Parent Education Night
On October 10, from 6-8 CMS will host our second parent education night of the school year. It is a required event for all new families and everyone is encouraged to attend. You will be hearing not only from your classroom teachers on the Montessori curriculum and program, but from our Enrichment Instructors as well. An overview of the Music, Spanish, PE, Computer and Art programs will be presented. We hope to see everyone there and child care will be available. Please RSVP to Joseb@countrymontessori.org.
Please make sure that you check your parent portal on a regular basis to stay connected. An easy way to do this is through the RenWeb Home app for your smart phone. Just Download the RenWeb Home app and put in our district code CO-CA. Everything about your child at school will be at your fingertips. The teachers post lesson plans and units of study as well as documents on certain occasions. Every first Friday of the month with the exception of Parent/Teacher Conferences, your classroom teachers will be sending you a message via the Behavior tab which is located under Student. If you select School you will have access to School Directory, Web Forms and current school Announcements. Please become familiar with this system as it is the main avenue of communication.
Speech & Language Screenings
Therapies for Success will be offering Speech & Language screenings at CMS on Friday October 11th. If you would like to have your child’s speech and language skills assessed, please feel free to sign up for a screening.
These screenings are available for $50. A certified and licensed speech-language pathologist will assess your child using a standardized screening protocol. You will receive a brief summary of the results and suggested follow-up.
Please complete the Screening Authorization form (found in resource documents on RenWeb) if you would like your child screened. Completed forms can be returned to the office along with your check made payable to Jodie Schuller by Monday October 7th.
Please save the date for our Halloween Carnival on Saturday, October 26 from 3-5. It is a wonderful time to wear your favorite costume, play games, visit the Haunted house, socialize, eat great food and have family fun! Thank you to Dragana Petrovic for leading this annual fun event!
