Share Springmont is an annual campaign asking our current families to help us spread the word about the extraordinary student experience offered at Springmont! We look forward to sharing the many ways parents can help us attract new families who might be a good fit for our school community.
For starters, we will be hosting two Open Houses in January! If you know a family who might be interested in learning more about Springmont, make sure to let them know!
There is one more day to the Springmont Fund campaign! Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday and a chance to close out this annual effort with a bang! Remember, each class that reaches 80% parent participation will be treated to a special celebration! Click here to make your gift or pledge.
Congratulations to front cover winners Guillaume Devillard and Andrew Johnson for their interpretation of the assigned theme, Stewardship of the Environment, pictured on the left side of this image. Congratulations to Juliet Martin as well; she created the art (pictured on the right side of this image) that will grace the back cover. There were numerous amazing works of art submitted this year, and after the Administration narrowed them down, the Yearbook Club chose the winning entries for front and back cover representation. Some of the honorable mention works will be featured on an inside page of the 2022-23 Yearbook. Thank you to all who submitted an entry!
The Springmont Parent Association (SPA) would like to thank the families who collectively donated over $2,500, helping to make Springmont’s Thanksgiving Outreach with Sandy Springs Solidarity a wonderful success! Eighteen Springmont volunteers, children and adults, stuffed 250 bags to feed food-insecure families! Springmont students decided (on the spot) to write and draw thanksgiving notes to put in each bag for a personal Springmont touch!
If you would like to continue to support Solidarity Sandy Springs (SSS), they are hosting an Adopt a Family program to bring joy to financially insecure families during the holiday season. Click here for more info from SSS.
We hope parents will join us this Friday for our December SPA meeting. We know everyone is busy, so we will meet by Zoom at 8:45 a.m. Topics will include the upcoming Faculty/Staff Appreciation Luncheon and other upcoming events and activities. Please click the link shared in Springmont Weekly News at 8:45 a.m. on Friday, December 2
Around the world, people of all cultures have an annual celebration of gratitude, many of which were originally linked to a bountiful autumn harvest. In America, we have come to learn that the Thanksgiving story many of us learned in school was not historically accurate. At Springmont, we approach Thanksgiving as a time of gratitude, service, and appreciation. We are grateful for the many gifts bestowed upon our community that allow us to serve children each day and further Dr. Montessori’s legacy. We are partnering with Solidarity Sandy Springs to help support underserved families in our surrounding community by providing food to stock Thanksgiving Bags. We take time to acknowledge and appreciate Native American culture in developmentally appropriate ways in our classrooms.
On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to extend our deep appreciation to our families for sharing your children with us each day and for the many ways you support our mission to provide a Montessori learning environment. Whether you share feedback with us, volunteer time in your child’s classroom, help to plan a community event, participate in school events, or contribute to the Springmont Fund, every family makes a difference in our community, and for that, we are extraordinarily thankful.
Wishing you a safe and peaceful break next week,
