Weekly Update: 10/2/18

Family conferences take place twice, yearly, to share student progress in our program. The staff sets aside 25-minute sessions for each student’s family.  This Friday, our Primary, Lower Elementary, Reef Gecko, and Early Secondary will hold conferences.  All classrooms will host conferences on the following Fridays (10/12,10/19). Follow this link to  select your conference time and date:

Committee Participation

We need parent volunteers to be active on our committees; our charter school relies on active support to operate successfully.  Contact the chairperson to volunteer your support in committee work!

Help Monitor Recess and Lunch

Our school is in need of volunteers during the school day, for lunch and recess, and we’re offering a service hour for each family who completes the registration process, too, in the hopes of getting more volunteers!

Directions are listed on our website: http://maysandsmontessori.com/resources/msms-families-portal/

Become a Substitute Teacher

Parents who have flexible schedules should consider becoming a substitute – our school and our greater island community need reliable support during staff absences.   Individuals interested in exploring this opportunity will need to speak with Ms. Pam in our office for more information on how to qualify: 305.293.1400, ext. 53429

pell-a-Thon Shape-a-Thon Wrap-up
Students received their results from the Spell-a-Thon and Shape-a-Thon on Monday and should be collecting sponsor donations at this time. All funds from the Spell-a-Thon and Shape-a-Thon are due to the school office this Friday so we can tally the top earners per class.  Donations received through the online Flipcause campaign are automatically tagged to the specific student.
