"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong.  Because someday in your life you will have been all these things."

  • Dot Day & Grandparents Day at REMS


    September 15th is known as International Dot Day which is a day that stems from the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds that encourages all of us to think about how we want to leave our own mark on the world.  Roseland Montessori celebrated this day along with the grandparents of our students.  Grandparents, whom were encouraged to wear dots, came and ate lunch, dressed up for photos in the photo booth, and then created a personalized family tree with their own "dots", their fingerprints.  Many wonderful memories were made with loved ones, and stories were shared about how our relatives have left their own mark in the world.  Pictured are Chad Hillstrom and his grandfather enjoying lunch.

  • Mr. Hugh Wallace, Principal at O.W. Dillon video conferences with a school in Alaska

    O.W. Dillon Elementary Principal Hugh Wallace and a group of 6th graders spent some time on Monday, September 15th video conferencing with some high school students in Alaska.  The students had been studying the Civil Rights movement and wanted to ask questions about some of the events.  As someone who lived in Birmingham during the church bombing (the 51st anniversary of which was September 15th) and personally knew Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mr. Wallace was an excellent source of information for the students.

Saints & Vaccaro?

Roseland Elementary Montessori Saints shirts and jeans day

TPSS held a fund raising drive for United Way where students and teachers can dress in jeans and Saints gear for $1.  Not only are we, at Roseland Montessori, very excited to collect money for such a great cause, but we are also thrilled to see our administrator's name in black and gold!  Mrs. Rhonda Vaccaro was all smiles today as she watched some of the jerseys bear her own last name.  We won't spoil her excitement and remind her that the Vaccaro represents the Saints player, Kenny Vaccaro.  Pictured is Mrs. Rhonda Vaccaro and Darbi Tolar, PreK student at Roseland Montessori.
