EVENT: Silent Journey & Discovery – Open House

Mark your Calendars for our BEST Parent Ed Night!


We are so very excited to offer one of the best Parent Education nights we have found. It is called the Silent Journey and Discovery! It is designed to show parents exactly what their children experience in the Montessori classroom at all levels from the Toddler community through Upper Elementary. Parents find it to be immensely rewarding.
The Journey is held in two sessions on Friday evening and Saturday morning. Attendance at both sessions is highly recommended. This is an ADULT ONLY event, so please be sure to secure child care beforehand!

The Friday session is spent in silent observation (starting at 6:00 and expecting to end around 7:30), as participants travel from the toddler through upper elementary environments. Parents experience what the child or adolescent sees and feels as they enter the classroom.

In the Saturday session (starting at 9:00 with an end time around 11:30), parents work with the Montessori materials and follow actual lessons. They spend approximately 30 minutes at each level and the teachers for that level are available to answer questions and assist with the lessons.

This powerful event provides insight into the transitions and continuity of Montessori education, and enhances parents’ understanding of how and what a student learns in the Montessori classroom.

Please RSVP if you will be coming so we know how many to expect.

Give Your Child’s Clothes And Raise Money for MJM!



Mt Juliet Montessori Academy is participating in a Schoola Clothing Drive. Simply by cleaning your closets, you can raise funds for our School!


It’s easy as 1-2-3:

1. Stuff a bag with high-quality, well cared-for clothes for toddlers, kids and women. The things you’d feel best about giving a friend will raise the most. Drop off bags at Mt Juliet Montessori Academy between November 17th and November 21st.

2. Spread the word to your friends and family through our very own Schoola page: bit.ly/MtJulietSchoola They can also donate clothes to benefit our school!

3. Schoola will spiff and sell our clothes on their on-line shop (www.schoola.com). For every $5 customers spend, they’ll send $2 back to Mt Juliet Montessori Academy. How good is that?!

Welcome Miss Lindsay Wilson


We would like you all to welcome Miss Lindsay Wilson, the new classroom assistant! She has an extensive background in teaching in many different settings with children, including preschool, elementary school and even classrooms for children with special needs. She received her Masters of Education with a specialization in Early Childhood Education in 2008. She will be starting full time on Monday!

Lindsay has lived all over but has now made a permanent home in Mt. Juliet and is excited to get back into teaching. She feels that Montessori is the right fit for her style of teaching and is eager to learn more about it through collaborating with Jana. She has already started developing great relationships with the teachers and children in the short time she has spent observing the classroom.
Please welcome her to our wonderful school community!
