Head of School's Message

The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.' - Maria Montessori

Dear Parents,

Spring is springing, the grass is growing and the environments are buzzing! Believe it or not there are only a handful of weeks before we go to the summer. This time is a busy time, and it slips away before we notice. So take some time to stop and observe this Spring, and consider the journey your child has been on, growing in capability and independence, since the Fall. Stopping to smell the roses is great advice!

God bless, Sean

Sean P. Garvey Head of School Renaissance Montessori School

Don’t forget to order scrip weekly at www.shopwithscrip.com and drop off your cash or checks by Tuesday. Mr Garvey will collect them curbside or you can put them directly into the SCRIP box in the office. If you haven’t set up an account yet, our enrollment code is 8F91287E14129.

Remember that if you want to earn that $300 quickly, it is best to set up a PrestoPay account because you can purchase and use electronic SCRIP immediately from your handheld device or home computer, no more dealing with dropping off checks and waiting a week for your cards to arrive.

Forgot to place an order? No problem, there is a SCRIP binder in the office with an array of cards for purchase. Simply go into the office and Kristina will help you through the purchase process. Any questions or problems please contact Rosanne Garvey at rosanne505@verizon.net or 703-447-9229.
