It Takes A Village!
Posted by Holly Hirst on September 2, 2021
All the hard work of preparing for the first week of school, both at home and on campus, paid off! Although there are still kinks to work out, hearing the crescendo of student voices inside the building and outside on the playgrounds and fields was music to my ears!
Students eagerly jumped into learning new routines, welcoming new classmates, and immersing themselves in Montessori and academic work. So much more to come!
On a personal note, since spring of 2020, I’ve had time to reflect on just how much I missed hearing and engaging in the interactions between all of the children and adults involved in a school community. This week felt like coming home. I thank each and every one of you for welcoming me!
Many thanks to the ASM faculty, support staff, and Management Team for going the extra mile to get the school up and running during this continued time of uncertainty. I share appreciation for all of our families for your patience, assistance, and support as well. There is truth to the adage, “It takes a village to raise a child.”
