Wednesday April 9 is our last practice at the Canada Games Centre under the volunteer coaching of David Eikelboom and Dominic Bradford. Only those children participating in the Wrestling Tournament will be at this practice. Pick up is from the CGC at 3:30 for all those children. The grade 1 children will be at school that day for pick up. Dominic will drive back any children who need to return to YMS at 3:30 for pick up or after school care.
Due to the success of this year and ongoing interest in the great work that we are doing at the Yukon Montessori School, we are increasing our class size and bringing in a second teacher.
We are pleased to announce that Laurie Parker will be joining us in September.
Laurie was raised in the small town of Hanover Ontario. She graduated from Brock University with a combined degree in English and Sociology, then completed her Casa Montessori diploma with the Toronto Montessori Institute. After more than 20 years of exciting Casa experience, Laurie wanted to try a new challenge and so for the past six years has worked in the Lower Elementary class of Sunshine Montessori School in Stratford Ontario.
Every day in the classroom confirms for Laurie that Dr. Montessori was absolutely right about how children should be educated. Laurie and her husband Vance are looking forward to many adventures in Whitehorse. They have four children, a cat named Baird, and a hedgehog named Henry.
