Happy November from all of us at MMCC! Fall is in full swing this month as we celebrate a month of “Giving Thanks” for all our many blessings! We celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving and learn about the first celebration many years ago. Friendship is our virtue of the month and our Bible memory verse is from Psalms: “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good” Our Pre-K 4′s classes have a unit on healthy foods and have field trips to the Weis Market in Mt. Airy. Parent/Teacher conferences are held this month and each class celebrates Thanksgiving with a special buffet the class before the holidays as well. What a busy and fun month at Montgomery Methodist!
Thanksgiving Blessings from our family to yours!
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!!
