November Recap and December News.
November was filled with so much joy and thankfulness. Our See’s Candy Fundraiser was a great success! We look forward to the new additions to our playground. We want to thank all our parents for your time attending our Parent/teacher conferences. They were very informative for parents and teachers and are always a great opportunity for a one-on-one conversation. Our goal is to provide a positive and successful educational experience for each child by developing a relationship between school and home. Our Harvest Feast was a joy. We have the most wonderful families here at Belltower Montessori and we are beyond thankful to all of you.
The children were busy learning to fill a bucket in each classroom by reading Fill a Bucket by Carol McCloud and Katherine Martin. Being kind and helpful to others is a very important part of the Belltower culture. We embrace the mixed aged groups and used this as an opportunity for the children to share their knowledge and expertise when someone was in need. We always encourage the children to assist one another and to look to others for help. This enables us to build a strong foundation for our growing children. Share day is a day for the children to connect school and home by bringing in an item from home to share with their friends. This gives them the opportunity to speak in front of a group and share personal stories and experiences. The children are truly enjoying our Enrichment program. Spanish and cooking are a huge hit. Their favorite cooking activity was the pumpkin fluff with graham crackers and whipped cream.
December will be filled with activities. We are excited for the upcoming Holiday performances. Each classroom will perform individually and will be held in person the week of Dec. 13th. Progress reports will be distributed on Dec. 10th so please check your child’s backpack or papers sent home that day. Our annual spirit week will be held the week of December 20th. Each day will have a different theme. You can find the themes listed in the December Newsletter. We will also send a list of the themes home with your child. We look forward to your participation. We will be participating in the annual Spark of Love Toy Drive. If you would like to donate, please bring in an unwrapped toy by Wed. Dec 15th and drop it in the box by the office. Please feel free to share your families holiday traditions with your child’s class as this will be a topic of discussion. We hope to see our Belltower families enjoy the holidays. We will be closed for Winter break from December 24th through Jan 3rd. We will return on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, ready to start a new year!
