Welcome back! We hope that February Break was full of fun, family and friends. Mother Nature delayed our reunion on Monday following the storm, but when we did finally assemble, we were so happy to see everyone.
Our Staff has been hard at work this week finalizing the Winter Progress Reports,which will be sent out by email today. Please be sure to take some time over the next days to review your child’s report. As we have noted previously, the MFCS Progress Reports for our Upper and Lower Elementary Students are based on the three-year Montessori cycle. So as you view your child’s progression since the Fall Report, you will also see the progress being made within the 3-year cycle of your child’s Program Level. Since our Kinder is a single-year program, their reports are designed to only reflect their Kinder year.
For those of you who have signed up for a Parent / Teacher Conference next Thursday, please bring the reports with you. All MFCS Parents/Guardians are reminded to direct any questions or wonderings about your child’s progress to your child’s Lead Teacher.

Tomorrow marks Mill Falls’ 8th anniversary of our original Charter School Approval! On March 9th, 2011, the group of founders went before the NH Department of Education for final approval of our charter – a 5-year contractual agreement with the state of NH. This allowed us to officially establish our school, NH’s First public Montessori. Since then, we have been re-approved by that same governing body to continue our program. It has been a long road, and today we stand together as a strong, proud and growing community, committed to our mission and embraced by friends and family, near and far. Thank you to everyone who has played a part in helping us reach this important milestone.
