Nye Beach Montessori News for the Week May, 27 2013

I was given the gift of being able to see the Dalai lama a couple of weeks ago while he was in Eugene. It still feels a little like a dream...getting to be in the same room with such a dear teacher of Compassion and Kindness.

One of the things that struck me the most were his words regarding teaching peace at home...to our young, now, while they are small.

He said, "Parents, especially mothers, show as much affection and kindness to your children as possible. Let them know every day how loved and dear they are. Hug them, hold them, listen to them, laugh with them, be patient, forgiving, kind...etc. so they will have that incredible foundation of love and kindness on which to grow into compassionate and empathetic human beings.

I loved that and just wanted to share it with you...as you are some of the most loving and wonderful parents ever...and are doing just that!

The world thanks you.

And now for your notes...

1. Our Fun Night this Friday has to be moved to another night....possibly this Saturday....or the following Friday. I will let you know ASAP! (Let me know your druthers :-) It will be held 5-10PM.

2. We will be looking at the letters K and L this week.

3. I will be handing out graduation gowns this week and next to our little darlings leaving NBMS and not returning in the Fall. You get to iron them...and then bring them back on a hanger graduation night! We will provide caps that night. The graduates will put the gowns on during intermission. Our All School play, 'Love you Forever' will be first....and then the graduation! More on all of this soon :-)

4. As many of you know, my parents aren't well, and I am going up to see them in Portland most Thursdays right after class....sometimes, just a wee bit before. Sylvia, Kath and Tamara have been so wonderful helping me during this time. Thanks ladies xxx

5. Our garage sale was a smashing success....thanks to the amazing Lissy and Kevin! They made 2583.07!!!! A huge thanks goes out to Renee Bellinger for stopping by to help in such a big way....and Jonathan too! Wow you are all so wonderful. Oh and thank you so much for the wonderful donations everyone!!!!! And for stopping by!!! I knew Lissy was good at putting these kinds of things together, but I had no idea we'd ever come even close to this large sum! And not a moment too soon, as our old washer/dryer combo just died. Sylvia's sweet husband has found us a great one at sears...and now we can get it! Woo hoo.

What fun we are going to have purchasing new supplies/toys/materials etc. for the school.

Thank you Lissy and Kevin, Renee and everyone!!!!

6. We are raising baby steelheads and my are they growing fast! They are almost to the 'fry' stage....ready to be released. We'd love to have as many of you as possible come along on that field trip to release them. I'll keep you posted.

7. School Work Parties Yes...we are having two of them...so more of you can come!
