Twice a year, the Elementary students here at Montessori Children's House host two Continental Breakfast events. We invite parents to come into the classroom for an hour in the morning, enjoy food made by the students, and see what they are working on in the classroom.
During the breakfast event, children typically give their parents a "tour" of the work in their folders and binders and show them a favorite or recent work. Everyone eats from a continental breakfast spread prepared by the Elementary students, including freshly baked breakfast pastries, bagels, fresh fruit, juice and coffee. It's an informal social time for parents to connect with each other, their children's friends, and of course, the teachers.
This year, we are hosting our first Elementary Continental Breakfast on Friday, January 30 with a second one scheduled for Friday, May 1 (we'll have a May Day theme for this one!). The event starts at 9:00am and we look forward to seeing parents and preparing the breakfast menu.
Check back on this post; after the January 30th breakfast, we will update the blog with pictures from the event. Additionally, we encourage you to LIKE us on Facebook where we post pictures, video and new information daily -- another great way to connect with Montessori Children's House and see all the latest news and information.
Thank for being part of the vibrant MCH community!
As we near the close of Winter Break, it’s a great time to step back and take a look at the school year so far.
With our new building effortlessly moving into its first complete school year — and our second playground nearing completion — MCH is hitting its stride. We welcomed a handful of new teachers this year and by this point in time, students and new teachers have created a bond and establishing formative relationships.
Already MCH has welcomed some exciting after- school learning programs such as Ms. Amy’s Music Club (or Rock Star Training, as some say), ceramics, art by Ms. Michelle and Spanish lessons hosted by Sponge.
The elementary and kindergarten students have attended several art and theatrical programs such as Dick Whittington and His Cat (at Seattle Children’s Theatre) and The Nutcracker by the Pacific Northwest Ballet; the last year that the Sendak version is being performed.
As we look forward to Winter Break and 2015, we look forward to even more exciting ‘field trips’ (such as the Reptile Man and the Pacific Science Center's Outrageous Owl Exhibit), Kindergarten students preparing for their annual Tea and graduation event, and elementary students beginning their Passion Projects, where they put together an in-depth presentation about an interest of their choice.
All of us at MCH wish you and yours a very happy New Year. See you on Monday!
