Curriculum

Reading Rodeo & Círculo

Books on a ShelfReading Rodeo & Círculo are an individualized and leveled take-home reading/book exchange program funded & coordinated by PTA volunteers, with support and guidance from teacher, for all Kinder-3rd grade students in the Traditional (Reading Rodeo) and TWBI/Spanish Immersion (Círculo) programs.

This program has traditionally been supported during the summer months as well with a weekly “Book Exchange” held every Tuesday night coinciding with the open times of the South Davis Montgomery Satellite Branch of Yolo County Library.

NOTE: Parents, please help us replenish our Círculo and Reading Rodeo libraries by returning any Círculo and/or Reading Rodeo books your child may have in his/her possession from the previous school year or the summer reading program.  Please return them to your child’s classroom as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or if you are interested in being a weekly Círculo or Reading Rodeo volunteer, please contact our Círculo/Reading Rodeo Committee Chairs Alicia Statham at alidavig@gmail.com, or Michelle Secrest at michelleinperu@yahoo.com.

 Walker Creek Ranch6th Grade Outdoor Education Week

Each year, the 6th grade students at MME are treated to the Walker Creek Outdoor Education experience. In this week-long science-based outdoor school, the students get an opportunity to learn about their natural world within a hands-on setting and they get to experience many wonderful moments with their 6th grade peers. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience where students get to stay in a cabin for 4 nights, hike, dance, and interact with other 6th grade students from our district.

6th Grade Outdoor EducationThis school year, the 6th grade students from MME will be attending Walker Creek Outdoor School from November 27, 2017 through December 1, 2017.  The PTA supports this special activity by supplementing a portion of the costs not covered by the district in order to remove some of the barriers of attendance that some of our families face.


Davis Enterprise May 6 2014Science Expo

MME PTA is proud to host the 4th Annual Marguerite Montgomery Science Expo on Friday, May 4, 2018.  Our goal for the Science Expo is to promote and recognize science in everyday life and to highlight science-related careers.  Like in previous years, many of the activities and exhibits incorporate aspects of the district and state science standards, particularly with respect to experiential and hands-on learning to our students in K – 6th grades.  Many of these activities will be led by UC Davis and Sacramento City College students.

*If you are interested in setting up an exhibit or participating in an exhibit, please contact Mitch Singer at mhsinger2124@gmail.com and we can help you with your idea and find some like-minded parents to help you set up and run your exhibit.
