What a great start-off to our year we have had!! October brings another busy month for all our MMCC students and staff. We start the month with school pictures on October 1-2 and our Scholastic Book fair will run from October 2-4! The Damascus Fire Department will be visiting our school on October 14-15 and we will visit the Gaver Farm Pumpkin Patch on October 21-22. We will finish the month with our Fall Pumpkin Parties on October 30-31st. Our units of study this month include fall weather and harvest time, fire safety, Community Helpers and spiders and bats, as well as the virtue of cooperation. We continue our study of Old Testament Bible stories and our Bible memory verse for the month is “This is the day that the Lord has made.”
Happy Fall everyone!!
The 2019-20 yearly calendar and the latest version of the parent handbook are now available here on the About Us page!
Montgomery Methodist asks that all students to bring a “tote-bag” style bag to school each day, as opposed to a backpack or other style bag. Their bag should have an open top that is easy to put their projects and papers in, and should be at least 10 x 12 in size with straps that allow it to be hung up. We have some available in the school office with the school name on them, which we are selling for $8.00 each, or you can purchase a similar style bag at places like AC Moore or Michaels if you prefer.
We require this style of bag to make the end of the class packing of bags easier for both the staff and the students. Having to unzip, pack, and re-zip a variety of different style and size bags and backpacks has become very time-consuming for the staff and too difficult for many of our students. As development of self-help skills is an important part of the preschool curriculum we feel the tote-bag style book bag will be be helpful for everyone involved!!
If you have any questions, please let me know!!
