Dear Elementary Parents/Guardians,
I hope this letter finds you well. We are working diligently to prepare for the upcoming
school year. We are thrilled to have you as a part of our community, whose vision is to grow greatness in mind, body, and spirit.
Important information about the upcoming school year is included with this email:
The first day of school is Monday, August 9. It is critical that your child attend school starting on that first day to avoid missing essential orientation and community-building activities. Information regarding parent orientation meetings will be forthcoming.
For those of you who are new to Villa, a program director oversees each of the three developmental levels we serve:
If you have questions about a program (curriculum, discipline, etc.), please feel free to contact the appropriate director for help and/or support.
As you will see from the school calendar, there are three parent-teacher conferences scheduled throughout the year. These will be held either in-person or on Zoom. The first one is intended to be a goal-setting conference for you, your child, and your child’s teacher. For grades 7 and 8, these take place on the first two days of school. For grades 1 – 6, they take place in September. The second conference is scheduled for January for grades 1 through 8. That conference is for you, your child, and your teacher to share progress towards those goals. The third conference in May will be optional for grades 1 through 6, not grades 7 and 8. You will receive a written progress report at the second and third conferences.
We plan on offering enrichment classes after school this year. Once those plans are finalized, we will send the information to you. These classes will begin in September.
We also plan on offering an after-school “Sports of All Sorts” program for elementary students. Due to the heat, these will begin in October. Details will be emailed to you in September. Our PE teacher and sports director, Coach E.J. (PEcoach@villamontessori.com), will be coordinating this.
