Pi Day Shirt Order Forms Due Tomorrow


Pi day is "round" the corner and we hope you enjoy the shirt designed by our upper elementary class. These shirts can also be worn on Fridays with the other school T-shirts. Order forms went out Wednesday, or you can fill out an order form in the office.

In order to get our shirts back in time, please place your order by this Friday, February 24thIf anyone needs to pay later for a shirt, please fill out the form with the correct sizes and we can take payment later. We will also be ordering additional shirts to sell in future events such as Mercado for $20.  Our shirts are soft cotton and are $15 each for child and adult sizes up to large and $18 for sizes XL and above. 

All proceeds benefit upper elementary in purchasing new Montessori materials for their classrooms.  The class with the most orders will also get a Pi day party surprise. Thank you so much for your support!

Valentines/Arizona Statehood Day Tomorrow


In upper elementary, our main focus for tomorrow will be on celebrating the anniversary of Arizona as a state, but we will have a small celebration during the last 30 minutes of the day where students may bring cards and/or candy for all classmates.  It is not mandatory to bring valentines, but if your child wishes to participate, they must bring something for everyone in the class and not just one or two friends.  Please check your email for the list of students in our classroom.  We are only able to provide first names.

Tomorrow kicks off our research into Arizona state history.  We have many books already and are happy to see that the children are eager to research a wide array of topics on their own.  We may take a small group for some to get more information from the library, but this project is meant to be very simple, without the need for any display boards or props. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at any time.  We wish everyone a Happy Arizona Statehood day tomorrow!
