Future of the School
Ad Hoc Committee
At the November 21, 2016 Leelanau Montessori Board meeting, it was voted to create an ad hoc committee to explore options to consider for the future of our school.  If you are interested in joining this committee, please come to the first meeting on Tuesday, November 29th.  We will meet in Room 2 across from the main office at 6:00 p.m.  
  "We shall walk together  on this path of life, for all
things are part of the universe 
and are connected with each other to 
form one whole unity."

Elementary Snack
Growing children need lots of nourishment- brain food.  Children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack each day. We have a small stash of items in the office for those who forget but the supply of granola bars and apples is dwindling.  Get your child involved in picking out the juiciest apple, crackers and cheese, carrots and hummus, hard boiled egg, granola bar........ Thank you!
Young Entrepreneurs Marketplace December 22nd 
Once again, the elementary students are invited to take part in the Young Entrepreneurs Marketplace.  On Thursday, December 22nd we will open up the marketplace and invite students to sell their wares.  Students may pick up a form in the office and return it by Wednesday, December 22nd.     
Looking Ahead..........
On Thursday, December 22nd we have an 11:15 a.m. dismissal day before we begin our winter break.  We are planning some special events this day.  We will have a Community Sing, Young Entrepreneurs Marketplace, and some sort of winter activities.  Stay tuned for the complete timeline and schedule.
