The New School Montessori Calendar

Annual Board Meeting to Elect New Board Members @ The New School Montessori
Apr 16 @ 8:30 am – 9:00 am

Each year, as several positions on the board become available, the board plans an informal meeting on the Mansion Porch. Current Board Members hand out ballots to parents to vote on the slate they’ve chosen to represent the parent community.

Coffee is served at the gathering and you can meet the board members and ask any questions.

Spring Walkathon Fundraiser
Apr 17 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Students and parent volunteers are invited to walk on a course through TNSM’s campus to raise important funds for the New School Montessori. Students will receive pledges from friends and family for their time spent walking. It’s fun for the whole family!

Board Meeting @ The New School Montessori

We have 12 parent board members each year who meet with administrative staff to help guide the business and mission of the school. You are welcome to attend TNSM Board meetings usually held on the 3rd Tuesday of most months.

4th and 5th Grade Trip
Apr 22 – Apr 24 all-day

Each year, 4th and 5th grade students, chaperones and teachers spend time visiting a location that is a bit farther from home than a simple field trip. Students plan their trip with their teachers and research the sights they’ll see. Each year we alternate between visiting Columbus’ museums and highlights or Marengo Caves in Indiana. In spring of 2019, students will be exploring the sights in and around Columbus, OH.
