January Newsletter

We are confident that the New Year is off to a great start! The children have already begun to act on their resolutions. We have discussed that “resolutions” are like making a promise that you try to keep all year long. Our list is posted, if you would like to see what your child has promised for the new year! Have you made your list? What would make the difference in your life? Perhaps we could encourage ourselves like we do the children and have these resolutions become reality for the year 2016.

1. Dover Montessori is OPEN on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 15th. Our class has designed a project around “dream!” I have a dream to Be… what are your dreams – where do your inspirations come from? We would like to know!
