Gila Monsters March Update

March 3, 2023


Hello Families and Friends,

Can we unofficially declare it “desert spring” yet? To me it’s clear we have turned a corner with brittle brush blooming, and the sun feeling warmer (when it’s out), and our second semester play and potluck behind us. For a few weeks we turn our attention to test prep which is just a time to ensure that we have given the necessary Montessori lessons that correlate to the grade. We have enjoyed being an audience for all the classes plays and look forward to more in March. Upcoming lessons will be in erosion, weather, percentages, fractions, ratio and proportion, powers of numbers, and roots and flowers.

Upcoming dates:

Picture Day: March 10

Spring Break: March 13-17

AzSCI AASA 5th Grade only: March 24
