A Note From Our Principal,
Happy New Year! We can’t wait to spend 2019 with you and your children. Thank you to all who participated in our holiday giving initiative last month. We partnered with Jannus EO and were able to donate over 100 winter coats/hats/ gloves/ pants and winter outdoor games for the Idaho refugee families here in Boise. Your generosity is truly appreciated! We also enjoyed having our Montessori alumni with us during winter break camp. Thank you to all who were able to join us!
Please take a moment to read through the news and reminders below and let myself or anyone else on our administrative team know if you have questions or concerns.
Please use extra caution while driving in our parking lot this winter. Our busiest entrance/exit is a shared driveway with residents, senior citizens, other businesses and our students. Be mindful of your speed and of the pedestrians using the parking lot at all hours.
New classroom signs are now posted outside your child’s classroom door. These signs are to help better communicate where you will find your child in the event the class or your child has moved to another class upon pick up. These signs are located near the class door, next to your room’s daily schedule.
Priority Re-Enrollment for 2019 – 2020
Soon it will be time to make decisions regarding your children’s re-enrollment for the next school year. We want to ensure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. In February, we will be hosting a Kindergarten orientation for parents of children who will be 5 by September 1st, 2019. Montessori Academy in Eagle will also be hosting an Elementary orientation to help assist in making informed decisions. Our orientation nights will be specific to our school but we will welcome any and all questions.
Priority enrollment for Parkcenter Montessori Academy will begin on the last week of January and end in February. Priority enrollment is open ONLY to currently enrolled families. Once Priority enrollment closes, we will begin to offer any unreserved openings to families on our wait list.
