Montessori Moment

Montessori Middle School Offers Unique Approach to Test Preparation

Today, our middle school welcomes guest speaker, Holly Dunn, for a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) seminar.  Mindfulness is an evidenced-based practice of "paying attention in a particular way for a certain purpose."  It is a way of being that promotes patience, non-judgment, and consciousness.  To read more, click HERE.


Join us for our quarterly meeting this coming Tuesday at 6:30pm!

We are in the process of making lanterns for St. Martin's Day. If you eat Brie, please buy a box (preferably the 16- or 20-oz size) and save the rigid round container for us. It will become part of a lantern! (For more information about our St. Martin's Day celebration, click here.)
Shop at Ben Franklin in BG on Nov. 5 or 6 with the MSBG coupon (or click HERE) you received in your child's mailbox, and Ben Franklin will return 15% of what you spend to our school. This is a great opportunity to raise money for CAPE while supporting a local business. (They will have more coupons at the store, too, for you or your friends and family!)
The Montessori Gala is our school's largest fundraiser and will be held this year on February 21, 2015 at Stone Ridge Golf Club. It is a wonderful opportunity for parents, friends and community members to gather, enjoy the evening, and raise awareness & funds for our amazing school. A lot of planning must go into this event & we would love your help! The first planning meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 6 from 8:45am to 9:30am in the foyer. Come with any ideas or inspirations you have to make this event the best fundraiser yet! Contact Kate with any questions.
