The Golden Can Award

The Golden Can Award is given to the class that collects the most canned and dry goods throughout Spirit Week.
Help your child's classroom win by sending in any canned or dry goods from Monday through Friday morning.  The donations will go to the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank.
Children should take donations to their classroom to be counted towards the class total.
The deadline for turning in items Friday at 11:00 am so the cans can be counted. If any arrive after 11:00, they will not be in the count.
The second grade students will deliver the food to Bread of the Mighty.

American Flag

Millhopper Montessori School will hold an American flag ceremony at the school on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 to commemorate Patriot Day and to recognize the services provided by the school's Safety Patrol. The flag is being gifted to the school to celebrate their 40th anniversary this past school year.

The Safety Patrol members from the 2017-2018 school year will ceremonially pass the flag on to this year's Safety Patrol members. The flag was acquired when last year's Safety Patrol visited the U.S. Capital as part of the Alachua County schools' Safety Patrol tour over the summer. By request through Senator Bill Nelson, the flag was flown for the 1st and only time above the U.S. Capital on June 5, 2018, the last full day of MMS' Safety Patrol tour. The flag will be flown over the school for the second time ever during the ceremony.
