Nuts & Bolts
November 5, 2018
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend with loved ones doing what you love. I was able to get away this weekend, which is why this week's N&B are coming out later than usual. Thank you all for your presence at Troy and Molly's services. I know it was late notice and I know the family appreciated our attendance.
Let's have a "normal" week before the holidays are upon us,
Professional Learning and Staff Meeting Today
We will not have a staff meeting today and, instead, extend our professional learning time by 15 minutes to be able to take the Staff Climate Survey. Thanks!
As you know from his email, James is no longer employed with MMA. We appreciate his contribution to the school and wish him the best moving forward.
We need to inform you of changes with the preschool program. Going forward, Children’s Garden Montessori will no longer be involved in MMA’s preschool program. In order to provide children with the highest level of education and consistency, MMA will now be handling administrative matters, including the collection of tuition.
For your reference, this letter was sent to preschool parents last week. If you run into individuals who have questions, please refer them directly to me.
Sick & Injured Student Reminders
As a reminder, if a you send a child to the office for an injury, you must submit an injury report and contact the students' parent/guardian before the end of the day.
