As you know, the children have an opportunity every day to share something with their classmates as a group. March and April is their opportunity to share you! We would greatly welcome you and/or your child to share something about you. This might include an occupation, hobby, culture, or special passion/tradition that your family practices! Your presentation does not need to be long...remember the attention span of your audience! One half hour is suggested to be the maximum amount of time for your presentation. Please call the office to submit your topic and schedule your day. We look forward to hearing from you!
Believe it or not the end of the year is right around the corner. And with it comes our graduation ceremony at the Columbus Zoo. The day is set aside for us to say thank you to all our families for a wonderful year, and all families are invited. However, the focus is on those children who will be leaving us and entering into first grade. These are our graduates and they are being acknowledged for completing a path and being ready to step into the next adventure…First Grade!
The only children who participate in the ceremony are those who are actually going onto first grade. You will find this explained in your Handbook and it is quoted as follows:
A graduation ceremony is held at the end of May. The participants are students who have completed their kindergarten course of study at Dublin Montessori and are advancing to first grade. The number of years the child spends in the school is inconsequential, whether it is two, three or four. The ceremony is to acknowledge their entrance into first grade and celebrate them, their achievements and independence.
If you have any questions, please contact the office.
The Parent handbook for Dublin Montessori Academy has been updated to feature the new rules required from ODJFS. If you would like an updated handbook, please stop by the office to get your copy.
New Labels on Various Snacks—Please Read Labels.
It has come to our attention that some brands on the market are adding a statement under the ingredient list that states: May contain almonds, cashews, pecans, milk, wheat, soy. As you know we are “nut free” when serving classroom snacks and celebration treats. Please be diligent in reading labels when shopping for your child’s school snacks. We do like to see that all of snacks brought in to be in the original containers making it easier for us to read the ingredients. When baking for the classroom as in snacks or celebration treats, please include a list of ingredients. If any snack brought in contains nuts or hydrogenated oil (trans fat) it will be sent home for your family to enjoy. Please also check juices as they need to be 100% juice.
