Upper Elementary has a new name now – The Sapphires. Sapphire represent, hope, beauty and truth. We looked at what sapphires mean and then we created our own sapphires using our imagination and art supplies.

We are starting a track and cross country team in the fall. The elementary students were involved in voting for a school team mascot. We had to choose between beaver and mustang; the mustang won. A mustang represents, speed, strength and victory.

Have you seen the new school sign? International Montessori School Auburn (IMS – Auburn) is now the new name of our school. The tree represents our close community and the globe shows that we care and we welcome other people and cultures around the world. I hope you like our newsletter. You can look forward to a new “Sapphires Planet” letter every
month.
