Congratulations Graduates!
by Ann Clark, Head of School

Dear Parents,

 As the school year comes to an end, I would like to thank you for your belief in Montessori education as well as your endless flexibility during this unprecedented time. This was a tremendous support to our dedicated teachers and resilient students during our distance learning program. 

I wish our eighth grade graduates all the best as they begin their journey to new places. Eighth grade graduation is a time for celebration and reflection on the impact Montessori education has made on each student. After the graduation parade yesterday, the 8th grade families gathered in their individual cars and enjoyed the Graduation Video drive-in-movie-style! It is available to view all week!

VMS Summer Program will begin on Monday 6/15. Those registered will receive a separate communication with class assignments and logistics.

We will be busy this summer preparing for the 2020-2021 school year. Please make note of the Important Dates at the end of this newsletter. We will continue our weekly Wednesday News throughout the summer. Please make a point to read it to keep up to date on all the latest developments around school opening in August, as local guidelines frequently change.

I wish you all a very happy, safe and enjoyable summer!

Respectfully,
Ann

Attention Parents of Rising 6th Graders
Since Montessori Compass is not used in Middle School, we will be archiving all photos for these students on July 1. Please be sure to download (or screen shot) any pictures you would like by this date as they will not be accessible after July 1.
Last Call for Class Memory Books
We will begin ordering the class memory books on Monday, 6/15. They are a wonderful momento of your child's school year. Place your order HERE . We will let you know when they arrive this summer.
Distance Learning Survey for Returning Families
A short survey was sent last Sunday to all returning families to get feedback on their distance learning experience and provide a platform for questions. This will be valuable information as we plan for the 2020-2021 school year. The survey will be open until this Friday, 6/12 at 5pm. Thank you in advance for your participation.
