This week: Our Casa students relished in the bounty of the season and made homemade apple juice using a cider press. Making our own fresh and tasty beverage with our own 2 hands was so exciting! Grinding Gala, Courtland and MacIntosh apples and then turning the crank to grind the fruit into a pulp was a highlight of the week! Delish!
Casa students also took pride in participating in a whole school Thanksgiving ceremony outdoors. We all have so much to be thankful for!
Next week: We will be having visitors from the Otonabee-South Monaghan Fire Department to teach us about fire safety.
Our school is hosting a public Open House on Sat., Oct. 21 and invite you to spread the word to any friends or family members that are looking for an accredited Montessori program for their children.
Tip of the week: As pesky cough and cold season is upon us, we remind families how important it is for students to get extra sleep, drink plenty of water and protect themselves and others from germs. Practice blowing noses by keeping the germs contained in a kleenex, and then washing hands thoroughly with soap and water afterwards. This may seem obvious, but little people need lots of practice and reminders to trap cough and sneeze germs in their elbow to keep everyone healthy!
