Dear Families,
I want to take a moment to thank you for your continued support for your child’s education. Our Fun Run was a huge success, as all of our participants finished with a smile! The rain held off and we were able to enjoy refreshments and prizes! What fun! 
Earlier this month, the primary classes were able to enjoy a morning at Sass Farms. The hayrack ride was relaxing, the petting zoo was exciting, snack was delicious, and the barn was a thrill. The bus trip was a favorite feature and we were even refunded for the buses, as they had to be rerouted with the correct directions. The field trip expenses ended up amounting to $5 per child, as the bus trip was free. If you’d like to pick up the remaining $10, you may request your refund from Judy. Otherwise, we will transfer the field trip funds to the Teacher Appreciation Week (May).
Parent-teacher conferences will be held on November 19th, which means we will not have school for our children. This is a time when you will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress at school. Many families find it beneficial to find childcare during this time. This will optimize the time you share with your child’s teacher.
As you are aware, the weather is changing. Please label all of your child’s items. It is also important to note that we follow the Iowa City Community School District Weather Policy. If ICCSD (Iowa City Community School District) delays or cancels due to inclement weather, so do we. Specific details outlining the policy can be found at
Please remember to bring in your Box Tops for Education. This is an easy way to earn money for our school. 
Upcoming Dates:
October 31st: Halloween Parade (see your child’s teacher for specific times)
November 8th: School Picture Day
November 19th: NO SCHOOL: Parent-Teacher Conferences
November 27-29 NO SCHOOL: Thanksgiving Break
Our mission is to provide authentic Montessori education that serves your child’s intrinsic motivation to learn and is inclusive, sustainable, and holistic. It is an honor to be a part of your child’s journey.
Terrah Taggart
Head of School
