Parent Observations Begin October 5!
In preparation for Parent/Teacher Conferences (October 29 & November 5), parents of 4-6-year-old Primary students and all Elementary students are invited to observe their children's classroom in action! Online Sign-Up will begin later this week, and Observations will begin October 5 and continue on designated days through October 28. Two observation sessions (8:45-9:30 and 9:00-9:45) will be available for each class on each designated observation day. Parents will gather in the Pavilion for a brief introduction, followed by time to observe in their child’s classroom. Each session will conclude with an opportunity to debrief observations in a small group facilitated by Associate Head for Curriculum & Learning Cara Friedline and/or Head of School Megan Hakerem. Look for more information soon!
Because Toddler and younger Primary students are less able to maintain concentration with parents present and may feel distressed when parents depart, parents of Toddler and 3-year-old Primary students will be invited to join Associate Head for Curriculum & Learning Cara Friedline for Zoom observations. Look for your invitation to observe via Zoom soon!
Observations prior to Parent/Teacher Conferences allow parents a glimpse of their child's day as well as an overall picture of how a Montessori classroom allows children opportunities for creativity, engaged learning, authentic social interactions, time for exploration, and more. We hope to see you in our observation chairs and in our Zoom observations!
