If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to stop by the office.

It’s the holiday of giving! We will be donating gifts to the children of Franklin County.

Casa Dia Montessori, Watson

If you won’t be at school for certain days during the holiday weeks, please inform the office in writing. Giving us notice helps us with counts and credits to any vacations used. If you won’t be at the center on certain days and that changes, please call us as soon as possible, as we may have let other teachers off because of the low counts.

For this month’s holiday parties, please check with your child’s class for the specific date and times, and a list of items that might be needed. Thank you!
