Pacific Crest Weekly Email September 28th, 2017

Dear Families,

Date change: All Parent Ed to be moved to October 26.  We are changing the date to take advantage of an amazing opportunity to hear from an internationally renowned Montessori education expert, David Kahn.  He will be in Seattle for the Association Montessori Internationale’s (AMI) Bold Goal meetings, which will be convened and facilitated by a Pacific Crest community member. Please take full advantage of this remarkable opportunity to spend time with David Kahn. It is a real honor for Pacific Crest to host this Montessori pioneer. There will not be an event on October 12th.
