Welcome Back to School! 2018-19

Welcome Back To School

Whether you are new to Montessori Academy or a returning student/family, we look forward to having you as a part of our community and hope that you will become involved in our school.  I encourage every student and parent to embrace the opportunity to make this a great school year.  Teachers and administrators have been busy over the summer preparing for the 2018-2019 school year.

Teachers and Administrators have participated in professional development to improve instructional opportunities for our students.  Our #1 goal is to improve student learning.  So regardless of where your student begins the year, we want to help them advance their critical thinking, knowledge, skills, and abilities to problem solve.  If at any time you have a question about what is occurring in your students class, please contact your student’s teacher.  We all need to work together to benefit our students.

We will continue to provide students with hands on experiences that require students to think critically, problem solve, and assess the progress and the outcomes.  We are working hard to prepare your student for life.  Students are heading into the workforce where the skills of listening, problem solving, communication, and collaboration with co-workers located around the world, will be essential to compete in an ever increasingly global economy.  In addition, the amount of technical information in the world continues to grow at a rapid pace.  Integration of technology into schools is an essential and inevitable part of today’s society.  Students must learn and master how to access information, synthesize, and evaluate it.

We recognize that all our families are busy, the first month of school administration and teachers will be giving you a lot of information.  It is important that you review all written and email correspondence as well as short videos posted on our website (we will notify you when they are posted) as it is a great opportunity for you to get an understanding of student/parent expectations, what you can expect from us, as well as understand our communication platform and homework expectations.  Reviewing and understanding all content, will alleviate a lot of questions and save time for our teachers to spend on other items.

Best wishes for a successful school year!

 

Parking Safety

SAFETY FIRST!  Please slowdown in the parking area.  The first few days of school will be extremely busy!

The front of the building is a NO PARKING ZONE!  This area is reserved for our bus and one parking place for our PTO.  Parents picking up a sick student or for medical appointments are able utilize the front of the building outside of school start and ending times (8:15-9:30 am and  3:30 pm).

Please do not park in front of our garbage bins.  You are blocking our services and causing delays when they need to wait for you to move your car.

We do not want to be the parking police, please be considerate and follow our school policies.  Thank you for your understanding.
