When you choose a school for your child, you choose a community for your family. We are proud of Keystone Montessori’s close-knit community and view our parent body as one of our greatest assets. Montessori education works best when we can build connections between school, home, and the greater community. This makes Montessori truly a way of life. 

Families often ask how they can support their child’s classroom experiences at home and how they can be active members of the Keystone community. We know how busy you are, and your efforts to support the hard work of the children and their teachers never goes unnoticed.  We appreciate your faith in us and in the Montessori method.

One of the best things you can do to deepen your relationships within our community and further your understanding of the Montessori method is to join us at our community meetings and parent education events. This month we are hosting two events you do not want to miss! 

We are fortunate to welcome a special guest speaker for our Community Meeting on January 18th. Ishwar Pokharel, a very talented school principal from Lalitpur, Nepal, is being sponsored by the Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies (SIMS) to complete his primary training. He runs a government school of 500+ children ages 3 through 18.  He became convinced that he needed to transition his school to Montessori step-by-step in order to unleash the human potential of the children, many of whom live in poverty. His government was in agreement and has supported his efforts. We are thrilled to welcome him to our school to share his experience with our community.

Friday, January 28th and Saturday, January 29th is the Annual Keystone Montessori Journey. Join us to experience one classroom at every level through “the eyes of the child”. This event will allow you to see firsthand how your child learns every day. Each parent will observe and participate in a classroom from every environment, Toddler through Adolescent. This outstanding opportunity is beneficial in comprehending and foreseeing your child’s future in the Montessori way of learning. All attendees must be present at both the Friday and Saturday sessions. It is imperative to experience both days to embrace the true experience of the Montessori Journey.

Dr. Maria Montessori believed deeply in the partnership between the classroom Guide and parents. She encouraged Guides to develop a close relationship with families.  Parent education events and community meetings are a time to foster that relationship, get to know other parents, and visit your child’s classroom, but the most important reason to attend these events is that it will have a positive impact on your child by deepening your understanding of the Montessori philosophy. Thank you for being part of the Keystone family, and I look forward to seeing you at our events this month. We are all joined together in our task of education. There is no magic line between school and the family; this too shall be their home.

 

In Health and Peace,
