Montessori Moment: 

What a great first week! It was an extraordinary experience to meet all our new students and see all the friendly faces who have been part of our school for many years. Joy, excitement and sunshine permeated our whole school all week!


Our Elementary students had four full days. Statements like, "I'm so happy to be here!" "I can't wait to get to work" and "I can't wait to walk the trail!" were heard all week. This article outlines the unparralleled opportunity that our elementary program offers.

Library News from Miss Stephanee

Welcome back to school students and parents! Hope your summer was wonderful and peaceful.

Our school library is a full lending library with selections of books and movies to suit all age groups. 

There is a special parent section available which is not in the library proper, but straight ahead past the library, toward the early childhood classrooms. The parent section has many books on Montessori methods and outcomes; biographies of Maria Montessori; parenting strategies and even music CD's containing songs sung in classrooms. Please feel free to check out anything that looks interesting by filling out a yellow form and bringing it to the library. When returning the information, please bring it back to the library.

The library is open during all school hours, but not always attended by the Librarian. There are purple forms on the desk, fill in all information and you have checked out. When returning, please place book in the cart next to the door.

We strive to keep our collections up to date and interesting; we are accepting and grateful for donations of books, technology and family-friendly movies. Please take some time to check out this wonderful asset of MSBG!
