Tuesday, September 2nd is the first day of classroom instruction for the 2014-2015 school year.
First Day of School Morning Tea
The Community Events Committee will be hosting a Welcome Tea during morning drop off on the first day of school. All parents are invited to join us in the garden to meet new families, catch up on summer happenings, and just enjoy a cup of tea and a treat to ease the pang of the end of summer and celebrate the start of a wonderful new year of learning for our children.
For a full schedule of instructional days and other important dates, please see our School Calendar page.
Our broadest vision is of a world that lives in peace, and a world community based on interdependence and respect for all life and all people. Our vision for our school is a Montessori school community of supportive parents, dedicated teachers and staff, and joyful learners.
Our mission is to nurture students’ character, compassion, respect and curiosity; to cultivate their means to learn, to invent, and participate fully and joyfully in life independently and collaboratively; to sustain a quality Montessori holistic classroom environment within a farm-based learning community; to encourage a deep sense of interdependence and responsibility as caring, global citizens and stewards of the earth.
The SRM Staff
Had their first workday this week.
Debora, Alicia, Michele, and Bridget (left to right) all came together this week to plan for this year and for future years and we are feeling energized and excited for this school year.
Bridget and Michele just returned from observing at a Montessori Charter School in Petaluma. It was a valuable experience and they returned with some interesting ideas and also a great appreciation for the beauty and strength of our program.
Work on the site continues this week and will carry into next week. This is going a bit past the originally scheduled date, but Pacific Builders has been so awesome and it will certainly be worth the wait!
The flooring went in this week. The carpet and linoleum look fantastic! The exterior was painted today…pictures of that next week!
We are now a federally recognized 501 c3 non-profit organization! This means we are exempt from most federal and state taxes and can receive tax-deductible donations.
SRM would like to recognize Autumn Feral and Aaron Weiss for their ongoing attention to the non-profit application process. It was a path covered with bureaucratic hoops and both Autumn and Aaron graciously and intelligently maneuvered our organization through them. Excellent work!
