(P4/K/3rd) Next Step Meeting for parents of current 4-year-olds, kindergartners and 3rd graders
Nov 16 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Parents of 4-year-olds, kindergartners and 3rd graders are to arrive at 6:00 p.m. for their meeting at TNSM.

We are hosting an evening called NEXT STEP.  The evening is designed to provide information for parents with children who will be transitioning into a new level at The New School Montessori.  In other words, if you child will be a Kindergartener, 1st grader, or 4th grader next year, you are encouraged to attend our NEXT STEP meeting.
  • The evening will begin in the Growing Room at 6:00 p.m.  During that time there will a 15 minute presentation and a short video.  At 6:30 parents will divide up and gather in prospective classroom environments for a 30-minute information and Q&A session.
  • This is a great way to see what it is to come for your child next year both socially and academically.  It is also an opportunity for you to get to know the teachers if your child is graduating into the (6-9) or (9-12) program.
  • Child care will be provided. (3-6) childcare will gather in the Buckeye Room and the (6-12) Child care will gather in the Enrichment Center.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Elementary students perform a Thanksgiving play, a brief skit or a poetry reading as a way of sharing what they’re thankful for. There are also opportunities to give thanks with our annual community participation with Cincinnati’s Freestore Foodbank. You may deliver clothes or canned goods to the Mansion Lobby on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

Preprimary and elementary parents and families are invited to attend and are welcome to join us after the students’ presentations for a small piece of pumpkin pie.
