What’s Happening Right Now…

Venessa’s Primary:  PII students sit on the rug for a lesson on opposites.  A student is concentrating on a water mixing work.  Primary colors are poured together to make secondary colors.  Another student is using colored clay to make a model of the layers of the earth.  The class is getting in the mood for summer with a new hydro wheel work.

Upper Elementary: Students write letters of gratitude. One student writes a letter to the sun expressing his gratitude for its gifts of energy and light. Several other students glaze their honey pots and prepare them to be fired. Four students practice their Honeypot Award presentation.

Amanda’s Primary:  A work of Spanish colors catches a student’s eye; they write their own labels with colored pencils that correspond to the words, “rojo, verde, morado…”.  A third year student carefully balances as they step one foot in front of the other.  They step quietly off of the balance beam and gestures to a younger friend, a silent understanding that the work is now available.

Lower Elementary: One shoe on and one shoe off on the table.  Friends are writing a descriptive paragraph about their senses to describe their shoe.  “I can use my senses to describe my shoes”.  Another friend says, “I can close my eyes to feel my shoe or maybe I should draw it first!”. One friend asks how a word is spelled, another suggests they check a dictionary.

Infant:  An infant pushes a purple ball into a hole in a wooden box and looks amazed when it seems to disappear.   A guide, sitting nearby on the floor, shows the child that a drawer on the front of the box opens.   The child looks down and sees the purple ball again.   They smile, pick up the ball, drop it, and pick it up again.   The process repeats, beginning with the child pushing the purple ball back into the hole.

 Toddler: Two toddlers walk around the playground, each carrying a wet rag.   One child walks to a table and wipes it from top to bottom.   The second friend walks to the fence and bends down to begin cleaning.  Once the fence is “done”, the children come back together to decide what their next project should be.   The two agree on the windows and get straight to work.

Infant Formula Drive for our friends in Venezuela!

One of our staff members has shared a specific need with us.  Erika Tate’s infant nephew’s family lives in El Tigre, Venezuela.

Many young mothers in this tiny village, do not normally breast feed.  (Little training or support) and there is a severe shortage of infant and toddler formula. 

Because of the political and economic crisis occurring in this region of the world right now, Central Montessori School is requesting donations of infant and baby formula and cash contributions to help cover shipping costs.  

We would like to help with this if we can. 

Recommended Donation:

·          $5 to cover costs of shipping

·          Pack of pre-mixed, shelf-stable formula or cans of dried formula

Collection Centers

·          Central Montessori School Infant and Toddler Center @ 2107 Jefferson Ave.

·          Central Montessori School main campus, front office @ 323 N. 20th Street, RVA 2223

If you feel that you can set up a collection center, please let us know.  Please feel free to post this message on Social Media.  This is slated to be an on-going effort.  For the month of June:  Donations of formula will be eligible for V hour exchange for enrolled Montessori parents.

There is really a lot of events happening at Montessori. It seems that the Vanessa primary students are getting excited and ready for summer. The upper elementary seems so do extra- curricular activities. Amanda's primary students are more inclined to international studies. The Infant and toddler are just enjoying their time as children.

I feel that I can set up a collection center!
