Montessori Friday Features

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! We are honored to be partners with you!
This year marks our 35th school year and gives us pause to honor our past and look ahead to our bright future.

1. Diversity: diversity of our population and the curriculum we study.
2. Joy: joyous learning each day; children loving to learn.
3. Growth: embarking with each child on their journey of growth.

Earn Free Tuition Money in Two Easy Ways!
Hello GL Scrip participants!
I hope you all had a wonderful summer.  I wanted to let you all know that I plan to place the first order of physical cards for the school year on Monday, August 18th at 8:00am.  Please have you orders in the system in by that time.  They will then be ready for pickup in the school office after 9:00am on Thursday, August 21st.  We will then resume weekly orders going forward.  (orders in on Mondays at 8, pickup on Thursdays after 9)
Please note that whenever there is a Monday holiday (Labor Day, Memorial Day, etc.), I will place the order on Tuesday morning at 8:00am instead and pickup will be on Friday.
Please let me know if you have any questions about GL Scrip.  Welcome back and happy shopping!
