April is an exciting month here at the Montessori School of San Clemente. We will be learning about our planet Earth & Oceania (Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands). Teachers will engage children in discussions of climates, plants, and animals. The children will learn about islands and how they form and grow. They will explore the parts of a volcano and even get to make on in their classroom! Our literary focus will be on Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault. April will also host many events including our annual Spring Egg Hunt, Week of the Young Child, and our Open House. As a reminder, school is closed April 1st-5th.
The Week of the Young Child starts on April 15th through April 19th. It is celebrated across the country to focus and celebrate the needs of young children. Each day we will have a special activity to celebrate our children. Monday will be Sports Day (Wear your favorite team jersey). Tuesday will be Crazy Hair or Hat Day (Get creative with a wacky hat or crazy hair). Wednesday will be a Class Picnic (Child event). Thursday will be Super Hero/Princess Day (Wear your favorite super hero shirt or princess dress). Friday will be Pajama Day (School favorite!).
Our Spring Egg Hunt will be on April 19th. All children, Walkers and Up, will participate in our egg hunt. We ask that each child bring in 6 pre-stuffed eggs for the hunt. Eggs may be filled with stickers, erasers, bubbles, or other NON-FOOD items. Please place eggs in the collection box at the front office.
Join us on April 24th from 4PM-6PM for our Open House. School will close at 3PM this day. We invite all families and their children to join us this evening. This is a wonderful opportunity for your children to show you what they have been learning all year!
