WRM Flood Relief

Thank you for all of your generous donations to the WRM Flood Relief Supply Drive last week! The response was overwhelming and inspiring. We filled our shed with tons of diapers, wipes, formula, new socks and underwear, toiletries, at least a half a dozen Pack 'n Plays and much, much more!

On Friday afternoon the middle schoolers loaded up a WRM van full of donated goods and on Saturday the items were delivered to Trusted World in North Dallas, so that they could be distributed to Dallas area shelters. Last night we got some good news - thanks to your generosity and that of many eager helpers throughout Dallas, we received word that Dallas area shelters are now fully stocked with supplies and no longer in need of donated goods at this time. Thank you so much for your help!

While Dallas area shelters are currently stocked, the great need in South Texas for supplies and financial support continues. WRM is working with Houston area schools to identify needs and provide support. There are currently requests for Care Kits for young children, school age children, and adults. Next week WRM will start a new drive to collect Care Kits to send down to Houston families. This is a great way to engage children of all ages in the act of giving. Your child may really enjoy putting together a Care Kit for a child their age in Houston, and they will hopefully feel empowered by being a he lper.

Please see information on the Care Kits below. 
Items go in a gallon-sized plastic bag with label:  4-year old, 4-year old girl/boy,school-age child, or adult.

School Directory
ready to be accessed!

Each year, White Rock Montessori issues a School Directory to our currently enrolled families. 

The purpose of this directory is to facilitate communication between families for individual activities. Using the directory for mass emails, business promotion, or communication of non-sanctioned school events is prohibited.

WRM's directory is digitally stored and accessed through the school's redesigned and easy to use registration site at https://register.whiterockmontessori.org/currently-enrolled-students.html. You will need to be logged in to access the directory information.

Sibling/Family Photos will be available again this year as well!
