Elementary Parent Education Night

Elementary Parent Education Night

  • La Printaniere Montessori School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

La Printaniere is thrilled to be hosting Dr. Holly Groh for a talk with our Elementary parents focusing on the topic of screens in the home and how to build the best environment for elementary-aged children.  Join us for an informative and judgment-free discussion!

Dr. Holly Gore Groh is a former ophthalmologist / corneal surgeon and mom of four. She and her family were Baton Rouge transplants following Hurricane Katrina, and her children (now ages 14, 16, 20, and 21) attended La Printaniere from 2005-2010. During her time as a new parent in New Orleans, she had the opportunity to learn from a foremost Montessori expert about preparing a home environment that correlates and harmonizes with the educational philosophy. She has also spent the past 15 years researching the biological and social effects of screens – from TV to the age of smart phones – on children and families. As her children grew older, Holly became deeply interested in the benefits of a Montessori-style home, including limited access to screens, and has seen firsthand the rewards of implementing these ideas in her own life.

Wear TEAL for Ovarian Cancer Awareness!

International Peace Day, observed around the world in September, brings attention to a range of important causes. September is also Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

This year, La Printaniere honors both by partnering with the Kelli Leigh Richmond Ovarian Cancer Foundation and Kelli’s Kloset.

On Friday, September 20, we are celebrating by:

GIVING BACK

We are collecting lightly used children’s and women’s clothing and accessories (scarves, shoes, purses, belts, jewelry) to donate to Kelli’s Kloset.

SHOWING OUR COLORS

We’re wearing TEAL in in support of Ovarian Cancer Awareness.

ABOUT KELLI’S KLOSET:

The Foundation was begun in memory of Kelli Richmond, aunt of a La Printaniere Elementary student and classmate & neighbor of Ms. Erin and her husband.

During her 2 1/2 year journey with Ovarian Cancer, Kelli noticed that most patients gain and lose weight during treatments, often changing clothes sizes considerably. She was very concerned about those who lack the resources to buy new clothes while undergoing cancer treatment. Kelli’s dream was to create a place where all women with cancer could access clothes that fit for FREE.

Thanks to Kelli and her parents, Kelli’s Kloset has provided free clothing and accessories for women with cancer, their children, and all children battling cancer since June 2014.
