With the warm weather it is hard to believe we are already in October, and yet, we are seeing the classroom communities start to come together as a cohesive group, which signals that the school year is well underway.
We have already had several successful fundraising events at FVMS. Thank you to everyone who participated in the back to school picnic sale as well as the Chuck E. Cheese and Panera Dine Outs. We have the For Small Hands available now and the Fall Resale, Spirit Wear, SCRIP gift cards and the Colonial Cafe dine out all coming up in October.
Thank you to everyone who came to our Progressive Lesson in September. We had a presentation from each classroom teacher to delve deeply into the activity and purpose of Math lessons at each level. We had some great questions and dialogue. We look forward to seeing our Primary and Lower Elementary at the Bring Your Parents to School Night. I can’t say enough about the importance of this kind of experience for parents. Your children are deeply immersed in our Montessori classroom environments and these events offer a real peek into what their days are like.
I often refer to the relationship between teachers and parents as a partnership. Next to parents, teachers are often the people who spend the most time with your child and often build very close relationships in a three-year classroom. Building a relationship of openness and trust between parents and teachers is so important to us at FVMS. All of the classroom teachers place importance in your observations and opinions about your child and their experience here at school. All of our teachers respond to emails and are always willing to set up face to face meetings to talk with you.
As the weather cools off, we will still be going outside every possible day. Please make sure that your child has weather appropriate gear, labeled with their name, so that they may comfortably enjoy the outdoor time.
All of us at FVMS appreciate you trusting us with your children. Know that we love them and enjoy every minute we have with them as they grow up.
