New & Events from Holy Trinity Montessori
A Note from our Head of School
Thank you to all parents and caregivers who joined us for our annual Open House! Our friends always look forward to the opportunity to share their work with you and give you a glimpse of their daily life at school. Once again, we had 100% family participation. On behalf of all the teachers at HTM, we greatly appreciate your efforts to engage with your children when we are able to open our doors during regular school days. Your kids love to see your support and enthusiasm, and it's always exciting for us as educators to give them the chance to share their progress.
As a reminder, Parent-Teacher conferences are coming up this month. This is another fantastic opportunity for you to have some focused time with your child's teacher(s) to hear about his or her progress and development. If you're not sure about your conference time, please consult your teacher this week.
In other news, we are (always!) looking ahead with anticipation to the developments with our new property. Thank you for your encouragement and excitement with our recent news regarding the site plan redesign. We are so happy with the outcome and love the new "village" layout, which will serve our community so beautifully. To give you a brief update on our progress, we are currently awaiting some permits. We are excited to tell you that once we have those, site work is expected to begin (4 weeks or less!).
We will plan an official Groundbreaking Party at some point this spring once it warms up...we will announce that date in plenty of time for you to make plans to join in on the fun! In the meantime, we promise to keep you up-to-speed on all of the developments with the new property. We know you are as eager as we are to see the campus develop!
From our Teachers
We always love to hear from our Montessori specialists - our teachers! This month we asked them to share their favorite lessons to present, or their favorite classroom materials. As always, their answers are insightful and interesting.
We are so blessed to have such phenomenal teachers at Holy Trinity Montessori!
