Welcome to our class

Upcoming Events

Primary Montessori students have been studying the Solar System this first quarter. Our six classroom will now be taking a field trip to the UNO Planetarium! Our trip date is Monday, October 16th. Our bus leaves at 9:45am. We will return to Montclair before lunch. Due to a limited number of seats, we will not be taking any parent volunteers. The cost of this field trip is $5.50 per child. If you would like to help offset the costs of our trip, you make a donation to the school. We are looking forward to this enrichment opportunity!!


Welcome to the school year 2017-18. Thank you to all of you who were able to attend the Montclair Open house and our Curriculum Night. It was wonderful meeting new families and visiting with some familiar faces.

Students may bring a snack to enjoy in the morning or afternoon. They must complete one individual work before having snack.

It must be a healthy snack…please refer to the school wellness plan for recommendations. Unhealthy snacks will be sent home.

Please avoid peanuts, peanut products, and snacks made in a peanut factory. We have children in our vicinity with a very severe, life-threatening peanut allergy. This is an airborne allergy. Please double-check the labels and product information on your child’s snack before sending them to school.
