On Wednesday, May 21st, we had our spring graduation program, Le Programe Fantastique… And it was a smashing success! The children and the teachers were so happy that our family and friends were able to come to the program. The children were amazing and the performance was definitely one to remember.
Each child that is graduating this year and heading off to kindergarten or 1st grade in the fall was given a solo or a feature performance in the program. All the children practiced intently for the weeks leading up to the program and their hard work paid off. We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did!
For both the children and the teachers, our favorite song was “Iron Man” and based on the feedback we received, we think it was everyone else’s favorite too! Scout’s mom Meredith was able to capture a video of the entire song and uploaded it to YouTube. Check it out here: Iron Man by Lake Harriet Montessori
As the YouTube link got shared on social media, it was picked up by WCCO’s This Morning. While I was not awake at 6 AM to see it, according to a few parents and grandparents, they saw it on TV. I managed to find the link on their Facebook page. Either way the children were excited to learn that they were famous! 🙂
After the program, we headed down to the gym where we met our family and friends and enjoyed a delicious potluck dinner. Thank you to everyone for bringing such delicious food and drinks! It was such a fun celebration! The teachers are so proud of the children and all their hard work. It has been amazing to watch our graduating students learn and blossom in their time here at Lake Harriet Montessori. They will be missed!
