NEWLETTER AND CALENDAR

With the passing of the first month of the 2018-19 school year, we have settled into a comfortable routine. I can already tell that the children now feel secure (for the most part!) in their environment and that the teachers do also! Evaluation time is passing and real direction is now taking place.
School pictures: Picture day is Friday October 5. These must be ordered in advance. SHOOTING BEGINS PROMPTLY AT 9:00 A.M. Keep in mind that delivery of these photos is usually right before the winter break in December.
Parent Night: Our first Parent Night will be held Thursday October 25 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This evening is for adults only and the subject is “Overview of the Montessori Class.” The first half hour will be for parents to mingle and get to know one another.
Halloween: Although each class at the Montessori school will have a fall celebration around the time of Halloween, we do not celebrate Halloween. We ask in conjunction with this that children do not wear costumes to school. I am sure that they will have an opportunity to wear a favorite costume around the neighborhood on Halloween, and give each of you the opportunity to have a real good workout that evening. Also, it would really help the teachers if you would refrain from sending candy in lunches.
Dropping off your child: Now that the children are more comfortable at school, we ask that at any time after 8:55 a.m. (8:45 a.m. for rooms 4,5).you say goodbye to your child at the door and let him/her come into the classroom on his/her own. A teacher will be there to greet the children. We are beginning classroom activities at this time and are trying to minimize distraction and confusion. It is also easier for a child to distinguish between the world of mom and dad and the world of the classroom this way. When a parent stays inside the classroom for an extended period of time, separation sometimes is more difficult. The child perceives that the classroom community includes mom or dad.
Optional Classes: If your child is taking an optional class, please sign out using the time you take your child from school. We do not want to charge you for extended care during optional class time, so please indicate “dance, art, gym, etc. next to your sign out and we will deduct one hour for extended care.
