Welcome, New Families

Welcome

Dear new families,

We would like to welcome you and your children  to Maha Montessori school. We are so happy that your child  joined our wonderful school .

On behalf of the staff at Maha Montessori School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

  • Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

  • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

  • Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

  • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college

Signing In and Out

Every child needs to be signed in at the beginning of the day and signed out when he/she leaves the school. The iPad for the sign-in/sign-out can be found to the left of the front desk.

Saying Goodbye

Transitioning for a child can be difficult, especially if it is for the first time. We have found the least painful way to say “goodbye”, for parents and children alike, is to give a warm hug and assure your child that you will be back soon. Your good-bye should not exceed more than 1-3 minutes. The teachers will assist you by redirecting your child’s attention to an activity or classroom work.Important: Please avoid Double-Good-Bye; that is to return again for another  hug, kiss, or “Good Bye”, as this will effectively send a signal to your child that you are extremely worried for their well-being, which in turn will trigger the child’s anxiety and prevent him/her from enjoying his/her day with the other children. 

Water Bottles and Milk Bottles

Please, make sure to take your child’s water bottle and milk bottle home when he/she leaves the school; thoroughly clean and refill them, and bring them back on the next day  😉
