Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,
Greetings to our returning families and WELCOME to our new families! Montessori Academy is a great place to have your child receive their early years of education. Our motto "Believe in the Child", is what the learning experience will be for each and every child. Our goal is to ensure that your child gets the best possible education while at Montessori Academy.
School begins at 7:30 A.M.; with breakfast from 7:30-7:50. If you arrive after 7:55 A.M., your child is considered late. We ask that you follow our procedures, and proceed to the Main Office. Children must sign in and receive a late pass. If you walk your child to class, you will also need a visitor's pass at this time. Dismissal is at 2:00 P.M. If you pick up your child, you must arrive no later than 2:15 P.M. Please park in the lot across the street to avoid disruptions for busses.
We will be holding our Family Orientation on Thursday, September 1, 2013 at 6:00 P.M.
We ask that you join us at a brief overview of what it means to be a student at Montessori Academy, what a Montessori school has to offer, how parents can get involved and the wonderful learning experiences that you can expect for your child this year. Each family will receive a folder with the Parent Handbook and a few school forms to complete. We will offer a tour of the facility for our new families, visit classrooms and meet your child's teacher. This is the beginning of many experiences at Montessori Academy for you and your child. We invite our returning families to join us as well!
Montessori Academy sets high expectations and we hold everyone accountable students, staff and families. It will be important that parents work with the school staff to understand and monitor your child's learning throughout the school year. In September, we will hold our annual Open House/Welcome Back & PTA Membership Drive. This event will look deeper at the work we do; the school's academic standing and goals for the year. Together, we can accomplish great things. How can you help?
- Be sure your child comes to school every day and arrive on time (Goal: 95% attendance)
- Be sure your child reads at least 30 minutes a day (this includes doing homework)
- Support our dress code policy (children look great in style)
- Practice the Montessori Grade & Courtesy and Peace curriculum
