“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori
TWO WEEKS UNDER OUR BELT
Students, faculty and families have successfully completed the first two weeks of school. What a great accomplishment! We have all learned a lot and, through grace and courtesy, continue to collaborate on best practices and approaches. This coming week, look for communication on adjustments to classroom schedules.
ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT
We understand that virtual learning can be tough getting used to. Our teachers definitely want to maintain a connection with each and every Sterling student both in the mornings and during afternoon sessions. This is a gentle reminder that attendance is still very important to maintain that connection, so please encourage your students to meet on schedule. Thank you!
SPECIALS: FLEXIBLE OPPORTUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE
We would love to see what our Sterling Gems are doing at home during Virtual Learning! Do you have an awesome school setup? Is your student starting work on a masterpiece or interesting project? Calling all families to send us your photos and share the fun while students are interacting with teachers and friends virtually. Pictures can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll continue to enjoy photo submissions through Plan C. Please note that these pictures may be used on social media or in communications to Sterling Families.
While our K-8th grade students are under Plan C and working virtually, we do have spots currently available in our Academy (Pk3/Pk4) classes. And now, we are WAIVING THE APPLICATION FEE and offering a REFERRAL INCENTIVE or any Sterling family or staff member who refers a family who enrolls their child to the Academy: $100/per student referral!
Be sure to check out our CHILDREN’S HOUSE VIRTUAL TOUR now available on Sterling’s website!
