This year, the winter weather has been exceptionally cold and the record low temperatures have forced many schools to close down for more days than any other time in recent history. As a result, this has been very disruptive to the families of our schools.
Since Schoolhouse began, we have followed the public school district when it has come to school closings and delayed starting times for a variety of reasons. This year we did not want to cause further disruption and confusion by not following the local district closures. However, this year has brought to light that this is no longer a good policy for our families. Therefore beginning the 2014-15 school year, Schoolhouse will no longer follow the local district closures but instead make closure and/or delayed start decisions on a case by case basis as we determine it will best meets the needs and safety concerns of our families and staff. Therefore it will be important to note, your local Schoolhouse Montessori Academy will only be closed if it is listed on the news stations (e.g. www.clickondetroit.com/weather/closings) and to disregard any local district closures.
Further, to help alleviate the burden these closures have caused, Schoolhouse has decided to cancel the local mid-winter breaks for each school – please refer to your Schoolhouse Montessori location’s calendar for these dates. Schoolhouse typically offers child care during this break at an additional cost, however this year we will not be charging families and will treat these days as normal school days to help make up for the days closed due to weather and to ensure students receive any missed curriculum for the closures. Any families who have already signed up and paid for mid-winter care will be refunded or have the payment credited to their remaining balance if they wish. If you have already planned vacation for these dates, please do not change or cancel your plans.
We sincerely hope that this will help our families this year and in the future if there are more winters ahead like this one.

Believe it or not winter will officially be here soon. These past days we could definitely sense Michigan winter weather. The frigid cold and snow is a sure sign that it could be a harsh one. In spite, of the cold weather the students and teachers at the Troy campus are finishing the year 2013 with great ending. The students, Toddlers all the way to lower elementary, have blossomed and progressed beautifully in all aspects. These areas include academics, social, emotion, maturity and physical.
Besides, achieving all the above mentioned Troy Schoolhouse Montessori Academy students are also given the opportunity to venture out in a different avenue. With that being said, our third annual talent show proves it, after all it was a grand success. All our budding dancers, singers, instrumentalist, poets and much more took the stage and brought the house down. The talents our young students have are incredible.
Troy campus also had the privilege to celebrate holidays around the world, with our own parents doing the presentations. Our classrooms are very unique with different cultures and the diversity helps the students learn about each other. The mulberry classroom finished the week with a beautiful performance of The Nutcracker ballet. We have many more exciting fun filled activities in store for the New Year. Soon we will say good bye to 2013 and welcome 2014!
