February 26, 2021 Updates
Our week of celebrating Montessori Education and showing appreciation for all the parts of our Montessori community has been so uplifting! We hope that everyone shares those good feelings with others who may be looking for a school like ours. During this time of COVID and with so many schools operating remotely, families are searching for a safe in-person environment, a caring community, and an excellent academic program for their children. Invite them to check us out! Also, we hope that you check out the fun photos from this week below!
Our re-accreditation visit scheduled for April 2020 last year was postponed by SCISA due to COVID. It has now been rescheduled for April 29, 2021. We will be sharing more information about this upcoming external review in the coming weeks.
March 19 is a school holiday/teacher professional development day. All programs will be closed. Please mark your calendars.
March 22-26 is Parent/Teacher conference week. Monday, Mar. 22 is a student holiday for infants through upper elementary. Extended care only will be available for infants, toddlers, and primary.
We look forward to Primary’s parade on Tuesday, Mar. 2 in honor of Dr. Seuss Day. We get to see some of our favorite characters from the books that we love so much - The Cat in the Hat, Thing One & Thing Two, The Grinch, Sam I Am, and many more! Reading opens the door to our world… and beyond! This weekend is a great time to read one of your favorite childhood books with your child.
Hope you get to enjoy some outside time this weekend!

On Wednesday, February 24, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH, reported that COVID-19 cases in the United States have declined for 5 consecutive weeks, and new hospitalizations have been consistently down since early January. The number of new Covid-19 cases reported to the CDC each day continues to decrease, but case counts remain high. As of Feb 22, the 7-day average of new cases is 64,148. Keep up these healthy habits to help slow the spread in your community:
- Wear a mask over your nose and mouth.
- Stay 6 feet away from others.
- Avoid crowds.
- Make sure indoor spaces are well ventilated.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
- Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Get vaccinated when it's available to you.
Stay safe and wishing you continued good health,
