Weekly Announcements - Friday, September 11, 2015

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!  We hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful summer.  Now we are excited to be back to school!



We hope that you can join us on Saturday, September 19, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.  The event is a great opportunity for the WFM community to get together and a wonderful kick off to the school year (even though it will be a delayed “kick off”).


As we begin the year, we have a number of announcements and reminders for you.  After you read through them, please continue scrolling down to see photos from the first week of school!


We invite you to join us for our Curriculum Nights, coming up next week. Learn about what Waterfront Montessori offers your child, talk to your child’s teachers and spend time in the classrooms.  These events are for adults only and no childcare will be available. We appreciate your cooperation. Upper Elementary and Middle School students may attend with their parents.

·       Elementary and Middle School - Wednesday, September 16, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.  Please click here to RSVP

·       Toddler, Primary and Kindergarten  - Thursday, September 17, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.  Please click here to RSVP


Information about AfterSchool offerings and schedules will be distributed soon. Please stay tuned!


Every Friday students bring home school communications and other documents in their Friday Folders.  Please review the information in your child’s folder each week and then return the empty folder to school on Mondays.  


On Thursday, packages went home with each child.  The packages contained important school documents, including copies of your child’s application, emergency contacts, emergency medical information and more. If you have not already done so, please review your child’s documents, make any necessary corrections and return to school.  

If all information is correct, please sign each page and return them to school. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our database accurate.


Parents of Elementary and Middle School students:  If EL/MS students arrive late, after 8:30 a.m., they must be signed in by an adult at the second floor reception desk. 


Please make sure that all clothing you send to school is labeled with your child’s name.  Many students have similar clothing items and mix-ups do happen.  The school will not undertake to either identify or recover lost clothing that is not clearly marked with a child’s name and cannot be responsible for unmarked clothing that does not make it back home.  We appreciate your cooperation.


We are privileged to be on this educational journey with your family, and we are glad to have you as part of our WFM community.  We hope that you will visit The Flow often and share what is happening at Waterfront Montessori!

Chris Viteznik, Communications Director
