Sapphire Room is a Children’s House classroom on the Perrysburg Campus. Stephanie Sullivan and Ruth Zajac are the classroom’s co-teachers.

Our Grandparents and Special Friends had a busy morning of learning and fun.  It was great to see so many in attendance. The children and teachers really enjoyed sharing their environment and work. photo-26photo-29photo-27photo-28photo-25

You’re invited to attend this month’s First Thursday presentation at the Perrysburg Campus on Thursday, May 7, from 8:30-9:30 a.m.


Maria Montessori said, “Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.” She believed that by giving kids space to explore and discover for themselves, they would have a greater understanding and appreciation for the world around them. To help promote those discoveries and independence around your home, come to the Great Room at the Perrysburg Campus for this presentation by your child’s teachers!

First Thursday will be presented by Jean Miller and Tricia Miller-Purvis.

Spring Sing

Spring Sing: Building a Better World

6:30 p.m. – University of Toledo Recital Hall
Perrysburg and Toledo Kindergarten Spring Concert


After studying the parts of a plant and a seed, we identified how seeds can be transported from one place to another.  This served as our introduction to our study of birds.  We learned about the characteristics of the birds, the parts of a bird, and identified different kinds of birds and their calls.

Our next continent of study has been Asia.  Children have had the opportunity to do puzzle and coloring maps of Asia, try on authentic Asian clothing, play Asian musical instruments, and learn about Asian animals.  Children were also invited to sample Sushi as they listened to the story Yoko.  Many of the children tasted and liked the Sushi.  Once we finish with Asia, we will move on to the study of Africa.

Grandparent’s Day

Although the Spring time weather is not that convincing, May and Grandparent’s Day is not that far away.  We love having grandparents visit the classroom.  If a grandparent is not able to visit, your student is welcome to bring in a picture of their grandparents to share.

Clothing Drive

We will once again be participating in the Great American Clothes Collection.  From Wednesday, May 20 – Friday, May 22 the Perrysburg Campus will be collecting old clothes, shoes, and fabrics/textiles.  Usable clothing will be donated to charities and fibers from the rest are recycled into roofing materials, bond paper, industrial wiping cloths and remanufactured textiles.  Questions:  contact Tricia Purvis.
