Parent/Student Beginning Strings Orientation Sept 4, 2019 @ The New School Montessori
Sep 4 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Meeting for prospective beginning strings students and parents will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 4 in the Growing Room. Students in grades 2-6 are eligible.

Melissa Robinson, TNSM’s music teacher and orchestra leader will discuss the strings program and answer any questions the parents may have. Students may choose violin, viola, cello, or bass. We are thrilled to have Melissa Robinson, former NKU director of strings, leading our orchestra program.

A representative from the Baroque Violin Shop will be present to handle  instrument rental.  Students should attend the meeting with their parents so that they can be measured for the correctly-sized instrument.
Call or email Melissa Robinson if you have questions.

(9-12) Camping / Community Trip
Sep 19 – Sep 20 all-day

(9-12) level students practice the independence and confidence they’ve built throughout the year in a new setting with new challenges at Camp Ernst. Students receive encouragement and cheers of support from teachers, classmates and parent chaperones as they wobble across rope bridges, glide through treetops on zip lines and rope swings, ring bells on climbing walls, paddle kayaks, and more. It’s a wonderful time to get to know one another better on this 2-day and 1-night adventure while watching students’ confidence soar as they reach one milestone after another.

Picture Day (3-6) students and their siblings
Sep 24 all-day

Helen Adams (an alumni parent and professional photographer) will be taking school photos for The New School Montessori again this year.

There is no fee involved if you do not wish to purchase any photos. Your child’s photo will be taken and included in the annual yearbook, but it’s up to you to decide what (if any) poses you’d like to buy.

Helen Adams’ Goal:

“Say goodbye to the awkward school portrait. My mission is to bring authenticity and fun to  school photography. I want to let kids be kids. Let them be sweet, funny or silly. Let them giggle and wiggle. These portraits won’t be stuffed in a drawer for the next 20 years. They will be displayed where they will bring a smile to the heart every time they are seen.”

Clothing should enhance the portrait and not distract from it. Try to avoid patterns, prints or stripes that are too bold. That being said, these portraits are meant to be fun so above all else, the clothing should be true to the subject’s personality and style.
