Good communication with your child's teacher is an important element in your child's education. To this end, there are parent orientation sessions scheduled at the beginning of each academic year, parent education meetings held during the year, and parent-teacher conferences held throughout the year. You will receive a monthly newsletter to inform you of current activities at the school.
The administration and Board members will keep you informed in a timely manner about activities and school plans. Communication will include the following:
The newsletter is intended to inform you of current activities at the school and includes a summary of Board meetings. The monthly newsletter will be emailed to you at the beginning of each month.
Bulletin Boards in the School.
These bulletin boards will contain notices, agendas, schedules, and other important information. Please feel free to ask the staff to post any items you feel would be of interest to the parents and be sure to check the board frequently.
Parent Board Meeting.
This meeting will be held once a year to promote direct communication between Board members and parents. We encourage at least one parent from each family to attend.
This website provides the school calendar, policies, handbook, job opportunities, and information about school events. A list of links to other Montessori schools and resources is also included.
These meetings are held at the school on every second Wednesday of each month and are open to all parents. This is a good way to find out about the plans and workings of our Board.
The school will occasionally use email to communicate information or request volunteer services. The school's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parent Volunteer Hours are required at SRMS. The student gets more from the Montessori experience when the parents are involved in the school. The child sees that the parent deems the education important by being involved. Each family contributes 40 hours per child or 60 hours per multi-child family to the school. Being a non-profit, we seek to operate economically while maintaining a high academic standard. To do this, we need the help of every parent. It is also a good way for parents to learn more about the Montessori system of education.
