Operating as usual

This morning was a bit chilly. Walking around barefoot seemed a bit silly... so we put on fuzzy, crazy socks on our little feet. Here are our students and staff so sweet! We hope you enjoy the pictures from our Rock Your Socks Day!

World Peace Day

Today, The Montessori School at StarCreek joins with people worldwide to celebrate the International Day of Peace on September 21st. Montessori education, at its core, incorporates peace education across all areas of the curriculum. From the very beginning of her research and educational practice, Dr. Montessori sought ways to educate the ‘whole child’. Every aspect of Montessori’s work was geared toward helping children in order to help the world because she believed that children were the ‘promise of the future.’ Most of us would agree with that sentiment today, and thankfully, we have Dr. Montessori’s guidance and time honored traditions to know how we can work best with children to facilitate a more peaceful world.

May we all work together to create a world where everyone everywhere is able to enjoy and exercise their ‘right to peace’. And may we all help our children learn how to carry on this important mission. Wishing you all a happy Peace Day!

Dance Video

Yesterday, our toddler and primary students celebrated National Dance Day. National Dance Day is a day of celebrating dance, in all its forms and aims to encourage participation in dance. Dance connects the mind and body, promotes health and wellbeing, connects us with others and enables us to find joy through dance and movement. We hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed the dance party!

Our Elementary classes had a fun morning! They had a virtual field trip to Longwood Gardens. It consists of over 1,077 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, United States in the Brandywine Creek Valley. We learned and identified characteristics of the desert climate and how plants have adapted to survive. What a neat way to explore new plant life!

Although we can't change what is going on around us, we want to show the world that our smiles shine brighter than ever here at TMS! Click here to see more smiles! https://vimeo.com/454527608

[04/01/20]   Dear TMS Families,

During a press conference yesterday afternoon, Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, extended the closure of schools through Friday, May 1, 2020. At this time, The Montessori School at StarCreek is scheduled to reopen on Monday, May 4. We will continue to reassess the situation in our community and will seek additional guidance from our local, state and federal agencies, including Collin County Health Services, Texas Health and as well as the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Our staff and students’ safety is our number one priority.

We will continue to communicate with our families via our page and emails. Thank you for your patience and partnership as we work together to deliver a successful learning experience for our students under these unprecedented circumstances. We hope you will take this time to care for yourself, your family and those around you, and continue to adhere to the preventative measures as recommended by public health officials, such as limiting interaction and practicing social distancing. Our campus and school office will remain closed to the public.

Our teachers will continue to provide alternative, at-home learning options for our students through Distance Learning. For our infant, toddler and primary students, we have created groups for Distance Learning which will continue with Montessori lessons, circle times, get active ideas and additional cultural lessons for the afternoon. For our Elementary students, we have a school day of lessons, get active ideas and STEAM classes as well as the live sessions with classroom teachers. We have been impressed with the creativity and energy our staff have shown in preparing at-home lessons. Thank you parents for creating space and time for your children to continue their education at home.

Currently all infant, toddler and primary families have a hold placed on tuition in the FACTS tuition management system until the school opens. Elementary students will continue online learning and will continue making payments in the FACTS tuition management system.

Please know our vision of Montessori has not changed. Our world has. These are uncertain and scary times indeed. We are all struggling to adapt to this new reality, one we did not ask nor plan for. Because Montessori is about serving life and serving the child. It’s not about classrooms and schools, even though that's where we tend to practice it. We are just starting where we are, with the children in the environments they are in, with us in the environments we are in, and we observe, with all the knowledge and wisdom Dr. Montessori left us, to assess what the children in our TMS community need right now. The true purpose of our work is to be an aid to life. To help the child adapt to their place and time so they can find their place within it. Life today is not what life was just a few short weeks ago. Which means to aid life, we have to adapt. We're are just having to be creative, and think differently about our work.

We want to thank you for your patience and for putting your trust in us. We’re committed to working through these challenging circumstances with you together. We hope that you and your family are doing well, staying healthy, and finding creative ways to make the best of this quarantine situation. Please let us know if you have further questions.

Warm regards,

Monica Cook
Head of School
