January was a splendid month! Aside from the rain, the weather has been perfect for work in the outdoor environment. We wrapped up our discussion of MLK and are looking forward to celebrating the Chinese New Year as well as the Persian New Year in the coming weeks.
We also had the pleasure of Celebrating Marek's 5th birthday with him and his mother, Heather! Thank you for sharing your special day with us!
As you know, Parent Observations and Conferences commence this Monday (Feb 2nd). The office will give you observation guidelines. However, I would like to remind you of the following: please accept either coffee, tea or water when the children offer to serve you. This is an opportunity for them to apply grace and courtesy and express their human tendency to 'commune' with you! Remember to stay seated in the chair, you are there to observe. If a child approaches you for any other reason, please say "I am here to watch you work."
I am so grateful, enlightened and moved by the power of Creo's Montessori Journey. This was the first of many, and was truly a 'life-changing' experience. If you were unable to attend, I strongly encourage you to attend the next one. This is Creo's richest delivery of Parent Education. It is the key to a deeper understanding of the inner connectedness of authentic Montessori. Thank you so much for for those who attended! It was humbling to hear your honest reflections.
Miss Lauren and Ms. Yadira
