Montessori Academy's vision is that each student
will become an independent, confident, motivated learner, and a responsible community member as a result of the dynamic partnership between
students, parents, and teachers.
This partnership within the exceptional Montessori environment, while developing these characteristics, enables each student to become a life-long learner.
Dear Room 3 Parents,
We’re nearing the end of another great year! Although we’ve spent way too much time inside this year (the longer than usual winter months as well as the many recent rainy days) this year has passed extremely quickly!
In the classroom, we’re still busy. The geography shelf is now focused on the continent of Australia while the science shelf has been sprouting seeds. Chains are constantly being counted, books are being read (we have a few recent additions to our list of those who now can read) and continuous handwriting practice is “paying off”. We’re getting better every day!
We’d like to say again that last week was fabulous! We have the best parents ever! Thanks again for your overwhelming generosity.
All of you have now heard the sad news that Lisa Hill will be leaving us after the last day of school. It’s been a great five years teaching together and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I do hope that she finds time to visit us next year and see how the children have grown (it’s shocking when you don’t spend every day with them).
We will miss spending each day with her. We’ll miss her “nicknames” for us, her songs and her “way” with us all. At the same time…we wish her the best. She deserves it.
Many of you ladies had the chance to meet Lisa’s replacement, Rhonda McKay, during our indoor picnic in honor of Mother’s Day this past Friday. For those of you who did not meet her…if your child will be attending the summer program here at MA, Rhonda will be helping me, Leanna Pound, with Day Camp. Visit us in the school’s back yard and I’ll introduce you.
Leanna Pound and Lisa Hill
