Dear Parents,


Happy wet spring to you! We have so much to be thankful for around here, and your family is one of them.


The students did a wonderful job on their spring play, “The Wizard of Oz.” Thank you to my amazing staff, especially Mr. Sumski and Mrs. Lewis. It is a great deal of work for all the staff and students. I’d also like to thank the students for all their hard work. We loved it! Thank you also to Mrs. Hatton, Mrs. Eicholz and Middle School students for their performances of “Hamlet” and “The Merchant of Venice.” It was simply amazing to me how much easier it was to understand Shakespeare rather than read it.


The Silent Auction will be held on Saturday, May 5. Our theme is Cinco de Mayo. We would love to see you and your friends that evening.  We are still in need of donations (baskets of Legos, beauty products, etc.). You may leave them in my office. Please patronize your favorite business and ask if they would be willing to help us. Donation sheets have been emailed to you. Your donation will count toward your volunteer hours. If you do not wish to donate, please consider a monetary donation to the PTO. All donations may be used for volunteer hours. We ask that you have them ready to be auctioned when bringing them to the school. Thank you in advance. Also a big thank you goes out to Cathy Van Matre and the PTO for their hard work and dedication to MSW.  The money raised over the last few years has gone directly to Montessori certification for lead and co-teachers. The fundraisers also finance us going to Montessori Conferences helping us stay up to date on teaching your children. I would love to see you at the Fundraiser.


Lastly, Taste of the World was a great success, and we are grateful for all of the parents and grandparents for their volunteering to cook and serve the students. We all had a blast and realize we could not have done it without your help. Also, thanks to the teachers and students who worked so hard to prepare the rooms. They were all so beautiful!

 Thanks, and God Bless,
