There’s always a whirlwind of excitement in those upcoming weeks to September 5th. All of us here at MCH have been busy wrapping up our most successful season of Summer Camp ever and busily preparing for the 2017-18 school year.
With a nearly full Early Childhood Program and Infant/Toddler Program and a steady roster of elementary students, MCH is heading into its 31st year with renewed excitement and energy at an all-time high.
Soon we will be kicking off our second year of the Discover Me Program, the only Parent and Child Program with a Montessori focus on the Eastside. This amazing program led by our Infant/Toddler Program Director, Kim Berude, is a gentle start into a Montessori education and gives parents the tools and knowledge to create a Montessori-friendly environment at home.
Our Infant/Toddler Program continues to be going strong, with a few new assistants and the familiar faces our young MCH students love to see each and every day.
We would like to welcome and introduce our community to our new Early Childhood Curriculum/Program Coordinator, Jennifer Kim, who brings vast knowledge and exciting new ideas to create the customized education plan you love at MCH. I invite you to stop by the office and meet Jennifer at any time; she’d love to meet you and will working closely with your child’s teacher to ensure their personal path to success is challenging and rewarding.
In the elementary program, we have a new, reconfigured space in our Morado classroom. Together with all the teachers, the Elementary Program Director, Nicole Champoux and myself, we’ve created a quieter space for those students who want to dive into more focused work, and a larger space with exciting nooks and areas where students can read, be lead through science lessons and get one-on-one attention with our dedicated Learning Specialists, Ms. Angela and Lead Teacher, Mr. Robin.
Needless to say, there is a lot going on at MCH and I am so glad you are a part of it.
The fun is just beginning – coming up next Friday, September 15th we will be having our second annual school-wide Back to School BBQ from 6:00-8:00pm featuring a private concert by the Not-Its! We will be providing Hot Dogs (veggie and regular), drinks and chips so all you have to do is show up, eat and dance!
Thanks again for choosing MCH for your child’s education. We’re glad you’re here!
