“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” 
-Dr. Maria Montessori


Hellen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

We need each other during challenging times. Distance learning is not easy on the teacher, the child or the parent/guardian. 
It will take a lot of teamwork to make sure our students are getting what they need. While teachers are providing the lessons 
and the work, there is a lot of guidance needed from the parents/guardians to make sure students are completing assignments 
and practicing these lessons. I appreciate all your support.

In our classroom communities, we provide the right setting, materials and curriculum to foster peace and embrace differences. 
While this may look a little different remotely, by promoting inclusion and collaboration, we encourage each other to be 
open-minded and appreciative of different ideas. At Sterling Montessori, we embrace and celebrate the diversity of our world. 
Our differences form and inform a rich environment that is a crucial part of educating our children on their path to maturity 
and global citizenship. Our interactions across our entire community are characterized by guiding principles of respect, equity, 
justice, humanity, peace, and personal responsibility. During this first week of school, teachers have taken the time to get to 
know the students, talk about grace and courtesy, and establish community norms or agreements rooted in community values, 
beliefs and interests. Establishing these norms creates a relationship between the individual and the classroom community.

Thank you for your patience, your kindness and teamwork as we navigate distance learning together!!

This week, in the face of unfamiliar and new procedures, our students, staff and families have risen to the challenges of our time to begin this new year with success in mind.  This is why every single one of you is a true GEM!  To continue to provide our programs and enhance our environments (both virtually and on campus), please consider a donation to our Annual Fund Treasure Chest.  All donations are greatly appreciated!

Speaking of enhancing our environment, Todd has been instrumental in all improvements to our school, including painting, new furniture, landscaping, plumbing, electrical - you name it!  Todd can’t wait to welcome students in carpool once we are open.  Meanwhile, he’ll keep wearing his Superman mask!
