This is an adult only event and is welcome to all friends and family of MAU. Admission is now $20 per person and all proceeds go towards the committees ongoing projects. The committee meets on the first Wednesday of each month, if you are interested in contributing to the ideas shared.

We are making some changes to our staff. We are welcoming Ms. Destany to our Infant and Toddler Community. Ms. Brittney will continue to support the classroom but will primarily work in the office going forward. We are making these changes to ensure that there is office staff available to answer your questions and concerns during Office Hours. 
The 2017 Spring Sing will be held at Lincoln Avenue Community Church located at 1511 Lincoln Avenue in Pomona, CA on Friday, May 19th at 6 p.m. Please note that this day is a minimum day so that the children can go home and change, eat and be ready to perform for you. We will close at 2:30 p.m. on the day of the performance. A note will go home with your teacher regarding the desired attire needed for the performance. Children should arrive at the venue by 5:30 p.m. to be ready to start promptly at 6 p.m. We will also be having an International Pot Luck directly after in the reception hall. We are asking that each family bring 8 –12 servings of their favorite main dish, side or dessert that represents your families’ heritage. Tickets will be available prior to the event for $2 or $3 at the door. We hope to see you there!
All classes will be holding their Mother’s Day Events on Monday, May 15th. You will receive an invitation from your child with details of the event which is specific to each class. Please save the date to stop by and spend a little time with your child so they can honor and serve you on this day.
On Monday, we opened registration to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please remember to return your Registration Form to the office along with any applicable fee as soon as possible so that we can guarantee a spot in the Summer Session and/or Academic School Year for your child. Our summer theme this year is Animal Adventures. We are currently working on booking our field trips and will have our schedule complete by the end of next week so that you can have more information about what our program will offer. Remember that our summer program includes continued academic work within the Montessori curriculum. 
We are just a month and a half away from the end of the 2016-2017 School Year, can’t believe we are really that close! I would like to take a moment to recognize the efforts of the Parent-Teacher Committee this school year. Thank you Ms. Brittney, Ms. Kris, Tara, Paige, Caren, and Ellie for the events you organized including the Harvest Festival and Casino Night, along with the funds you raised for our children this school year. I am so glad to see this committee take shape the way I had always hoped. The PTC is open to any parent or teacher who would like to give their feed back and lend their talents to the school community, or just hang out and get to know others in the MAU community. We hope to see you there!
Thank you parents for your continued support of the school and your children, “it takes a village”. We are thankful for our wonderful staff and are proud of the accomplishments of our students. It has been a wonderful year as we have nearly doubled our student body due in large part to the good word you are sharing about us with your friends and family.  
With many thanks,

Adam Thewes, Administrator
