Thank you very much to everyone that came out in support of KMS at our Chapter’s Fundraising evening last week. $561 was raised for the school which is fantastic news! We also received many wonderful books from our community, and the teachers are happily adding them to their classroom shelves! Thank you to PEG for organising, thank you to those that volunteered their time to run the event, and thank you again to you. KMS thrives because of your continuing support.
Important events coming up:
Picture Day tomorrow (Tuesday October 23rd) – Individual and Class Photos
Take Me Outside Day (Wednesday October 24th) – We are outside as much as possible, however we want to honour Take Me Outside Day! From 2:15 pm-3:15 pm, the Upper Elementary students will be leading the younger students through a series of outdoor games and activities. Fun! (The MS students will be participating in a Mental Health Session)
PA Day (Friday October 26th) Enjoy your weekend!
As a school, the decision was made to try something new this year and reverse our lunch time with our outdoor recess time. We have now come to know that this reversal has not been as beneficial a transition for our students as was thought. Therefore, starting Monday, we will be going back to our original schedule of whole school recess from 11:45 am – 12:20 pm and lunch from 12:25 pm – 1:00 pm. This change will not affect hot lunches.
We have upcoming events that you won’t want to miss!
Today and Tomorrow (instead of Friday): BOOK GIVEAWAY! Books will be set up in the halls until tomorrow at pick up time. Come have a look!
Tonight from 5-8 pm: CHAPTER’S NIGHT! Come get some shopping done and support KMS at the same time. We appreciate it!
Friday at pick up time: UE BAKE SALE! Bring a container and snatch up some tasty homemade treats! All money will go towards the UE end of the year trip.
Saturday from 10 am-Noon: PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE! Word of mouth is a strong tool. Please let someone know about this event that you think might be interested!
When: Wednesday October 5-8 pm (Tomorrow)
Where: Chapter’s Peterborough (873 Lansdowne Street West)
Join us at Chapters this Wednesday for a great night to get a jump start on your holiday shopping. As a not-for-profit organization we appreciate your support. Just say you are supporting Kawartha Montessori at the cashier and 15% of all eligible sales will come back to our school!!
As you may know, we are holding our first Public Open House of the school year this Saturday from 10 am – Noon. We are proud of the authentic Montessori education and philosophy we provide our students, and we thank you as always for believing in what we do for your children. Word of mouth and referrals are powerful tools for getting our message out into the larger community. If you know anyone that you think may be interested in attending, we ask you to please forward our invitation. Let us know if someone will be coming because you spoke with them so we can thank you!
Our Upper Elementary teacher Kristina, has been working hard to clean up our main library, and has now compiled a number of older and duplicate books appropriate for grades 4-8. She would like these books to be available to our school community for free before she donates them to a charity. These books will be out on display next Thursday the 18th and Friday the 19th at pick up time. Please help yourself!
Due to our awesome Fall Fun Fair happening tomorrow, after school care will not be offered. If you are unable to attend the Fair, your child will need to be picked up at the regular dismissal time.
Thank you and we hope to see you at the Fair tomorrow!
