Board of Directors (BOD) Meeting Minutes  February 28, 2011


With her shoes on the right feet, we always have a 50-50 chance that will happen, a back pack stuffed with her gear and a smile on her face, Lucy made her way down the front walk to the car on her first day of school.  An outsider would have thought she was a pro, had been doing it for months, or years even.  Flash to her mom, standing just off to the side, a tear in her eye, anxiety in her heart and pride beaming from ear to ear.  If truth be told, Lucy’s transition to her new toddler community classroom at MAC was an uneventful experience, but only for her.


“I’m a primary kid now!”

Shortly, before Lucy started at MAC, I had a discussion about when she would transition up to the Primary classroom.  At the time, I needed to know so I could adjust and plan for the move.  Since there appeared to be no worries about her entering her new school back in September, now I had little fear about this next transition.  And now that it’s here, I still have no fears accept for the tears of pride in my eyes, you’d never know anything had changed for Lucy.


The Montessori Magic

 

It has been just about 2 months since Lucy started in her primary class after a successful transition from her toddler class.  I laugh at her quick progression, finding her toddler teacher in the hall and wanting nothing to do with her at first to now actually looking for her so she might share with her something great that has happened in primary.  I peek around the corner after I drop Lucy off in the morning to catch a glimpse of the magic.  At home, she constantly pretends we are in school.  It is circle time and then work time and then she might grab a book from the shelf to read to me.  Of course, she is always the teacher.


So, as the Montessori journey continues, so do the questions.  As Lucy runs into school each morning asking if it is a “Specials Day” or if she can open the front door with my key card, I look around and wonder, “what am I supposed to be doing?”

The best source of information has come from the other parents I have met either in dropping off or picking up or through the communication from our room parents.  It is difficult to know everything to ask when your lead teacher says, “Do you have any questions?” and impossible for the teacher to anticipate everything a new parent will need to know.
