Wednesday, July 17, is Open House for the 1st Class Montessori Schools, at both locations: 1336 Peabody in Midtown and 1725 Appling Road in Cordova. The teachers and administrators from each of the multiethnic, multicultural schools will host the events at their schools from 5pm to 8pm, for prospective students and their parents. Classes include Preschool through 3rd grade.
Registration for the 2013-2014 school year is next week, July 22-26. Appointments must be set by calling the school and confirming with the director. The hours are between 8:00am and 5:30pm each day.
"We want to show the parents and their children our programs, such as music, piano classes, performing arts, and exposing them to foreign language," according to Evelyn Thorpe-Hibbler, owner and operator of both schools.
