Montessori for a Peaceful Community - Tuesday, January 15, 6-7:30

Join Montessori expert Debbie Sheehan for a discussion of Grace and Courtesy and how Montessori ideals and practices can shape our families, our communities and the world!  Debra Sheehan is Director of the Montessori Center for Teacher Education (MCTE) located in San Diego, California and Assistant Director of Maria Montessori School, also located in San Diego. Debra teaches in all course levels as well as being the Practicum Supervisor for all adult learners. She holds Montessori credentials for Early Childhood, Elementary I – II, and Secondary I and is fully qualified to teach children between the ages of 2.5-15 years old as well as adults in teacher education programs for these age ranges. Debra has presented workshops at National AMS conferences, international lectures on Montessori methodology, and has been a MACTE on-site verifier for several Montessori teacher education programs.


Please note that mid-year student conferences will not be held this year since a new teacher will be taking over the classroom.  Instead, written feedback will be provided on the progress of your student. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Sharon Martin.

Intent to Return & Sibling Enrollment

It’s lottery season and we need to know your plans for the next school year.  Thursday morning you received an important “Intent to Return” email with links. Please read it thoroughly and complete the Intent to Return by January 18.  In order to qualify for sibling preference, you must complete the online enrollment application for any incoming sibling by January 31 (we encourage you to complete this as soon as possible).  Contact Jen Hackstadt if you did not receive the “Intent to Return” email.
