New Trees are Taking Root at Parker Woods Montessori

New Trees are Taking Root at Parker Woods Montessori

Hello Parker Woods Montessori parents and PTO members:

The organization Taking Root is most graciously gifting our school at least 10 trees plus mulch and water bags. They are also bringing some volunteers to help plant them but they need help from us as well.

***Planting Day is Saturday June 27, 9:00 – 2:00 p.m.***

Planting new trees, trimming the live trees and weeding the grounds are the goals for the day. Once the new trees are in, Bill Berger has graciously committed to watering them.

An arborist from Natorps walked the school and made recommendations for the trees to be planted, expert consideration for the beautification of our school that will permanently impact the grounds of Parker Woods Montessori! Any help will be greatly appreciated, for all or part of the day. Please let me know if you would like to help. Thanks!

Sincere Regards,

Brook Agliata

Join Us in the Northside 4th of July Parade

Parker Woods Montessori Families! We hope you are having a great Summer so far. The Northside 4th of July Parade is coming up and we are getting a group together to walk in the parade. We will be highlighting our new teaching garden, so kids can dress up or wear anything to do with gardens: flowers, vegetables, caterpillars, butterflies, etc. If you don’t have anything, no worries, we will find something for you to carry or wear. The parade starts at 12 noon, and there are shuttles from McKie Rec Center to the parade staging lot from 9:30 – 11:30. We ask everyone walking to be there by 11:30 AM. Please let us know if you are interested in walking or have questions by sending an email message to Rachel Morgan at You can also learn more about the parade by checking out the website:

Hope to see you all there!
