Message from the Shaw Hens

Big picture

Greetings Shaw Montessori,


It’s the 5 hens here this week. We understand that all of our other campus animal friends have written to you and we wanted to put in our clucks too!


Life without you here has just not been the same! We miss watching you during PE, while you play kickball, soccer, and run around on the field or relax on the bleachers with friends. And of course, we miss dodging the occasional ball that lands in our yard!


Everyday Mr. Neville comes and opens our coop each day so that we can stretch our legs, eat some bugs and enjoy the sunshine. In the afternoon Mr. Geno puts us back in our coop so that we are safe and can get back to the business of laying those beautiful eggs. They also make sure that we enjoy some of the greens that you planted in our garden.


Speaking of eggs, we know that you enjoy coming to gather the fruits of our labor—our eggs—for use in your classroom cooking projects. While you are not here we are giving our eggs to our weekend caretaker. She comes to check on us through the weekend and also brings us vegetable treats eggxactly like you used to!


We miss you very much and cannot wait to hear your merry voices and see your fun frolicking once again.


Scratch, scratch, peck, peck sweet friends.

Signed your Shaw Hens

Conversation Starters


During this time with many of us home and in close quarters, it is easy to forget how to communicate effectively. Here are some simple conversation starters to open the lines of communication.


I hope everyone is doing well. If you have concerns that I may be able to help with please let me know.


Here is a video of Petra, a therapy dog from Gabriel’s Angels that visits our campus each week!

All to ensure every student has the tools they need to reach their full potential.
