Dear Parents of Students in Lower Elementary Room 107,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at The Montessori Academy! Please review the documents below and return all forms to the office no later than Friday, August 13th.
My name is Patrick Sweeney and, while I might not be a native of South Bend, I have lived here for most of my life and have found my love for all things education right here in Michiana. I began teaching five years ago at a local youth theatre. There I met Mr. Kelly and was asked to take over the music program at TMA, which introduced me to the wonderful world of Montessori. I've since also been teaching Spanish at TMA. This summer I've had the opportunity to train at the Midwest Montessori Teacher Training Center near Chicago and have further fallen in love with the Montessori philosophy. I can't wait to meet all of my new students and share the gift of a Montessori education.
Please mark your calendar for Friday, August 20th and drop in for a short visit anytime between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. This visit time is for Parents and Students. Also, plan to join us on Wednesday, August 25th at 6:00 p.m. for our All Parent Back-to-School Meeting. This is a parent-only meeting. Childcare will be provided, if needed. That night, after a brief session in the gym, parents will break out to individual classrooms to hear important details.
Please review the Phase-In Schedule, below, which details our time during the week of August 23rd. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to seeing you!
