HTM News and Events | June 2017
A Note from our Head of School
We hope you're all having a wonderful time and enjoying all the fun that comes along with the break. We've seen lots of pictures already from our friends who are traveling or simply enjoying the summer at home - we love to see your smiling faces!
If you were a part of our 2016-2017 family community, thank you for a fantastic year. It's hard to believe how much we accomplished in one year...it's definitely worth celebrating! Thank you for being a part of every milestone!
We are excited to welcome many new families to our HTM community for our 2017-2018 school year. You are joining a wonderful group of warm and caring families and children, and I know they are looking forward to saying hello!
Please make sure to watch your inbox over the summer, as we'll be in communication about some updates for the coming year. Also, note that our office hours will be very limited over the summer; email is the best way to contact us if you need immediate support.
Finally, please be sure to review the dates listed below. Remember, your attendance is required for our Parent Orientation Meeting on August 15.
Have an amazing summer and we will see you in August!
Parents often ask for ideas of how to incorporate Montessori methods at home over the summer. There are many great resources and websites available to encourage you along the journey!
We have compiled a list of fantastic websites, directories and videos of Montessori resources on our website. Be sure to check them out here!
Summer Play Dates
Looking for a way to let your kiddos play with their HTM buddies (current and future) while you catch up with some fellow parents? Our PTO has a great solution - HTM Summer Play Dates!
These play dates are open to all HTM students, past and present, as well as any other family or friends who want to join in on the fun. We encourage parents and children to wear green HTM shirts, if you have them, so that we can easily recognize each other.
The next play date is scheduled for June 24 at 9:30 AM at the Brentwood Skate Center.
The PTO will announce July play dates soon, as well as details for an end-of-summer play date at Deer Run in August.
As always, these parent-organized play dates are optional. If you have any questions, please email Kathy Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy the play dates!
