2018 Has Come in with a Roar!
Happy 2018 Everyone! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season. Just when we were set to get into the New Year swing of things this week, Mother Nature threw us a curve ball! Looking forward to getting back to work in earnest on Monday, but did want to send out this VERY brief newsletter today.
On January 2nd, MFCS staff traveled to River Valley, a public Montessori school in Massachusetts, for a regional conference on our Professional Development Day organized around building and sustaining our public Montessori school communities. Laura and Meryl work closely with the River Valley leadership to put together the event, which featured both a keynote speaker from the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS), as well as a series of round-table discussions led by staff from Mill Falls and River Valley. It was an inspiring gathering and provided a great opportunity for staff from 4 public Montessori schools in the region to share ideas and resources.
