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.
