Notes Home – Wednesday, March 27, 2024

Play Picture Order forms went home last week and are due back, with payment, by your child’s picture day. We will be taking pictures of each child in his/her costume next week. This is not a fundraiser, but an opportunity for you to have your child’s picture in costume. The night of the play, there usually is not an ideal time to get a picture with a good view of your child.

Mrs. Corn, Ms. April and Ms. Lori will be on Tuesday, April 2nd.

            Mrs. Theriac, Ms. Corie and Mr. R will be on Wednesday, April 3rd.

School Play Tickets –

  • Play tickets will go on sale, here at Montessori, Wednesday, April 10th at 7:00 AM. A line forms outside the building, but we do not run out of seats.
  • Seats must be bought in advance. The cost is $6 for the lower level and $10 for the balcony; cash or check only.
  • Tickets may initially only be purchased for your family members (and your guests). If you are buying for another Montessori family, you will need to complete your purchase and then get back in line to complete the second purchase for another family.
  • We will have a chart of where your child will be standing on the stage to help you choose the seat that is right for your family.
  • If a child cannot sit comfortably in your lap for two hours, they will need their own seat/ticket. The play is geared for elementary age children and up.
  • We do not recommend bringing infants or toddlers due to the confines of the seating, the difficulty getting in/out and the length of the program. We record the program for later DVD sales. Crying children make it difficult for those around you to hear and record over.
  • If you need wheelchair access, please let the office know before Wednesday, April 10th.
