Montessoiree 2022 Wishlist:  Holiday shopping coming up!! The PTO is preparing for our annual Montessoiree. A big part of the event is our popular silent auction, which includes a variety of fun baskets and packages of items donated by individuals and businesses.

If you would like to sponsor a donation, the donations committee has prepared a wish list on Amazon of items for the silent auction. If you order from the wish list, you can have the item shipped directly to Montessori. (Be sure to request a gift receipt so we know who donated the item.) If you have an idea for something that is not on this list – we’ll take it! We love creativity and help of any kind!

Megan Knoll is heading the donations committee.  Please feel free to reach out to her directly with any questions.  Cell: 812-455-1545 or email:


Families w/o AM Care must use the car line when dropping their child off at school.

PM care pick ups – Please supervise children on the front lawn after PM Care pick up.

  • Children should not play in the landscaped areas.
  • Adults and children aged 3 and older must wear their face mask when entering the building.

Sunscreens, lotions, creams, over the counter medicine, chap stick, prescription medicine –

Normally, parents would fill out a form at the front desk and leave the item there, but now that’s not possible. The new protocol will be to send us an email before you drop off in the AM. Then, hand the item off to the staff person upon dropping off or put in your child’s bag; we’ll get it out before school starts. Sarah and Kristi typically read their email before 8:30 drop off or immediately after.

The email needs to tell us:

  • Name of item
  • How much to use
  • What time to give or apply
  • If it needs to return home each day (ie) prescription medicine.

For example: Sunscreen, apply to face/arms/legs before going outside. Or, chapstick, use as needed.

Ideally you would send the email to:, and the child’s teacher. This will ensure it’s retrieved ASAP.
