Weekly Announcements – Friday, January 22, 2016

CANCELLED:  Bring Your Parents to School Day is cancelled for Saturday, January 23, due to the expected snowstorm.

RESCHEDULED:  The event is rescheduled for Saturday, January 30, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  We hope that you can join us then.  We will retain your family’s RSVP unless you contact us to cancel.  If you were unable to attend on January 23 but can now attend on January 30, please click here to RSVP.  We look forward to seeing you there!

We hope you remain safe and warm this weekend!


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.


In case of possible school closings or delayed openings due to snowstorms, ice storms or other bad weather, Waterfront Montessori will provide notification via media outlets WNBC TV and WCBS TV / 1010 WINS AM radio and their web sites, through FiOS 1 News, through emails to addresses provided to us by families, and by posting information on The Flow, our online newsletter.

Notifications will be listed by our school name:  Waterfront Montessori

Please note that we are not tied to Jersey City Public School district decisions regarding school closures and will make our own notifications.


As the temperature drops, please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather in a warm coat, a hat and gloves.  Our playground and PE areas are right on the water and can be colder and windier than other parts of Jersey City.

This is also a good time to check the extra clothing that your child keeps at school.  Please make sure he or she has the correct size of clothing, including long pants, a long sleeved shirt, socks and underwear, stored at school.

If your child has had to change clothes at school and has borrowed clothing from WFM or from a classmate, please remember to launder and return the borrowed clothing to school as soon as possible.  There is a charge for clothing that is not returned.  We appreciate your cooperation!


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

Chris Viteznik, Communications Director
