Book Request: May Monthly Theme/ Middle Eastern Heritage and Culture
Breakthrough Montessori

The May Monthly Theme celebrates Middle Eastern Heritage and Culture. As a special note, Ramadan is observed annually and this year it runs  from May 15th to June 14th. This observance is practiced by Muslims in the Middle East and around the world. During this time period, individuals fast from dawn until sunset.

The staff facilitators for this month are Mrs. Shahad, aftercare assistant and Mrs. Landy, front desk receptionist. They plan to share information with the children regarding culture, religion, food, clothing, the arts and celebrations. There will also be several activities around the theme for children at 3pm throughout the month.

Families are being asked to donate books that highlight Middle Eastern culture and history. Some example of books parents can either buy or borrow from library are below. A sign up will be posted on Konstella for those who are able to donate. Please specify if this book is to be returned or not. Books can be given during drop off or pick up with a note specifying it is for May Monthly Theme.
