Schoolhouse Montessori Academy-Troy Updates

Happy Friday! It was another fabulous week at SMA. To top it off, we had an in-house presentation. Mrs. Jyot Shah, one of our Olive morning Assistant Teacher’s did an awesome presentation on Diwali. Diwali is coming up this Sunday. The children were fascinated by the colorful artifacts, and a dance presentation by the Olive students. Diwali is the festival of lights for our friends from India. It is always good to allow children to learn new things, as they are inquisitive and always eager to know.

Looking ahead:

  • October 31st: It will be a regular school day but NO PM Kids Club. School will end promptly at 3:15pm for the Full Day and PM Kids Club students. If you are unable to pick up your child on time on this day, please make another pickup arrangement. On this day, your child is allowed to come in his/her Halloween costume with one condition, it must provide easy access to the bathroom and be easy to move around in to go about the normal school day. Masks and pretend weapons are not allowed. Children must wear regular closed shoes. On this day, we will also have an indoor parade. The information went home on Monday. The parade will start at 10:00am sharp for the AM and Full Day students. For PM only students, the parade is at 1:00pm. Parents are welcome to attend, but it is not mandatory. The parade last for 15 to 20 minutes only.  We are in need of two more parent volunteers to pass out candy.  If you are interested, please email Ms. Sfire.
  • November 24-25th: For Thanksgiving break, school will be closed and childcare will not be available.
  • November 30th: School Picture retake day.

Have a great, safe weekend!
