Last week one of our former Novi Woods Montessori student’s visited the school to get a high school graduation photo in front of our sign.  Linda Weng was a student in Miss Evelyn’ class starting as a toddler.  We are always excited when old students come back.  It shows how memorable a time the children have at Novi Woods and we love seeing our old students. Linda will be going to the University of Michigan next year and studying engineering.  We wish her the best of luck and know she has a bright future ahead!!!
