Middle School Performance “Unclaimed” Monday 5/8 & Tuesday 5/9 at 7PM

The Middle School is busy writing and rehearsing its annual performance. The newly titled show, “Unclaimed”, is a dramatic miracle that has taken shape. The creation of this show is like a bit of alchemy. The musings of individuals, small groups of collaborators, and full class brain storming stirs the pot and eventually turns to gold.  Ultimately, the performance is the vehicle we use to process our experiences in Alabama and the year’s work in exploring the evolution of the American identity. Always fascinating, powerful, tuneful, funny, and moving! The Middle School performances are Monday, May 8 at 7:00pm (with a festive reception afterwards!) and Tuesday, May 9 at 7:00pm in the Arts Barn Theater. There will also be a school show on Tuesday morning at 10:00am. We hope to see you there!

Math Day at Hilltop, Sat. Feb 11, 9-11:30 am

Math Day at Hilltop, Saturday, Feb 11 from 9 -11:30 am. Bring a dish to share for lunch and we’ll provide pizza.

Learn how math is taught the Montessori way. Parents will be treated to a journey of our math curriculum through the years, from toddler to eighth grade, with ample opportunity to ask questions along the way.

Meanwhile Hilltop students are invited to a very special, FREE, Circus and Storytelling Workshop with local performers, Bill Forchion, Billy Higgins and Kali Quinn in our Arts Barn. With the help of these talented performing professionals, the children will stage a performance that very morning after the math presentations. You won’t want to miss that!

RSVP by emailing frontdesk@hilltopmontessori.org with the number of adults for the math presentation.
