Weekly Announcements - Friday, January 15, 2016

After the Friday, January 15, school closure for the Faculty Planning Day, the school will remain closed on Monday, January 18, in observance of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day federal holiday.  We hope that you enjoy the long weekend!


AfterSchool classes are scheduled to begin next week and the following week (depending upon the class day).  To secure a spot for your child in a class, please check the recent email to download the registration forms or ask for a paper form at school and submit the registration form with payment as soon as possible.  Please note that spaces in the classes are first come, first served. 


We invite you join us for the next K/A Coffee on Thursday, January 21, from 8:15 to 9:15 a.m., in the first floor Lower Campus Multipurpose Room.  Every other week, Karen Westman, our Head of School, hosts drop-in coffees for WFM parents.  No RSVP is required and the coffees are open to all WFM parents.  Please stop by the first floor Lower Campus Multipurpose Room on Thursday, January 21, to stay current on what is happening at WFM.  We look forward to seeing you there!

If you have friends or colleagues who are interested in having their children attend Waterfront Montessori, please invite them to apply for next year!  Next Tuesday, January 19, is the deadline for applications for the 2016-2017 academic year.


Please Mark Your Calendars:  Bring Your Parents to School Day is coming up!  The 10th Annual Waterfront Montessori Bring Your Parents to School Day will be held on Saturday, January 23, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Upper and Lower Campuses.  On Bring Your Parents to School Day, our students will be your teachers!  Join your child in his or her own classroom for an hour or so to get a snapshot of your child’s school day.  The event is open for three hours, so you may come at a time that works for your family. Please watch your email box for more details and to RSVP for yourself and your child.  


Re-enrollments for all students for the 2016/2017 school year are due on Monday, January 25.  If you intend for your child to continue at WFM next year, please submit the completed re-enrollment form, tuition contract and required deposit for each student by the deadline to secure a space at the school next year.  


If you are planning to have a younger sibling attend Waterfront Montessori next year, please submit an online application through http://www.waterfrontmontessori.com immediately so that we may reserve a space for your younger child.  Siblings of current students receive priority in admission as long as the older child continues to be registered at WFM.  In the ‘Other Information’ section, please indicate that you are submitting a sibling application.

As always, we are glad to have your family as part of our Waterfront Montessori community.

Chris Viteznik, Communications Director
