One month down... and it's almost BBQ time!
This week's edition brought to you by Stephanie Swanson, PTA Parent Volunteer (not an official spokesperson of Border Star Montessori or KCPS)
Welcome to mid-September! It’s a little strange being only one month in and already have had two 4-day weeks, but we are so thankful that our teachers are getting the professional development time (and holidays!) that they need. Every day off of school for professional development is another day of investment in our students, our school, and our district and it will benefit all of us so much. Our teachers are the backbone of our school and deserve all of the support they can get to become even better!
One of the downsides of the days off of school is the break in routine. For some kids, they love the extra day home. Our smaller ones tend to get more clingy after days off and I’m ready to banish my moody older ones outside for the rest of the weekend!! Don’t be surprised if separation anxiety peaks again after the long weekend. Stick with the routine you’ve been developing and they will settle back in soon. And remember, as sad as they are at drop-off, kids are really good at adjusting to new circumstances in life - often far better than us adults. :)
