Director’s Parent Letter: Week Ending with September 12th

Dear Parents:

One of the great strengths of a Montessori classroom is its educational materials. The materials are designed to emphasize concrete learning through hands-on manipulation. They are self-correcting in that they encourage children to discover their own errors rather than be told that they are wrong. They provide discipline and independence and, above all, they help our children find for themselves an early and individualized love of learning.

Next week, we will be sending home Small Hands, a catalog of Montessori educational materials. If you are interested in purchasing any items, please send your order form back to the school by October 1st, and we will be happy to place a group order for you. Woods Creek Montessori will receive 10-15% of the order total which will be used to purchase educational materials for our classrooms.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow at Applebee’s for Saturday morning breakfast between 8 and 10 am.

Important Dates:

  • September 13: Applebee’s Breakfast Fundraiser
  • September 15: W&L Faculty Meeting – care will be provided at Montessori until 6:30 pm for W&L employees. A RATS van will transport Waddell students to WCM for W&L faculty and staff who sign up with Anne Remington, W&L Work Life Coordinator.
  • September 16: Board of Director’s meeting 8 pm
  • September 27: Tentative Date for Fall Harvest Hike

Please do not hesitate to call me any time at school or on my cell phone (540) 416-3693 if you have any questions or concerns.

Many thanks for your support,

Caroline Russell
Interim Director, Woods Creek Montessori
