Hello Montessori Parents!
Over the holiday break we have created a new blog just for you! We hope that this will be a great place for you to learn more about Montessori inside and outside the classroom, and act as a virtual gathering place for parents to connect with each other as we build our Montessori community.
We are very excited about it and invite you check it out:
Bookmark it, follow it, and talk about it!

Two Important tips for keeping our Maple Grove Community Healthy:
1. Wash your hands. Often.
2. If your child is sick, please keep them at home.
Children need at least 24 hours to recover from a fever. If they have a stomach ache, please keep them at home until they feel better.
