There is so much going on right now that I thought it best to send out a tiny little Montessori Moment to keep everyone informed.

First things first. Liz stopped by and is in good spirits and misses everyone.  I shared your kind wishes for a quick recovery.  She is still in the process of evaluation.  We will be certain to keep you informed.  (Thanks, Alicia!)

Parent Information Nights (PIN) 6:30-8:00
These are wonderful parent get-togethers.  Teachers and parents spend a bit of time in a pre-meeting mixer and tour classrooms (good refreshments too!)  We then spend a bit of time discussing Central programming, Montessori philosophy, child development and/or parent/home considerations.  Parents support other parents and teachers share what they know.  Attending parents receive V hour credit as well.  Central offers childcare ($10.00 an hour).  Contact us if you would like childcare.  
  1. Pre-Primary/Primary:  Sept. 8th Focus:  Developmental Stages-Benefits of each and how to be support your child during each stage.  Wow!
  2. Upper El and Middle School:  Sept. 15th Meet at 2001 E. Broad Street.   Focus:  STEM
  3. Lower El:  Sept. 29th  Focus:  What’s up with all the Kissing?  (Sounds...interesting….)
  4. Infant and Toddler: Oct. 6th Focus:  What are the 3 gifts?
Special Note:  If your child is possibly eligible to transition from one level to another during the Winter Break, (turning 6, 9 or 11 years old between September 30th and the end of December), please attend the PIN events for the next level PIN if possible.  Much information and great time to meet/reunite with parents and teachers...

Coffee and Kids
The coffee isn’t for the kids!  It’s for our new parents!  If you are new to our Central Montessori School Community, then stop by for a bit.  Bridgette Huff, I-Nubia Reid and Theresa Ronquillo are hosting this casual Jefferson Park event for our newest families. Did we mention there might be coffee?   

Special Staff Happenings
Studio 5 is currently exhibiting Oura’s art work!  It is lovely and whimsical. Your children will love it!

Alicia Strum has work on display at Art 180.  If you have time, be inspired by the work Alicia did with Richmond City students and their book designs.  Lovely.

Trey Pollard is featured in this week’s Style magazine and his work with Richmond City Orchestra.  It seems that is is all “music’ to the ears.  Read about one of his many wonderful contributions.  

Read below the wonderful invitation from Heidi Ruggs (one of our newest parents).  I hope to see you and your children there!

Thank you for keeping us updated on the things happening inside your Montessori. It is such a great feeling especially for us who have siblings in that school. I can see that you consistently post updates regarding your school activities. That is a good part of your over all service. I will tell my mother to continue enrolling my younger sister in this school next year.

Actually, there are special moments we need to have while we are schooling, especially for the young ones. as their second home, it's the school obligation to give these kids not just knowledge they need to learn, but the experience they should get while they are young. We need to teach them how to make friends, and be able to express themselves the right way, There are lots of things we can teach these young ones, actually!
