Parent Talk Class

Thursday evenings
February 23-March 29
Childcare Available
This six-week class is back by popular demand!  The Parent Talk System is a style of communicating with children that creates emotionally healthy family relationships. It is a skill-based program that teaches parents a series of verbal skills and language patterns to help them achieve their desired objective of raising responsible, respectful children while reducing stress, strain, and family conflict. Come learn the 10 Best and the 10 Worst things you can say to your child. This course is designed for children of all ages! Parents of preschoolers through teenagers will find this course extremely helpful. CLICK HERE for the registration form.


The Montessori School of Bowling Green was the first school in Ohio to be accredited by the American Montessori Society, demonstrating our achievement in reaching each national standard. MSBG is currently undergoing our third re-accreditation process.
Would you like to be part of the re-accreditation process?
We are looking for individuals who are interested in report writing, data collection, research and observation. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our school and assist in our strategic planning process. Please contact msbg@montessorischoolbg.org

Prime Time Reading Night

We are planning a special event to celebrate the love of reading. Friday Night Prime Time is an overnight reading event for the 3rd-6th grade students and will be held on Friday evening, March 2, 2012. Its purpose is to encourage students to read by
providing the time to read and by combining reading with other enjoyable activities. Of course, the more your children read, the better readers they will become. Students across the country who have participated in Friday Night Prime Time have shown an increased interest in reading. This is an exciting event!
