Saguaros February Update

Dear Parents,


The Annual Keystone Montessori Peace Program Presented by the Children’s House classes is scheduled for Wednesday, February 15th.  The program will begin at 6:00 p.m. at Keystone Montessori school. We are very excited to host this event in person this year at school. Please save the date! For those of you who haven’t experienced the Peace Program before, your children have been exploring the concept of peace and how they contribute to making the world a peaceful place to live. The program presents their tribute to what they have discovered. It is a reflection of their understanding of the role that each individual plays in bringing peace to the world.


In our classroom, we have been discussing peace and learning about Martin Luther King, Jr. and his dream of diversity and equality for all people. The children have been listening to and reciting Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. They demonstrate an understanding of the meaning of the words and the intention of the speech. We also have been learning several songs about peace, including “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” and “We Are Unity.”


In addition, since many of the children have been having runny noses and coughs, they have been practicing how to blow their noses, cover their mouths when they cough, and sneeze into their elbow properly.  The children have also been working on washing their hands thoroughly to prevent the spread of germs. 


Valentine’s Day: The school has made the decision to not celebrate Valentine’s Day with the exchange of commercialized Valentine’s Day cards or candy at school. Please do not bring Valentine’s Day cards or candy to share with your child’s classmates. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter!
