The Glen Montessori
Traditions and Events
Journey of Discovery
Come Visit The Glen! Follow a Montessori child’s journey through each program Birth-Three, Children’s House and Elementary. This is your chance to experience for yourself how students explore the classroom with freedom. You can request lessons, learn surprising connections between materials across programs and finally touch those beautiful bead chains! Montessori Education has so much to offer each student. We’ll talk about key principles and practices that lead to our students’ happiness and success: freedom of choice, following the child, the individualized curriculum and many more key features of the Montessori Classroom.
After The Journey, Parents can choose to visit their child’s class for orientation; meet the teachers, find out what your child can expect on the first day of school, what to bring, what not to bring, and ask questions. Get excited for the 2018 school year with us!
Meet up with us at Avonworth park!
Potluck lunch and lots of fun! Teachers, students, parents, alumni and board members all get together to reconnect before school starts
Parent Education Night
How do our youngest students choose work? Why does my child love metal insets so much? Why is the decimal system color coded? What is my child learning when she counts the 7 chain? Why do you teacher letter sounds before the letter names?
There is so much to learn about Montessori. Join us for answers to these questions and more!
Childcare provided. Register by 9/21.
Scholastic Book Fair
Browse the books together. We have so many books they stretch down hallways on the bottom and first floor hallways! The Bookfair is open all day. Kindergarten lunch and shop days and elementary lunch and shop days!
Get ready, Get set – DANCE! See your school transformed into a winter wonderland. Complete with disco balls, lights, and yummy food AND a hot chocolate bar. We will dance the night away together as a whole happy school community. We have a professional photographer set up for family (and friend) photos and the cafeteria is set up for feasting.
Each Children’s House Classroom (ages 3-6) has a special Winter Celebration day. Parents and special friends are invited to join the classroom for songs, special activity and cookies made by the students.
A fun packed day for Grandparents and special guests in Children’s House and Elementary. Every visitor will spend some time in the classroom and then attend an absolutely adorable presentation in the gym.
