Dear Parents,

 Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful Winter Break. It was great to see your students return back to the classroom with ease and to listen to their adventures they’ve experienced during the break.

Thank you for attending our Parent Night last week where we had the opportunity to glimpse into Elementary Montessori Math. I hope this gave you a quick glance at how we as Montessori Guides work with your students. With the understanding of the child's active imagination and the reasoning mind carrying over to the second plane, we personalize lessons to each child to engage their reasoning minds that enables them to arrive at abstraction. This simply means, they will be able to understand and carry over information into future learnings.

For Martin Luther King, Jr. day, we talked about Dr. Kings’ journey as a person and his vision through many books and discussions, which gave the students an opportunity converse with each other one the day and the meaning of it. Allowing so, they were able to express many wonderful thoughts and ideas after listening to these stories written by different Authors.

We are excited to announce that our Going-Out program has extended towards going to the library. This will further assist your student in realizing that all the answers they seeks for their projects, research or personal interest are not readily accessible in the classroom but within arms reach. With this concept in mind we are allowing the students to become more aware of the outside world and gearing them towards independence. I hope every one will have a wonderful weekend. 

Best,

Mr.Fernando, Mr. Denis and Ms. Lucy
