Montgomery County parents weigh educational options for school year

PLAN A, B, & C all in ONE!

With the recent announcement that public schools are unsure about how they will be conducting school in the Fall, and with many warning that lockdowns may happen again, parents are unsure about continuity in their children's educations.

Don't let their uncertainty run your life.

Here at ETHOS, we have a solution. Because of our partnership with online accredited schools we can offer you the best of both worlds.

1) A proven and fully accredited online K-12 school.

2) Daily class times with trained teachers and mentors.

3) Extra curricular classes in the arts, including orchestra, choir, and athletics.

4) À la carte options for homeschoolers.

5) Flexibility to "miss" school without missing classes due to illness or travel.

To learn more, contact Ethos today!

[email protected] If Montgomery County schools do not change their anticipated start dates for next school year students could be back in the classroom in just six weeks. While no one knows what the next school year will look like yet, parents are considering what options they have for their students.

When he awakes, the school students have left him a refreshing meal of oranges and lemons.

At Ethos we explore music and expand the imagination! Congratulations Kayson! What a great job!

[03/16/20]   Why let COVID-19 disrupt your entire life and especially your child's education?

Here at Ethos we are constantly looking for ways to improve education for our children and our communities. Recently, we began exploring online education for our students K-12 which would give them the flexibility of classroom instruction when convenient, but online accessibility for when life demands attention to other things.

We have found that solution! For additional information contact us at [email protected] and watch for further releases as we launch our new classroom optional learning initiative.

[03/13/20]   Hello Everyone!

We hope that this finds you well and enjoying your Spring Break. As you are all probably aware, our world is facing a threat from the COVID-19 coronavirus and we wanted to address our plans to deal with this issue here at Ethos. First of all, we want to be sensitive the health and needs of our students, teachers, and their families. Consequently, at Ethos, we are taking a multi-pronged approach to this issue.

1) We will continue school as planned for the Academy starting next week. We will also continue private lessons for the Conservatory on the following basis.

a) We are encouraging any student or teacher who is feeling ill for any reason, has had contact with a person who is ill, or who is displaying any symptoms of cold or flu to cancel/reschedule their lessons. During this time, we will be flexible, and we will not enforce our regular attendance policy that requires a doctor's note for sick cancellations. We will offer make-ups for all lessons missed due to health issues.

b) If you typically have lessons in one of the small studios upstairs (A-C), you may request to receive your lesson in a larger area where you can keep greater distances of personal space. We will make the main stage and classroom A available for private instruction if you feel that studios A-C are too restricted in space.

c) All students and teachers must wash their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds immediately before and immediately after each lesson.
All teachers will wipe down door handles, keyboards, and chairs with a disinfectant wipe between every lesson. Teachers should also use an air disinfectant before and after every lesson. Wipes and air disinfectant will be provided in every teaching space.

2) All group classes and recitals for the Conservatory will be postponed in the month of March. Once local authorities have a better handle on the virus and the outbreak, we will reschedule these events.

While we know that this coronavirus poses a small risk to our students and community, we want to be sensitive to the health and wellness of our students, families, and staff. If you have any questions or concerns about any of the information contained in this email, please reach out to Khoren Ouzounian at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you in the coming week and filling this world with wonderful music!

The Ethos Team

[02/21/20]   Among his friends, Beethoven was a notorious space-cadet. Once, while speaking to family friend Cacilie, she noticed him zoning out. When she demanded a reply to what she’d said, his answer was, “I was just occupied with such a lovely, deep thought, I couldn’t bear to be disturbed.”

[02/20/20]   Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. He was a crucial figure in the transition between the classical and romantic eras in classical music and is considered to be one of the greatest composers of all time. 02/17/2020
