Calling All Male Mentors

A school in our Montessori family, Pleasant Ridge Montessori, is requesting male mentors for their Donuts with Dad event on Friday, March 23rd from 7:30-9:00. They are trying to make sure a man is present to support every student in their community, by asking the community to show up and stand in for others who cannot be there. This morning you will be asked to do an activity with the student in the classroom, and you will be given donuts and coffee. Follow this link to sign up:

Check out our Book Lending Libraries

Have you seen our 7 new book lending libraries? They look great and are being used, but we still need to get more books to be able to fill all 7 of the libraries. We appreciate all of the book donations that we have received thus far, but we need more. Books can be dropped off in the office. The lending libraries are a communal operation where students can take and leave books to read or use throughout the year.

Kroger Community Rewards Program

The Foundation would like to remind you that if you are participating in the Kroger Community Rewards program, the quarter has ended and the amounts have been updated. Please remember to print your account summary page and get the copy to the office or email it to Tom Haid. You must include the name of your student in order to get the amount credited to her account.

Update Immunizations Records

During a recent records review, we discovered several students whose immunization records are incomplete. These families have received separate notification. Please resolve these matters quickly, as students without full immunization records can be removed from school until immunizations occur.

As always, there are lots of ways to get involved at Gamble Montessori, where we make a commitment to learning every day, and we will see you there.
