Hello Parents,

We hope you enjoyed the long weekend and maybe some extra time off for Spring Break!

Last week all the classrooms were excited for Spring and Easter and enjoyed art projects and Egg Hunts!

This week our new security system takes effect.  Please read this note from Ms. Geanine:

“Starting on Monday, April 2nd, we will be launching our new entrance procedure. On Monday, the outside doors will be locked. You will need to use the key pad for entrance. Each parent will have their own individual code to enter the building. Your new code is the same as your sign in code for attendance, using the last 4 digits of your phone number. For example, if you use 1234 to sign your child in, you would use 1234# to enter the building. Again, don’t forget to press the # key as well. The second set of doors entering the building will now be unlocked and will not require a code for entry. 

To exit the building, you would press the green button on the wall, then open the door. 

Please remember, if you enter the incorrect code or forget the # key the door will not open and will take several seconds to reset. Also, this process does not eliminate the sign in/out process on the iPads. Please remember to continue to sign your child in and out daily. 

Thank you for working with us as we improve security here at Novi Woods Montessori, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me or Mrs. Dee.”

Remember, we are closed on Friday for Parent Teacher Conferences.  Schedules for Conferences are with your teacher.  Please sign up for a time slot so you can review your child’s classroom progress.  Report Cards will be distributed and explained on this day.

Please complete Summer and Fall Registrations.  Registration is now open to everyone and certain classrooms (such as Toddler) will fill up fast.

This week the preschoolers continued to study Europe.  They also worked on learning about butterflies, and started making a book about the parts of an insect.

Parents remember to sign in and out.  Our software is now set up to recognize when your child is signed in outside of their normal schedule and will be automatically billing you for those times (there is a bit of a grace period!)  For example, if your child is 8:30-11:30 and they stay until 12:15, you will be automatically charged $5/hour.  If you pick up your child after 6:00 pm, you will be charged $1/minute.

Registration for Summer and Fall is now online.  We will have some paper copies available if you’d prefer that.  Please see the office.  If you encounter any problems with the registration process, have any billing or tuition or Sandbox questions, please email Amanda at novimontessori@gmail.com.

Summer Registration is open to everyone!  In summer, our tuition is charged weekly so you can pick and choose your weeks based on your schedule.  When registering, select all the weeks you think you’ll be coming.  Then, give us a 2 week notice of any changes!  There is no registration fee for current students.

Fall Registration is only open to our current families for the rest of this month!  We do fill up each year with a wait list, so please don’t hesitate to register.  Beginning April 1, we will accept registrations from everyone.  **Current families will receive a 2% discount on tuition if you register and pay your registration fee by May 1**  The Registration fee is $100 and is due for all students.  Next year, all in-house programs/guests are included in your tuition and we won’t be charging separately for those.  Any big field trips we take will be separate.

Referral Credit!  Please tell your friends about Novi Woods!  If you refer a family that enrolls with us, we will give you a $50 credit on your next invoice.

It’s hard to believe it’s March already!

Thank you for being patient while we update the security system at school.  Soon, you will need your own 4 digit code to enter the building.  This code will be the same as the code you use to check your child in.  Ms. Geanine will let everyone know when these codes are active.  Until then, please keep using our current system.

 

Classroom News

February was Black History Month and we learned about famous African-Americans such as scientists, athletes and more.  This month we also focused on the continent of Africa, learning about music, food, culture and geography!

Each class talked about community helpers like firemen, doctors, police, construction workers and more.  We also learned about dental hygiene!

On President’s day classes learned about presidents Lincoln and Washington and they did some coloring and crafts.

Wild animals/rain forest rounded out our month and we will continue with rain forest this  next week.

March is reading month!  Make sure you read to your child each night.   This past Friday we learned about Dr. Seuss and read some of his books.

This month we focus on the continent of Europe.  We will also celebrate St. Patrick’s day.

Our other themes for this month include insects, plants & flowers, spring and parts of a turtle.

We want to welcome some new teachers to our school in the past couple of months– pictures will be posted soon!

Hello Parents,

What an eventful January we have had. First, we would like to say thank you to all of the parents who participated in our annual Peace Day. The event was great and the children learned about taking the right road to peace and letting their lights shine for others to see. We have been very busty this January, please enjoy our slide show from Peace Day and classroom activities from all classes.
