October 2018 Newsletter

 September was a busy month! We hope you took advantage of Open House month and visited your child’s classroom. Studies have shown that parent involvement in a student’s educational program is a key factor to academic success. Feel free to visit anytime.

Montessori and My Student

Children possess a remarkable ability to absorb the world that surrounds them. Maria Montessori believed that the years from three to six are the most critical period for nurturing a child's natural curiosity and for laying the foundation for all future development. The main purpose of a Montessori school is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help the child develop an excellent foundation for future learning. The specific goals for the students who attend a Montessori school are to develop within each student a positive attitude toward school, help develop self-confidence, assist in building a habit of concentration, foster an abiding curiosity, develop habits of initiative and persistence, and foster inner security and a sense of order. For the older student, this framework is used to maintain academic competency.

LMS on Facebook

Livingston Montessori School has a Facebook page. Be sure to “Like” our page and check it for information about activities going on at the school. This is also another method to contact the office by sending a Message. In addition, we have a closed Facebook group just for parents. Search for this group and request to join. This is an easy way to share pictures with parents of some of the activities going on at our school.

Fall Fundraiser

The Fall Fundraiser will end October 15th. We are raising money for classroom materials, so ask all your family and friends to help. Out of town orders can be done online – see instructions on the back of the sheet stapled to the brochure. Orders with payments need to be turned into the office by Monday, October 15th.

August 2018 Newsletter

back-to-school-2 News | Livingston Montessori School

Our new school year will begin August 20th. If you have not confirmed your child's fall enrollment, please do so. Our classes fill quickly and we want to accommodate everyone if possible. Fall registration fees are now due ($100/child).

REMINDER: Tuition is due each week in advance by Monday morning.

Why should my child continue with Montessori education?

In the Montessori environment, the student is presented with endless opportunities to develop academic skills with the aid of self-correcting materials in a prepared setting. Each succeeding year, the student can move into more challenging academic areas. In this supportive, exciting environment he or she develops concentration, self-discipline, a sense of order, and persistence in completing a task. As a result, creative self-expression and a love of learning develops. These empowering habits enable our students to excel in life.

Livingston Montessori School educates students from preschool all the way through 12th grade.

Transitions

As the beginning of a new school year approaches, some students may have transitions which can concern parents. These suggestions will ease the transition for your student:

Meet the Teacher -- If at all possible, meet the new teacher with your student. Children can become stressed when they don't know what to expect. Meeting the new teacher can help by answering some simple questions. You and your student could setup an appointment and meet the teacher at your convenience.

Preview the Class -- If your student is not familiar with his/her new class, our office staff would be happy to arrange several 'visits.'

Discuss Concerns -- Moving to a new environment may bring some concerns for your student. even enthusiastic children may have some questions. Talk with your student about what they can expect and what they will be doing. some friends will remain the same and some work will remain the same. This provides a sense of familiarity. Everyone involved wants your child to be successful.

Change is Good -- Change can be positive. Even with an incredible past experience, the next experience should be even more rewarding and fulfilling for your student.

Transition times tend to bring up issues that are not dealt with on an everyday basis. Use some of the techniques above to assist your student. Learning to handle new situations now will help your child deal with changes later in life. If you have any questions or concerns about your student's transition, please speak with a teacher or call the office.
