Dear Families,

Have you finished filling out your enrollment packet for summer and fall?  Hurry, it's not too late to sign up for Summer classes.  They will be held June 17 through July 26 for the Primary children ages 3 to 6.  Summer classes include gardening and more project-based activities than the school year.

We are so excited to be opening the second two-year-old classroom with the start of the 2019-2020 school year.  If you know of anyone that is wanting their two year old to attend, have them contact us as soon as possible as we have limited spots left.

We enjoy greeting, receiving, and dismissing students at the front door.  In the interest of respecting each member of our community, we ask that cars not be left unattended in the circle driveway between 8:00 a.m.m and 4:00 p.m. If you need to come into the building, please park in the east parking lot.

We are seeking parents and community members who are interested in helping the Montessori School of Iowa City to grow by becoming a member of the Board of Trustees.  The election is held in May.  Please contact me ( if you are interested in learning more about this opportunity or if you would like to nominate a parent or community member.  Applications will be accepted through April 26.

Lost and Found has some nice items in it, and so does the classroom coat racks.  Please check these areas for your child's missing items.

We are looking forward to this year's International Festival, May 3, 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.  This wonderful fun event is a way to celebrate our cultural diversity.  If you have not signed up on Sign-Up Genius, sign up now.  It is a great community event.  There will be activities, food, entertainment, and did I mention the wonderful food!  Last year, we had food dishes representing at least 26 different countries from around the world.  You don't want to miss this event.

Volunteers are needed to help at our booth at this year's 2019 Iowa Arts Festival Children's Global Village!  The Children's Global Village will be held on Sunday, June 2nd, from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Clinton Street between Washington Street and College Street (the entrance to the pedestrian plaza).  Please sign up by May 10th with Mrs. Kuehl.

Cindy Kuehl
