April 13-17 Distance Learning Continues
A Message from our Interim Director, Mr. Mike
I am so grateful to each of you for accepting the current situation we have had thrust on us. You have met the challenges of transitioning to a home instruction environment. You have worked with teachers to insure the continuation of the students' educational programs.
I am also grateful to our incredible employees of Maria Montessori Academy. They too have made a transition that I never thought possible. In just two days they began to put together a distance learning program that I feel is one of the best I have heard of, even among schools that are heavily immersed in technology. I am in awe of such a professional, hardworking group of people that have the best interest of your children in mind.
I look forward to Mr. Micah Hirokawa coming to the school and being the director. He brings a great deal of experience and is well qualified to lead this wonderful educational community for many years. I have truly been grateful for the opportunity to join with you for this time that I have had as interim director.

Ms. Andrea's Counseling Corner
I hope this email finds you all safe and well. The last few weeks have been stressful, confusing, and uncertain for everyone, adults and children alike. I have actually been out of town dealing with a family situation for the past two weeks, so I apologize about not being in touch sooner. Now that I am back, I am available for consultation, support, and questions. I can do Zoom meetings with students (and parents), phone calls, email, and packets for social/emotional learning skills. I am also preparing some video lessons for different age levels and I will have information about how to access those in Maria Montessori Moments newsletter this Monday. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please reach out if you would like to set up a meeting or have any concerns or anything that I can help you with.
Thank you for all you do!
