A new parent meeting is scheduled on Wednesday evening, August 28th, at seven o’clock. This meeting will introduce you to the Montessori philosophy and the basic view of children, families and learning that we have here at SWSM. We hope you will make arrangements to attend this adult evening so Kathy Williams can answer your questions and concerns. This meeting should last only about one hour.

As a Montessori school, we believe that education should be an aide to life. We, who have watched our kindergarteners develop over these past years, feel in awe and respect for each of them. These children have humbled us in the speed of their physical, emotional and academic development, the depth of their sincerity and love for each other. They leave us hopeful that their future education continues to be an aid to life, that their influence on the people they touch is always wholesome and that they continue to grow in wisdom and charity.
With love, we wish them farewell!
