Miss Amanda's Gordon Toasts | A Lakes Region Montessori

1/2 cup mayo
16 oz. sharp cheddar, shredded
1 small onion, minced
8 oz. crumbled crispy bacon
3/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 loaf of dense sliced white bread

Mix all of the ingredients (except for the bread) in a bowl. Cut crusts off the bread and spread the mixture onto the bread. Toast at 425 degrees until brown and bubbly. Cut into triangles and serve.

This recipe freezes well up to three moths. Just prepare as above, except don't put them in the oven. Freeze them on a cookie sheet and once frozen, you can place them in a freezer bag.

Easter Potluck | A Lakes Region Montessori

The Easter potluck was very well attended! The children gathered for circle-time while an Easter egg hunt was orchestrated outside. Then the children were off to find the eggs! After some outside time, the group shared a wonderful meal provided by all the parents. Thank you for your support!

Seda's baby sister has arrived! | A Lakes Region Montessori

From Suzanne:

Isla Stellina (pronouced like Island in the beginning) born 4-17-11 at 11:12pm 7lbs 5oz 21 inches long. She is nursing well and already back up to her birth weight. Stubborn little beauty - put Mom through 60 hrs of labor but a successful VBAC! We brought her home on Tuesday and I'm recovering well and thrilled to have her here with us. Seda is being a loving and doting big sister and loves to sing to her.

the world is good to me | A Lakes Region Montessori blog

There are many daily traditions at ALRM. At lunchtime, the children wash their hands and line up. They have a moment of silence and then sing the following song before sitting down to eat:

Oh, the world is good to me
And so I thank the world
for giving me
the things I need
the sun and the rain
and appleseeds
oh, the world is good to me
Bon appetit
now you may eat!

Re-enrollment Time | A Lakes Region Montessori School

Dear Parents,

It is re-enrollment time at A Lakes Region Montessori. I have given each parent a new financial application form which needs to be filled out and returned on or before April 15th along with the yearly supply fee of $225. Please note that as we will run only one Montessori preschool class, I expect to have a full classroom. No space will be saved without the supply fee and financial form returned. I have also made the summer enrollment form available for those who are interested. Older siblings are welcome to enroll in this program as well.

I would like to note that I have NOT raised tuition for next year. I think that times are hard for everyone and have decided to keep things as they are. Any family choosing to pay the full year in advance will receive a 10% discount.

We are also enrolling for the infant and toddler program as well. We intend to enroll four infants only, leaving ten spots open for toddlers. If you need a financial application form for this program, please let me know.

As always, I would like to thank all of the families who support our school. It is a pleasure to have you as a part of the school community.
