Dear Parents of Lower Elementary Room 105,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at The Montessori Academy! Please review the documents below and return all forms to the office no later than Friday, August 14th.
What an adventure we have had! Change is always difficult, but let’s all embrace what is ahead to successfully move forward. My goal is to provide an outstanding education for each student as we navigate through the next stage of the current times.
Currently, we are making plans for school to begin on August 24th. Fortunately, we have a large amount of space in the lower elementary which will easily allow for social distancing. Students will be provided a permanent weekly work space. Each child will keep all supplies at their space in a crate. They will also be provided with the necessary materials each day. We are working to get individual works to make things more simple. For example, each student will have their own instructional clock, fraction pieces, and ruler. I am working on getting a stamp game for each student as well as a movable alphabet for those that need it. Doors and windows will be kept open as much as possible. Students will arrive and dismiss through our classroom’s exterior door, and we will stay as self-contained as needed. This includes eating lunch in the classroom.
Please review the phase-in schedule (below). This allows for an easier transition to the environment.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and enjoy the rest of the summer!
