February Newsletter, 2020
Tax Time: As you prepare your tax return in the next couple of months, I know some of you will need the school's federal tax I.D. number. It is 26-4639909 Let me know if you need a 2019 summary.
Holiday: As noted on your school calendar, February 17 is a school holiday in honor of presidents Lincoln and Washington.

Parent Conferences: Thank you to those of you who attended the first of two parent conferences of the year. We hope that this was helpful in your understanding of your child’s progress here at Montessori School of San Diego.

Looking Ahead: As registration for summer and next fall approaches (during March) I would invite any of the parents of children in rooms 1, 2, or 3 to schedule an appointment to observe the room 4 classroom. There are some of you busy having us complete evaluations for other schools for the elementary level. We have a great program here! You will be amazed at what these five-seven year-olds are doing! Room 4 parents are invited to visit room 5 also (ages 7 through 9).

School Hours: A reminder that the school does not open until 7:30 a.m. Although a teacher may be present before 7:30 a.m., please wait to bring your child into the class until that time.

Sweaters and Jackets, etc. We REALLY encourage writing your child’s name into clothing. The label is a good spot for this. You would not believe how many articles are lost or unclaimed each year. Periodically we donate lost items.

Illness: We would like to minimize the amount of illness spread among students (and teachers) this year. If your child is coughing, sneezing, fever, etc. Please give him or her a break from school to recover. Also please report any fever or more serious illness to the office. Thank you.
