Several of our CCSD Montessori teachers had the opportunity to attend a training session led by Rob Keyes, the author of this book. It looks to be a great resource for everyone in the Montessori community. You can read it free with Kindle Unlimited, download it for less than $4, or buy the paperback for $7.95. A bargain in any format!!

Congrats to former Hursey principal, LaDene Conroy, for being named the CCSD Employee of the Year for Access and Opportunity last Wednesday night. She was honored for her passion, her advocacy for all children, and for her drive to continue the expansion of the Montessori program. No one is more deserving of this honor!
www.washingtonpost.com 'An appropriate curriculum for young children is one that includes the focus on supporting children’s in-born intellectual dispositions, their natural inclinations.'
This is going to be a great presentation if you're free tonight!
Come hear Dr. Jane Bluestein at James Simons tonight from 5:30-7:30. We can ALL use some tips on stress-reduction! Bring a friend.
Friends, the car-rider line at school is a struggle for many...both in the morning and the afternoon. The School Improvement Council (SIC) will be working on this problem with hopes of having a much smoother and more efficient system for the start of the 2015 school year. Any and all suggestions are welcomed!!!
m.huffpost.com I don't believe in the people who are attacking our public schools. Sending my children to public schools is the ultimate sign of support, and helps keep me more deeply involved in a precious public resource that needs, and deserves, our support....

Siblings without rivalry?
Is "siblings without rivalry" possible? This is a great start.

The application deadline for school choice in CCSD is November 1. If your child already attends Hursey Montessori, you do NOT need to fill out a new application. If you have another child that you would like to attend for 2015-2016, you DO have to complete an application for that child. The application can be printed from the school's website, or picked up in the office.
www.forbes.com Wired has an excellent-yet-frustrating story on what they call "A Radical New Teaching Method" that is transforming education. Of course, as the article itself says, there is nothing "new" about this teaching method: let kids figure things out on their own, and they'll not only learn better, but be…
www.washingtonpost.com A new study on the academic effects of homework offers not only some intriguing results but also a lesson on how to read a study -- and a reminder of the importance of doing just that: reading studies (carefully) rather than relying on summaries by journalists or even by the researchers themselves.…

Great Letter to the Editor about public Montessori in CCSD in today's Post & Courier.
www.postandcourier.com There is nothing "anti-American" about students debating the pros and cons of the U.S. dropping two atomic bombs on Japan near the end of World War II. In fact, I remember having to write a paper on the very topic many years ago as a junior in high s
We saw these dogs loose yesterday. The kids tried to get me to stop, but I didn't. They were in front of that church on Mosstree...just off Durant. Keep your eyes open!!
charleston.craigslist.org My 2 chihuahua mixes went missing/ escaped from my back yard on Tuesday 8/26. One is brown and the other is black and brown. They are wearing collars.
Ok, folks...I need some tshirt designs!! Still not sure whether we'll piggy-back a PTA tshirt fundraiser, or have them printed locally, but I need some design and possibly logo ideas. The biggest challenge is what name goes on there. Officially, we're "Montessori Children's House of North Charleston," but that doesn't feel like it really represents us...especially since we have kids through 8th grade now. Maybe "Hursey Montessori?"
In creating a logo, we should try to incorporate the Montessori principles as much as possible: peace & diversity come to mind.
If you know a logo designer would would do a pro bono design, let me know!!
So excited! We've been given approval to sell Montessori shirts to be worn on spirit day at school! We will likely do it as part of a PTA fundraiser. The past several years, they've sold Hursey shirts at the beginning of the year, but it's been a while since Montessori shirts were included! Anybody want to do a SIMPLE logo??
