As 2012 comes to a close we naturally take time to reflect on the course of the year. We would like to thank our MSH families for participating in the Parent Satisfaction Survey. Your helpful responses have given us food for thought. We look forward to having the rest of our academic year to continually improve our program here at MSH.
We were happy to see that you feel our teachers have a strong relationship with your children. Teaching children brings so much joy to us each day. Your responses also indicate that you feel the classrooms are a rich learning environment filled with great materials for stimulating learning. Here in the office Tinsley, Yolanda and I were pleased to see that you find us welcoming and accessible. We want you to feel free to drop in, have a cup of coffee, and let us know how things are going.
According to you, we have some room to grow in a few areas. You would like to see better communication from teachers and more organization in the office. Consider yourselves heard! All teachers now have an easy to remember email address. Each staff member’s unique email address consists of their first firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to email them with questions or concerns. We know that mornings can be a hectic time and many families using extended care don’t have access to their son or daughter’s teacher in the evenings. Hopefully, this will offer families an easier way to communicate directly with a teacher.
In the office, we are streamlining procedures and trying to find ways to make information available without drowning you in a sea of messages. Some ways you can stay informed include logging on to www.montessorihuntsville.org and syncing your calendar with our google calendar or find out about upcoming events in the monthly newsletter and our school blog. Don’t forget to check out the video monitor in the lobby for upcoming events. We will continue to send evites when we need to get an accurate count of attendees for special events. We hope you will join the school’s facebook group, Montessori Huntsville. This is a closed group so it’s a safe way to share photos or connect with other MSH families.
As the holiday season swings into high gear remember that we at the Montessori School of Huntsville believe that being part of such a great school is a gift. We are so grateful we get to share this gift with you and your child all year long.
