Dear parents,

As you know, next week 4/6 - 4/10 is our scheduled Spring Break. This is an opportunity for our staff to recharge in preparation for our return to Distance Learning on 4/13. Although we will step away from our Zoom calls and daily check ins, we will continue to update the VMS Website to provide ideas, activities and resources to help as needed during the break - including virtual field trips, audibooks, singalongs and more!

Looking Ahead
Here are a few things in the works for when we return on the 13th:

  • Grandparents Days: These were originally scheduled for May 7 & 8. We look forward to this special time each year to bring the generations together on the VMS campus. Since we will not be able to host our grandparents and grandfriends in our standard format, we are working on a modified way to celebrate them. We are compiling a slideshow of memories. If your child would like to share a favorite photo to add to our collection, please send it to grandparents@valleymontessorischool.com.

  • Art Show: Our VMS art teacher Jill is curating a visual art collection to showcase online. If your elementary or Middle School students are especially proud of a piece they have created at home during our remote learning, please send a photo of it to art@valleymontessorischool.com.

  • Ukulele Sign Out: Jack has created some Ukulele play-along videos as part of his music page. After the break, students will have an opportunity to borrow a Ukulele from VMS.

  • VMS YouTube Channel: We are expanding - Stayed tuned!

Thank you for the overwhelming support of our teachers and partnering with us on this unexpected journey. We appreciate you!

Respectfully,
Ann
