Special Events

Global Montessori Academy has a variety of school-wide events scheduled for 2017–2018 school year:

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat is a longstanding GMA tradition where families wear their Halloween costumes and trick or treat from car to car. Families decorate their trunks in an array of Halloween themes. Families can join forces to decorate trunks for some friendly competition or can just come to the party and skip the trunk decorating altogether. Siblings, grandparents and friends are all welcome to attend!

4th Annual Thanksgiving Feast  – 2017

Parents and grandparents are cordially invited to our Thanksgiving Feast on Wednesday, November 22nd.  The meal will be catered and the cost for adults is $10 and the cost for siblings is $6 (if they aren’t part of our school lunch program).

We will stagger the feast times as we cannot fit everyone in Cherokee Hall at the same time.  The Toddler Community, Children’s House 2, and Children’s House 3 will begin their feast at 11:00.  Children’s House 1, Children’s House 4, and Elementary will feast at 12:00.  If you have children in classrooms that straddle both feast times, we will make sure both children can join you for the feast. Once the feast is over, the school will close for Thanksgiving break.

Please RSVP in the front office by signing up and leaving payment by Friday, November 10th, so we can prepare adequate amounts of food. Questions? Please email Erin (erinp@globalmontessori.com).

Winter Program – 2017

Mark your calendars for a favorite GMA tradition, the Winter Program! The afternoon of Tuesday, December 19th, the students will perform Christmas and winter songs. Each class works hard practicing their selections. The finale will be an all-school song! The program will begin at 4PM in the sanctuary. (No extended day.) Traditionally, we have a restaurant night following the program. Once details are finalized, we will announce the restaurant location.

8th Annual Spring Fling

It’s that time of year again! Our annual auction is right around the corner. This year’s event will be on Saturday, March 3, 2018. Funds raised through the 2018 auction this year will be invested in Montessori education grants, Montessori materials purchases, and playground and outdoor classroom space improvements. All contributions to Global Montessori Academy are fully tax-deductible.

Volunteer at Harvesters

Once each year a group of GMA parents, 3rd and 4th year students, and supporters volunteer at Harvesters.  In 2018, it will be January 16. Whether sorting and bagging carrots, or packing BackSnacks for low-income children, it’s a great day in so many ways.
