Feed the Teachers
Conferences = school closed = childcare!
2. If you are a specialist teacher, please know that I am working on the childcare supervision schedule and will let you know ASAP where & when you are needed. I am sorry for the delay in getting this to you - my main reason for the delay... see #3.
3. If you are not needed in any conferences, and are interested in supervising the faculty children for a good chunk of time during conferences, please let me know ASAP. We have "lost" Tyler's help (he has moved on to bigger & brighter things... we miss him already!) and Hattie will be in New York with the Middle School. THANK YOU!
For a limited time William Howard Taft University is offering qualified Montessori Educators an opportunity to earn an accredited Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree for only $3,990.00 in total tuition*.
The 100% online, 30 semester-unit Master of Education (M.Ed.) program is designed for maximum flexibility to accommodate working professionals. Students may begin studies on the 15th of every month. There are no residency requirements, no GRE requirement, and no specific log-in times or assignment due dates. Students complete coursework and receive grades, feedback and assistance from expert faculty who are highly qualified and credentialed in the subject areas that they facilitate.
Admission to the Program requires applicants to have earned an accredited Bachelor’s degree (or foreign equivalent), as well as current employment in education. To apply for admission simply complete the application (http://www.taft.edu/applicationForm.html). The application fee is waived for Montessori educators during this grant program. The University’s no-interest tuition payment plan is also available to Opportunity Grant recipients.

We are working on updating the "event procedure" form that used to be on the W-Drive... this is not to add more work for you, but rather to keep everyone in the loop on what is happening campus wide. Macy is thinking of having a Google Calendar with all events and bus information for next year... what do you think - would this be helpful for you?!
(Do you like how she keeps switching from third to first person in this memo?! She is a little annoying!)
