Dear Families,

The 5th years in Upper Elementary had a wonderful, if snowy, visit to the state capitol this week!  


5th year Going Out 

Parent Partnership

It’s not too late to RSVP to our Parent Partnership event this Monday at 5:30pm!  Come learn about how children experience friendship, from the Toddler Community all the way through Upper Elementary.  Your children will have dinner during childcare.  You are also invited to stay at 6:30 for the Middle School Options and Upper Elementary reunion night with Jess and Mara. 


Cornerstone Emergency Plan

In light of recent events at schools in California and in our own neighborhood, I know many of you are concerned with your child’s safety at school.  We take these concerns very seriously as well.  Please click here to view our emergency procedures manual and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have specific questions.


Parenting Workshops

The Montessori Center of Minnesota has released its workshop schedule for the 2019-20 year!  There are several wonderful opportunities for parents, including workshops led by our very own Lourdes Harris and Liesl Taylor.  Click here to learn more.


Filming Permission Slips

We are still hoping to receive photo release forms for children in Forest, Marsh, and Pond for filming in our classrooms that will be used for teacher training and professional development.  Please let me know if you need another copy.


Holiday Share Toy Distribution

Merrick is now taking registrations for the Holiday Share Toy Distribution.  Registration is available online in English, Spanish and Hmong.  Scroll to the bottom of the webpage for the registration buttons.  


Merrick provides children 17 and under with a present. The Holiday Share distribution days are Saturday, December 14th or Monday, December 16th, 8:30-1pm or 12:3-4pm. Families will be notified of their appointment date/time no later than December 10th. 


We look forward to seeing you Monday!
