Welcome to our Parent Book Club. Check out our schedule and planned book list.
The book group is open to all to all parents, grandparents, community members, staff and anyone with an interest in reading and discussing books geared toward the Montessori methodology, parenting, children’s education and other related topics. Members are welcome to pick and choose which books they want to read and there is no required attendance at the meetings. You can even join the discussions without having read the entire book (you’ll still get a lot out of it)!
Next Meeting: Monday, December 11th, 7-9pm at The DCS Montessori Library
Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brene Brown available on Kindle, Audible and print and also through Douglas County Libraries. Daring Greatly is not about winning or losing. It’s about courage. In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena—whether it’s a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. Daring Greatly is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

PARENT EDUCATION TALK FOR PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS
Raising Resilient Girls is a 1-hour talk followed by a 30 minute Q&A session for parents, teachers, and community members
Girls Leadership speaks to parents and teachers across the country about the challenges girls face today, the reasons why we see girls struggling, and what we can do to help them. In this acclaimed 1-hour talk (followed by a 30 minute Q&A), we share how to help girls practice assertive self-expression, emotional intelligence, and healthy relationships, preparing them for a life of personal and social leadership. This engaging presentation covers the development of girl dynamics beginning in preschool through high school.
As written up in Parents Magazine, this talk concentrates on practical advice that can be executed in a real-life setting, such as:
- Talking about your own not-so-happy feelings;
- Sharing your mistakes;
- Helping your daughter to solve her own problems;
- The Good Girl Phenomenon and conflict as an opportunity for positive change
This presentation is for adults only. Parents, Community Members, and Teachers from outside our school are welcome!
Presentation Fee: Free
Re-Enrollment is COMING SOON
For All Students who will Re-Enroll at DCS Montessori for next School Year, look for an email on November 28th with details. You need do nothing until that time.
Please continue reading if you do not intend to return to our school next year.
Do you want to enroll your child [not presently a student at our school] next year?
Our Lottery deadline is November 30th. And YES, EVERY NEW STUDENT MUST APPLY VIA OUR LOTTERY – even siblings.
Current students do not enter the Lottery, they simply re-enroll and we will email you that information at the end of November.
Just FYI… This year we have had very little change to our enrollment. This means that there are still siblings on our wait lists hoping to be offered a spot this year. With the exception of 3-year-old Preschool, we are fully enrolled in all grades. Our suggestion is to enroll students at the Preschool level to ensure your child can continue enrollment into our Elementary grades.
Questions about enrollment? Please contact Brycie at email@example.com or call 720-531-3309.
