EC/ LE/ 1st Grade New Comers Orientation
Dear EC and LE Newcomer Parents, Dear parents of First Grade students,
Joining a new school brings with it exciting prospects and hope for the future. It is also a big change, for you and your child. We would like to make your transition to Gateway seamless, and give you confidence in the knowledge that you are leaving your child in safe and experienced hands.
We would therefore like to cordially invite you and your child to join us this Thursday, September 15 for our annual Newcomer Welcome Hour. This is an opportunity for us to give you a warm welcome into our community and for you and your child to spend quality time with your child's teachers in the classroom. It is an opportunity for your child to meet with his or her teachers and become acquainted with them before the official start of the academic year.
During this hour, your child's teachers will give you an overview of the Montessori philosophy and how it will be incorporated into your child’s everyday life at Gateway. You will take a tour of your child's classroom and learn about the different subjects that will be taught over the course of the academic year, and the unique Montessori materials that your child will use to learn them. There will be a 15-minute Q&A session at the conclusion of the hour should you have any inquiries.
Date: Thursday, September 15, 2022
Arrival time/location: 9:30 am to 10:00 am at Gate2 the Newcomer Welcome Hour begins at 10:00 am and ends at 11:00 am.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you.
Sincerely, Gateway Community
Gateway International Montessori School
