Dear Washington Montessori Parents, Families, and Partners,
Upon preparing for Spring Break after parent teacher conferences, I am sure that none of us could have ever conceived that we were going to face a worldwide pandemic. This is something so surreal, and that in my mind, only happens in the movies. We, the staff of Washington Montessori are working tirelessly with SLPS at devising plans to service our students and families. Currently, there are approximately 26 sites or more, where you can get meals and hardcopies of work packets for students. In addition, you can find on-line resources at the SLPS homepage at slps.org that will provide supports as we all work to pull together through COVID-19.
Feel free to navigate through our school's website and go to your child's teacher's page to find special school specific instructional tasks and heart-felt messages.
We, the staff of Washington Montessori, are committed to working hard to support our students and families. Please note that this situation is fluid and ever evolving. We will be reaching out to you via emails, texts, phone-calls, DOJO, etc. throughout these unprecented times. We love and miss you!!
HUGS FROM ALL OF US!!!
In the Service of Children,
Lisa R. Small and the Staff of WASHINGTON MONTESSORI
"MOVING FULL STEAM AHEAD!"
Greetings to all my new and returning Washington Montessori Families
I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to serve as your Principal Leader once again. Last, year, we have had an incredible year of teaching and learning. As I have previously expressed, I am committed to supporting our students and families and fostering a love of learning. I will continue to inspire my staff so that they will continue to inspire students and make a positive difference in their lives. We, as a collective, will continue to work as a team by setting high academic, attendance, and behavioral expectations and providing systems of support to ensure that they are met.
We have made significant changes to our school culture to ensure that the needs of our students have been fulfilled. For our existing families, you have been the greatest system of support to us on behalf of your child. I am looking forward to expanding our relationships. Indeed, I am also eager to cultivate rich relationships with my new families.
We all have a vital role in helping our children to become active, lifelong learners. Through a solid and collegial partnership with everyone who has a connection to Washington Montessori, I am confident that we can transform our school into an even better place for our students to learn and grow. I have had the opportunity to witness this first hand. Our Montessori instructional program is headed in a positive direction within our school, and the learning opportunities for our children are expanding. Our kiddos are growing. They are happy.
Please make sure that you check our website at, www.slps.org/Domain/1700, frequently for important dates and activities. To start, we are planning our annual Title 1/Open house, which will take place early in September. This will be an opportunity to meet our school’s staff, your child’s teacher, and our school’s leadership team and to learn more about the Montessori Method.
If you have any questions, please call us at (314) 361-0432.
In the service of Children,
Dr. Lisa Small
