Star Wars Karate Day Camp - Jan. 21


Join Master Lockman for a fun Day Camp on MLK Day from 9am to 3pm.  Contact the Black Belt Academy at 734-424-5125 for details.  All campers will receive a lightsaber!                                     

The Red Rods are a visually appealing material from the Sensorial Area of the classroom.  They are a materialized abstraction in the dimension of length. Montessori is all about moving from concrete to abstract, so accordingly, the Red Rods help a child visually discriminate differences in length, from 10cm to 100cm.

Second Semester Enrichment Registration
The Second Semester Enrichment Classes will begin on January 22nd and continue into May, 2019.  The registration process will work the same as in the Fall.  Please download the form, make your selections and submit a check to the school office by Thursday, January 17th.
