Graduation Day at The Zoo
Friday, May 26th
It is important that your child arrive at school on time. Many magical things happen at the beginning circle!
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 Zoo is making some adjustments to their program and we will keep you informed if changes may occur with our event. 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.

American Sign Language
The month of March (hopefully) brings warmer weather and our springtime themed book When Spring Comes. We will practice signs such as grass, egg, mud, bubbles, spring, and flowers. Additionally, our class will reiterate our manual alphabet now that we know A-Z with P.D. Eastman’s The Alphabet Book. We will also enjoy another book by Taro Gomi entitled Over the Ocean where we will learn signs such as ocean, farm, city, building and country.
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.
Thank you to all the parents that helped provide the napkins, plates, cups, cookies, frosting, strawberries and milk for the Valentine’s Day party.
