Who is my child’s Teacher?

May 22, 2017 @ 9:58 am posted by Brycie Strother

teacherAs a Montessori school, students generally remain with the same teacher for a three year cycle.  The cycles are:  Preschool & Kindergarten;  1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades;  4th, 5th and 6th grades;  7th and 8th grades.

If your child will have a new teacher, once it is AFTER JULY 1st, you will find the teacher’s name by accessing your account on the Campus Portal.  Log in, click your child’s name at the top, and click “Schedule” on the left.  You will also be able to link directly to that teacher’s email address.

Parents who are new to the school will be sent access credentials to their Campus Portal account on or just after July 1st.

End of Year News

Field Days for Elementary students:  Be sure to apply sunscreen on your child prior to sending them to school—they will be outdoors and may need that protection.  Lower Elementary Field Day is on Monday, May 22nd and Upper Elementary Field Day is on Tuesday, May 23th.  Primary students do not participate in Field Day and Middle School students have their own fun day.

Field Day is held at Retreat Park just down the street.  From our school, turn right onto Castle Pines Parkway, then turn right onto Tangleoak Lane – the park will be on your right.  Students will walk there, enjoy their games, eat lunch, and then return to school.  Please pack a disposable lunch for your child on their Field Day.  Your help is needed to support our Field Day Events.  Click here to provide needed snacks or water.

Graduationscelebrate, Concerts and Moving Up Ceremonies:  We are expecting crowds for our graduation and moving up ceremonies.  Please arrive early to allow time to park at the businesses across the street and walk to school, if needed. 

Cars parked in any area of our parking lot marked “Fire Lane” and cars parked in our handicapped spaces without proper signage may be ticketed or towed.  Cars which are double parked will be towed at the owner’s expense.

All Graduations are listed under “Upcoming Events.”  Please scroll down to the last two weeks of school.  And if you have questions, please check with your child’s teacher regarding specifics of their graduation / moving up celebrations.

Name Cards and Bar Codes for Dismissal:  Please keep these for next year.  In our effort to conserve resources, we will no longer be issuing new cards annually.

Lost and Found:  Please come to school and go through our Lost and Found articles.  All unclaimed Lost and Found items will be donated to charity after the last day of school.

Key Fobs / Cards:  You should keep your Key Fobs / Cards and use them next year.  If you will no longer have students at our school, stop by the front office to return your keycard—your deposit ($13 per card) will be refunded to you by mail.

From our Library:  

Ahoy, Library Mateys!
We have had a fun year in the library. Although we have more adventures ahead, we are nearing the end for this year. Here are a few things we are doing in the next few weeks:  We are learning how to do a Book Talk and we are asking each student to tell us about a good book they read this year and give us a good recommendation for summer reading.  The week of May 7th, the public library will be coming in to do “Review Crew” and will let us know about some awesome new fiction we can read over the summer and tell us about their summer reading program.  The week of May 14th Spellbinders will be coming into the library to share traditional stories and personal history tales in unique ways.

Here are a few important dates to remember for the library:library read

  • Tuesday, May 9th: Last day to check out books
  • Wednesday, May 10th: All books due back
  • Friday, May 12th: Overdue reminder emails will be sent out

From our Kitchen:  Please ensure your lunch accounts are paid in full.  All credit balances will be transferred to next year, so your child will start the year off with lunch funds.  If your child will be transferring to a school in-district, their lunch credit will also move with them.  If your child is otherwise withdrawing/graduating from DCS Montessori, you will receive a refund for your credit balance.  Questions about your lunch account?  Please view your lunch balance in the Campus Portal.
