Children donate books to local shelter

The students of Neshaminy Montessori collected almost 200 books to donate to a local woman's shelter. 

Each child went through their books at home and picked out books to donate to other children who may not have access to as many books. Many Neshaminy Montessori students picked out several of their own books to share. They were so excited and felt so good about themselves knowing that another child would get to read and keep a book that once belonged to them! 

 

Let it snow...again!

Spring might have just officially begun, but Mother Nature isn’t ready to let go of winter just yet! Despite the aftermath from this year’s fourth Nor’easter, children returned to school today – after the storm left 8-10 inches of snow, which covered Pennsylvania as well as most of the East Coast! We are happy to report that students who braved the inclement weather found themselves warm and happy, learning inside of the school building. The chickens, on the other hand, shied away from coming out to play. But “Daisy Sunshine” decided that the snow was a pretty refreshing treat! Speaking of treats, preschool student Charlotte from Trevose Day School had no interest in going out into the cold during yesterday’s “snow day”, but wanted “Ms. Gwynne” (Head of School) to see the Toasted Marshmallow Chocolate Cookies that she baked. They were super yummy!

Book drive happening March 16-26

Dear Families,

Inspired by Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’ Birthday, the staff at Trevose Day School would like to make sure that every child has a book to read! To support this important message, we will be hosting a gently used and new book drive from March 16th to March 26th. All books will be donated to a local women’s shelter for women and their children escaping domestic violence. When the children leave the shelter, they are allowed to pick a book to take with them to their new home.

Please encourage your child to participate by asking them to look through books that they have finished reading and pick a few to donate. Let them know that their books will be shared with other children. Giving to others is always an important lesson for all to learn.

Thank you for your participation in this special book drive!

Warmest regards,

Gwynne Frischmann

How are your children spending their summer?

With summer just around the corner, have you given thought to where you'd like your children spending their time off from school? 

Neshaminy Montessori's camp will provide your children between the ages of 2.5 and 6 years old the opportunity to engage in fun camp, designed with the mindset of fusing continued Montessori studies with cultural activities such as learning theatre, art, nature and STEAM. 

Each camp day will begin with our devoted team of instructors giving Montessori lessons, and then adding in different recreational activities during afternoon sessions to make learning fun and engaging. This teaching strategy induces children into practicing newly learned skills throughout the summer, which then transfer to the upcoming academic school year. Running in that vein, our qualified staff members provide outstanding continued education, resulting in the positive development of all participating children.

 

 

International swimming champion inspires pursuit of dreams

Today the students of Neshaminy Montessori welcomed a very special guest. Mary Mohler, formerly Mary Descenza, came to talk to the children about training and trying out for the Olympics.

Mohler has competed all over the world, from Russia to China, France, Spain, India and many more places. She broke the world record in 2009 for the 200m Butterfly. Even though she has not qualified to compete in the Olympics, she is happy to see the great success of her former teammates and friends like Michael Phelps. A mother of four, Mohler has signed her daughter Emily up for preschool this year! We thank Mohler for sharing her stories, medals, rings and inspiration with us today!
