We hope that everyone is getting ready for the upcoming holiday and will enjoy some time off during the holiday season!
La Maternelle French Academy is Houston’s premier french language immersion preschool!
On December 11th we will have the great honor and privilege to have a special visit from Santa Claus. He will be here at 09:30 am to visit each class and pick up the children wish lists. Please notify us in advance if your child(ren) is going to absent that day. Thank you !
Autumn has finally arrived in Houston.
We had a little taste of nice weather these past few days: cooler temperatures and sunny sky!
La Maternelle will be closed on Monday, October 12th of 2015 in observance of Columbus Day.
Since 1970 (Oct. 12), the holiday has been fixed to the second Monday in October.
PICTURE DAY – October 20th & 21st 2015
Lifetouch Pictures will be at La Maternelle for two days to take individual and group pictures.
- Tuesday, October 20th for children enrolled in PS, MS & GS
- Wednesday, October 21st for children enrolled in Creche & TPS
The picture will be taken in the new building (in the gym), please proceed to the new building if you need to take pictures with your child’s siblings. Also, if your child does not come to school on Tuesdays we will take your child’s picture on Wednesday. Be sure to coordinate any changes of clothes with your teachers ahead of time.
We opened a new classroom and we still have openings in Pre-K 3. Children must be three years old by December 1, 2015 in order to be eligible for Pre-K 3. All children must be toilet-trained prior to entry.
Dear La Maternelle families,
I want to welcome all of our new and returning students and families. We are very excited to start this new school year and we look forward to a great year with your children. In a few days, your child will begin to have his or her first experiences with school. Your child will discover a new world, make new friends and adapt to new schedules and routines. This is an essential moment for him/her, but also for you especially if this is your first child.
Some children may need more time than others to adjust to new environments, but please know we will do our best to help with the transition. Saying goodbye on the first day of school is not easy, if you have any concerns regarding this transition period, please feel free to discuss this with your child’s teacher or Miss Charlotte.
To all our new families, we’re on Facebook! Please visit us every day to add comments or view pictures of your child. Search for “La Maternelle French Academy” and “Like” us for school updates and information.
