We are now accepting registrations and enrolling students for the 2013-2014 academic year which begins this September 2013.
We are excited to announce that Rowntree Montessori Schools has been awarded the Chairman’s Award (1st place) for Best Parade Float in the Brampton Board of Trade (BBoT) Santa Claus Parade (Brampton Guardian Pg.19 (.pdf 1.3MB)). We would like to thank the BBoT Santa Claus Parade Judges for recognizing our ‘Rockin’ Christmas’ entry.
Our entry featured a joyous upbeat Christmas celebration at a fifties/sixties style diner that included a Jukebox, dance floor, and even drive-up serving windows. Children and staff were dressed in Christmas wear representative of the fifties/sixties and enjoying contemporary reproductions of classic Christmas songs. Our marchers danced away and performed their routines while following our float, and continued to share the good cheer, excitement and sprit of the season at the street level.
Toys for Tots is a charitable endeavour that was initiated in 1993 by Peel Regional Police, in partnership with Canadian Tire and the Salvation Army. During the months of November and December, Police Officers and civilian staff volunteer their time to collect cash, Canadian Tire money and new, unwrapped toys for children in need.
In 2011, Toys for Tots raised over $965,000 to provide over 6,000 children with gifts at Christmas time.
For the last 8 years, Rowntree Montessori Schools has been invited to participate in the Charity Campaign launch and we love it.
Please drop in ANYTIME at any of our 5 campuses to see what we are all about.
We will gladly take the time with you and your family to:
-Tour the facilities (typically takes 15-20 minutes)
-Outline our programmes
-Discuss registration options
Children are welcome.
We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you the school community we are so proud of.
