Spirit Wear: online order deadline is September 23
What better way to show your school spirit than to wear it! Simply browse our online catalog and place your order with Threads. When your order is ready (about three weeks after the deadline), we will send it home with your child.

Can Drive
The sixth year students are earning money to pay for our Montessori Model United Nations trip to New York. Wednesday mornings at car line there will be a Returnable Can Drive. If you have any cans or bottles, we would love it if you would donate them!  -Sixth Year Class 2019-2020
