Broadcast Calls


Carnival-Cancelled

posted May 18, 2018, 12:54 PM by The Webmaster

Good afternoon Montessori Families,

We are very sorry to announce that due to the expected rainfall all night and into tomorrow, and possible thunderstorms, the PTO will be cancelling the Carnival planned for Saturday, May 19th.

We know everyone is disappointed, however, the companies that provide the inflatables, the tents and games for the Carnival will not provide service on wet grounds or in the rain.

There is no rain date planned.

While certainly not a substitute for a fun carnival day, the PTO has decided to provide a Make-Your-Own-Sundae celebration during Field Week.  

For anyone that bought pre-sale wristbands, we will write VOID on your check, or if you paid cash, your refund will be available for pick up at the administrative offices.

Thank you, and have a nice weekend!

MRCS Families - 2018

posted Jan 2, 2018, 2:09 PM by The Webmaster

Good afternoon Montessori Families,

We are looking forward to seeing all of our students at school TomorrowWednesday, Juanuary 3, 2018  AT THE REGULAR TIMES.

As we return to school during this very cold and snowy weather please take the following precautions.

First, be sure that your child dresses in layers.  They should have boots, hats, gloves and snowpants as well as a sweater or sweatshirt for the classrooms.

Second, please be prepared for a slow commute.  We will keep the carpool lines open for all cars tthat are in line in the morning.  Please allow for plenty of times as side roads are still in poor condition.

If your child is a bus rider please be aware that buses will be running approximately 10-15 minutes late in the morning.  Please be patient and if  possible, escort your child to their bus stop as sidewalks may not be clear in your area.  

We are delighted to have our students back to school and we are looking forward to a wonderful 2018!

Happy New Year!

School Calendar Change

posted Nov 10, 2017, 10:07 AM by The Webmaster

Good Afternoon Montessori Families:

We are calling today with an important message about the school calendar.

As you all know, last Sunday evening a tornado touched down on our property causing damage to the exterior and shutting down our utilities for several days making it necessary to call off school.  

The good news is that there was no interior damage and we are back up and fully operational. Unfortunately,  with our current school calendar, as we enter the winter season, we have already used our existing snow days for the year.  This means if we have to use another snow day we will have to extend our school year into the third week of June. In discussions with our families and our staff this week, we think there is a better option.

Please mark your calendar as follows:  There WILL BE SCHOOL on Wednesday, November 22nd - the day before Thanksgiving.  THIS WILL BE A EARLY DISMISSAL DAY

Students at South Campus will be dismissed at 1:00 pm and students at North campus will be dismissed at 12:45 pm  All buses will be running on the early dismissal schedule which will be published on our website next week.

In addition, WE WILL HAVE SCHOOL on Friday, February 16th on an early dismissal schedule. 
If we have to use an additional snow day, we will use the days designated on the current calendar.

Finally, we want to express our gratitude to all those families who sent encouraging emails and calls and offered to help during the aftermath of the tornado.  We are so grateful to our Montessori community for their unwavering dedication and support of our school.

Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing all the students return on Monday.
