In The Know:

Moving up Night, Tuesday, June 7
Kindergarten at 5 p.m. and 6th Years at 6:30 p.m.
This special evening is a celebration of students moving from one Plane of Development to the next. Kindergartners are finishing what Maria Montessori named the First Plane of Development and moving into Childhood. 6th years are finishing this Second Plane of Development and moving into Adolescence. Both of these milestones will be celebrated in the child’s classroom and their families are invited. After the ceremony, the festivities continue with a slideshow and cookies in the gym. 

Graduation, Wednesday, June 8 at 6 p.m.
This ceremony recognizes the accomplishments of our 8th year graduates and takes place outdoors in the courtyard. Our entire school community including alumni are invited to attend this special event and wish our graduates farewell. After the ceremony, the festivities continue with a slideshow and a dessert reception in the gym. 

Dance of the Cosmos, June 10 at 11 a.m.
This tradition at TCH has been in place since the school was founded in 1984. The students shine in this celebration: a recognition of the importance of each of them in our community. Also recognized are the children who have completed their classroom cycle. All parents, grandparents, and alumni are invited. Arrive as early as 10:3
