We are looking forward to a wonderful school year! I am pleased that we have been able to renew our agreement with Music Together and that Miss Mary will be with us on two mornings to ensure that 2 and 3 day a week children, both upstairs and downstairs, get to participate. Our contract requires the participation of all enrolled children. Music Together is developed at the Center for Music for Young Children in Princeton, NJ and has complemented preschool curriculum since the 1980s. This program is present in Montessori schools throughout the US, and we are very excited to have it here, in New Hampton. Feel free to check out the website to understand more about this program and how it enhances all learning.
The music fee for the school year is $175 per child and pays for all the materials and 30 weeks of participation. Payment should be made directly to "A Lakes Region Montessori" and is due on September 15th. Families needing an extension, please see me to work out an alternative. Last year, payments were made directly to Miss Mary, and, in that process, there were families who did not pay the fee. If you fall into this category, please make payment to ALRM with your September tuition.
We hope you will revel in the joy of family music!
