September 2012 – May 2013
New students of the all day/red room orientation
Every year Western PA Montessori School sponsors a Fall Festival 2012 so that parents can meet each other and enjoy family fun. This year we will be going to the Richland Township Barn on Sunday, September 30 from 1-4 PM.
The Gateway for the Arts will entertain us with a musical program. Our children will have fun playing together in the playground, guessing how much the BIG pumpkin weighs, guessing how many pieces of candy are in the jar, eating the good foods that you bring, getting their faces painted, and making the crafts too.
The hospitality committee of the board of directors would really like to see you all there that day. Please remember to return your forms to volunteer your help that day and let them know how many of your family members will be attending.
