Newsletter 10/12/13

Dear Six Rivers Montessori Families,

The Fall sunshine has cast beautiful rays of yellow and orange through our windows in the morning and afternoons. Students can’t help but look out these windows at the big spiders crafting beautiful and intricate webs right before our eyes.

We see such sense of wonder in the classroom everyday as a student wraps their head around the concepts of division, or discovers that some planets have more than one moon, or hears a story about a person dedicating their life to serving others.

Hope all are enjoying this beautiful Saturday, and here is this week’s newsletter!
