Hello MH Families,
We are excited to kick off the 17-18 school year this week! Please see the attached notes from the Back to School Night. Please be sure to send the following supplies this week:
- Water Bottle
- 2-3 changes of clothing (please include underwear, shorts, and shirt)
- Water cup (for Eagles room only)
- Inside Shoes (Crocs style – to be left at school)
- Sun hat (optional)
- Crib sheet and blanket if you child will be napping at school
- Towel for water play this week
- Lunch box with ice pack
Please remember to LABEL all items and leave them in your child’s cubby. We will help them get their items to the appropriate places at school. Please also keep in mind our media free policy and be sure your child’s supplies are void of any commercials/characters.
Typically, we follow PPS in regards to closures due to inclement weather. PPS is closing two hours early tomorrow due to the excessive heat. Since we were able to stay open during the heat wave this summer, I think we will be fine for our regular schedule tomorrow. If more news arises regarding horrible air quality, we may reconsider, but otherwise we will carry on as usual. We hope to be able to go outside for water play so please send extra clothes and a towel. Please remember to label everything!
If you missed Back to School Night, you did not get to meet our new Teacher Assistant, Peter, in the Eagles room or our new Spanish Teacher, Marina. Peter comes to us as a former PPS para. He is VERY tall and has an easy and calm demeanor. We are happy to have a male teacher join our team! Marina is from Argentina and has been teaching Spanish at another Montessori school. We are excited to have her join us. Cristina let us know this summer that she will be taking a position with a law firm to work towards her goal of becoming a lawyer in the US (did you know she was a lawyer in Spain?). We wish her luck in her new endeavors and are happy that she will still be a member of our community as a parent! Her son, Thomas, will start in the Quetzal room tomorrow!
Please take a moment to introduce yourself to our new team members and welcome them into our community!
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!
