills, too.) Learn more about the "One Minute Behavior Modifier" among other topics.
The workshop will be led by Sue DiBiasio, Montessori teacher, parent, grandparent and Parent Talk facilitator.

The students all had a fun time at the chess match on Monday at St. Al's.  We had 13 players in attendance.  Our school total was 7.5 points (6 wins, 3 draw/stalemates, 4 loses).  It was a great showing for MSBG!  And they looked great in their team t-shirts!

The next match is Monday Nov 9 at BG Middle School's Performing Arts Center (on Poe Rd).  Check-in at 4:30, matches begin at 5:00.  Good luck!
