So it's the last week of school.... Time for summer fun to begin soon: camps, trips and exploring! In all the summer bustle, don't forget to take the time out for Montessori learning, reading and those moments that can be utilized to teach even the simplest of lessons! Stay Safe and HAVE FUN! We look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall!
LAST DAY OF SCHOOL IS THIS THURSDAY!
SECONDARY MONTESSORI NEWS
Parents of 6th grade students attending Sedgefield Montessori next year –
Students at Sedgefield Montessori (and Sedgefield Middle School) are NOT REQUIRED TO WEAR UNIFORMS NEXT YEAR, so plan accordingly. All students must follow the CMS dress code regarding what is appropriate school attire.
As always, Sedgefield Montessori t-shirts are a GREAT option and can be purchased & worn every day! The change in uniform policy does NOT apply to students who are staying at HMM next year – just those moving up to Sedgefield Montessori.
Here’s a link to tons of info our rising 7th graders (and you) need to know:
