Primary Classroom Procedures
Morning Drop Off and Dismissal Procedures Kindergarten students will be able to be dropped off in the elementary carpool circle in the mornings. Preschool students need to be walked Snack In order to ensure the safety of all students, there will be no shared snack. We are asking that you please pack your child a snack EVERYDAY for them to eat during our designated morning time.
Lunch Full day students will need to bring lunch on a daily basis. Unfortunately we are unable to refrigerate lunches so please be sure to include ice packs if necessary. In order to help foster each student’s independence, please pack a lunch that your child is able to take out and put away by himself/herself. We are always available to assist your child should they need help, but when they can do it themselves the smile of, “I can do it!” is rewarding for all. We are not able to heat food up for students.
Birthday Celebrations We love sharing your child’s special day. Please do not send treats to school as we cannot share food/items. We will continue the Montessori tradition of Walking Around the Sun.
Specials (Art, Music, PE) Kindergarten students will have Art, Music, and PE every Friday afternoon.
Parent/Teacher Conferences Parent/teacher conferences take place twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. Watch for more details later in the year.
