SBMS This Week - In Pictures!

This Week at SBMS

SBMS's Annual School Picnic-BIG MONEY WINNERS

Rawlings family sweeps the awards! Ben (Erdkinder) won the 300m Open foot race and walked away with BIG MONEY. And, the Rawlings also won the guacamole mix-off, and ran away with even more BIG MONEY. Jennifer Rawlings might have won the Mom's 50m sprint, but it didn't happen, so that BIG MONEY has been deposited into the next picnic's kitty. Michael Probstel managed a victory in the 300m adult division of the race, confirming Germany's WORLD CUP victory was no fluke. Michael refused to accept his BIG MONEY, so that amount has gone back into the kitty, too. Dylan Kracke claimed several victories, which explained his wad of BIG MONEY, and Ford Gannon won the first race, but to his major disappointment, not the second. Or third.

School Picture Days
October 8 - Toddlers, Primary and Erdkinder
October 9 - Elementary - Lower and Upper

Rebecca Farmer returns with her Kodak box camera for another round of portraits and group shots. Finished photos will be available sooner than later. In formation and sign-up information has ALREADY been sent home. Can't find it, see form below.

Please, RETURN form and payment on or BEFORE Friday, October 3. It's easy to see how helpful that will be. Organizing each class so that Rebecca can record each child in connection with their actual photograph. There are so many variables involved in addition to keeping track of the children (Rebecca doesn't know their name!) that signing up the morning of the photographs results in an unnecessary challenge.

Fridays in October at SBMS
10:00am - 11:00am

New classes for families with children under the age of 3; Moms and their child (dads are OK, too) join with others in SBMS's Toddler classroom for discussions and experiences. Toileting, Sleep patterns, healthy diets, and indoor and outdoor activities are all part of the experience. We're ready to "comp" any SBMSer who recommends a friend or neighbor who registers and attends the classes.

Book Faire
Sunday, Oct. 12, 4:00 - 6:00pm
Chaucer's Book Store
Loreto Plaza (Harry's & Renaud's)

A SBMS tradition, celebrating books and families and reading, and all things good, which include raising funds for SBMS's Financial Assistance (scholarships). Volunteers help organize and present this annual event-It's a great opportunity for HOLIDAY SHOPPING! 25% of total sales are donated back to SBMS's Scholarship Fund.

Of course, you can participate even when you don't attend BECAUSE you can buy GIFT CERTIFICATES! Not at the event, however, Gift Certificates must be purchased at SBMS BEFORE the Book Faire. Plus, your friends and family and neighbors are welcome to attend-the more sales, the more funds that are raised. Remember, the staff and store stay open for us, the sales for SBMS are only the total from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, bring your neighborhood!

Chaucer's Gift Certificate Form

Oct. 15, 6:30pm - 8:12pm

Your Evite will be on its way, this is THE night to gather understandings and impressions of the who and how and why of Montessori. Some of the "what," also. Toddler to Primary to Elementary to Erdkinder. Why is this program so successful? Why are the children happy learners, successful learners...the Montessori mystery is revealed. Or, as we discussed a few years ago, "The Secret is Out!" ("Hot the pot" is the secret for a good pot of tea).

Axxess Books are here, NOW, but not for long...

$30/book (one round of golf pays for the book) = $10/book for SBMS. It's true, Axxess donates $10 to SBMS for every book we sell. Buy 100 and raise $1000 for SBMS scholarships! Of course, that would be a lot of golf...Remember, the Axxess book is a collection of discounts for hundreds of products and services throughout the community. Years ago there were actual tear-out coupons, then a magnetic card, and now it's a facial spray applied daily. No, it's not. It's Friday.
