We are getting our hearts and minds ready for the purposeful work ahead of educating our students. As always, we make ways for the work to be meaningful while honoring our time together. We started the day with meetings and logistics and the second part of the day was a surprise field trip to Lynn’s house at the beach. The school buses picked us up for a Montessori field study on STEM. The teachers worked in their school based teams to create a floating sandcastle. In true style the primary one was indestructible, middle school had a history component, the upper teachers made sure it was a winner, lower el teacher castle looked it’s part, MTSS was super creative and the arts team castle had function and flair! We had 60 teachers on the beach building so there is no doubt we were the afternoon entertainment!
Tomorrow, we return to prepare the physical environment and attend professional development with district teachers.
We are so excited to welcome back the students and families in a very short time.
See you all very soon!

Graduation is another thing that Covid forced to change but in a great way! Our 8th grade graduation was always at night and very formal. Last year, we changed to the drive-through and this year we upgraded to a drive-through “P-A-R-T-A-Y” with the whole school followed by a beautiful reception at Vintage. It was perfect! Thanks to Ryan Neal @Events by Live for setting us up with awesome music, bubbles and confetti bombs that took our party to the next level!

Rise Up

“Out of the huts of history’s shame, I rise. Up from a past that’s rooted in pain, I rise. I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide, welling and swelling I bear in the tide.” Maya Angelou’s poem, “Still I Rise,” was the pillar of East Cooper Montessori Charter School’s social justice project that challenged students to answer the question, “What will you rise up for?”
