A Moment In Time

March 18th, 2020
We are all sitting on the edge of our seats, wondering what will happen next during these uncertain times.  When will my child go back to school?  Will this get extended?  How will I work from home with my child in the house with me?  How do I explain this to my child in a way they can understand? What will we hear in the news next?

Our teachers will continue to partner with our parents in any way we can.  This is how we work all year long and at this time, we want our families to understand that we are truly a partner with you in your child’s education.  Now, we are just doing it from a distance.  Every single teacher at FVMS, would prefer to be meeting with your children face to face.  We miss those giggles, the funny stories, and the aha moments.  We can’t be in the same room but we can reply to emails and offer guidance.  

We want this to be a time to remember for as many positive reasons as possible, a chance to slow down and spend time together. Now is a forced opportunity to play games, read books, and take long walks.  We look forward to returning to school and hearing about all the fun the students had while home with families.

We are sharing a few links that we like and have shared with our families. We encourage you to set up a schedule that allows them to transition back to the school schedule easily. Tag us on Instagram and Facebook with the activities you are enjoying with your children!  Share with our community and inspire each other.

Visiting a Montessori Classroom

Our favorite comment to hear during tours as families observe classrooms is “I didn’t know they could do that by themselves!” Montessori classrooms are unique: beautiful, hands-on, and intentionally designed to encourage child-directed engagement with support from teachers.

What is Montessori? I hear that kids choose their own work, what does that look like? Isn't it dangerous to allow them to walk alone in the hallways? How will my Kindergartner be able to learn if he is in the same room as a three year old? Do they have to be potty trained to be in preschool?
