Elementary Activities

Lower Elementary:
  • Lower Elementary students will be skating for the next three Fridays in the morning.  Students will be picked up by bus at 9:00am and returned to the school at 11:00am. This is an outdoor activity.  Students will need to dress for the weather and will require skates and a helmet.  Unfortunately hockey sticks are not permitted on the outdoor public rinks.  This Friday they will be going to Memorial Park in Waterdown.  

Upper Elementary:  

  • Upper Elementary students will also be skating for the month of February.  Students in the Upper Elementary Classroom will be skating in the afternoon.  The bus will pick up at 1:00pm and return to the school for 3:00.  (pick up at the rink is at 2:30) This week they will be at Memorial Park in Waterdown.

  • Upper Basketball Team: The boys basketball team is having a great time practicing and learning new skills.  The enthusiasm and dedication is so appreciated.  This week the boys will practice on Tuesday at 7:30am.  They have a game on Tuesday January 29th at St. Davids at 4:30pm.  Good Luck!!

Information and Reminder

  • Upcoming PD Day and Statutory Holidays: There is a 3-day weekend coming up: Friday, Feb 8, is a PD Day.  DVMS staff will be observing at other Montessori schools in Canada and the USA.  Monday, Feb. 18, is the Family Day statutory holiday.

  • Reminder if Late: Just a reminder -- if your children arrive late (after 8:45), please be sure to have them check in at the office to let us know they're here. Thank you.

  • Parent Ed. Night:  Our Parent Education Evening will be held on Wednesday February 6, 5:00-7:00pm.  The focus of this evening will be Montessori Math.  

  • DVMS Re-Enrolment: As you all know, re-enrolment for the 2019.2020 school year was sent out this week. We are asking that re-enrolment forms are submitted by Friday Feb. 1. That gives us time to get a good idea of numbers at the various levels and contact families on the wait list. Please don't worry about payment at this time; it is most important that we have the re-enrolment forms submitted (the first payment for the 2019-2020 school year is March 1). If you know that your child will not be returning to DVMS next year and you will not be completing a re-enrolment form, please also let us know. Thank you, DVMS families, for continuing to choose authentic Montessori education for your children. Please click here to complete your re-enrolment form(s) if you have not already done so.
