Parent Voices: Why Montessori?

dismissal except Nest & all-day YCC

Wednesday 10.16.2013 Open House for prospective parents 6:30-8pm Tell your friends!

Next weekend at The Cobb School Next weekend is a big deal at Cobb. As you know, Friday is Grandparents’ & Special Friends’ Day. This very special event is a favorite of the children’s (and mine!). I very much hope your child will be able to bring a grandparent or special guest for the morning. Children need relationships beyond their parents. This is sometimes difficult for parents to understand. Parents are the ones in the trenches, day in and day out, and it seems only fair that they be the center of their child’s world. But if parents insist their child’s other relationships are second fiddle, the child loses. Grandparents and special friends provide a child with a new perspective, a new set of rules, a new way to have fun. Value this and everyone wins.

Have a beautiful weekend, Mary Lou Cobb

We must BELIEVE the child is capable of great work. These photos illustrate the awesome work accomplished by the small hands in a Montessori environment. This begins with a very real belief in the child. Click HERE to watch.

Please send your child’s grandparent or special friend to The Cobb School at 10:30am on Friday morning. Our honored guests will enjoy their own unique experiences with your child at our school. Please also come to the Country Fair on Saturday. Bring your friends and neighbors, and we will welcome them into our world at The Cobb School.

Harvest Table at the Country Fair...

Notes & Reminders... RSVP Today! Please be sure your child’s grandparent or special friend has RSVP’d to mail@cobbschool.com. (You can RSVP for him or her!) We are tallying final numbers Monday. Thank you.

The Country Fair (October 5, 11:00-2:30pm) is a treasured Cobb School event made possible by the generous volunteerism of our families. We need parents (and grandparents if they wish!) to volunteer so we can make the fair a success for all our students.

Parent Coffee in the Library Wednesday, October 9 8:30 - 10am Parents discover Montessori down various paths. Please join us for an engaging and revealing discussion of the journeys current Cobb School parents travelled before finding and settling on Montessori. Hear the reasons why they chose it then and why they’re still choosing it today. Learn how their perspectives have taken shape over the years and their ah-ha moments along the way. There will be time for Q &A and opportunities for you to share your own reasons for choosing Montessori. Special guests include current Cobb School parents. Come Wednesday morning and find out who!

Please consider sharing your baking talents with the school and make a contribution to the Country Fair Harvest Table. Pies, cakes, brownies, breads, cookies and more! Please be mindful that all baked goods must be NUT FREE and we also would love to have numerous GLUTEN FREE options. Drop off all donations in the Nest on Friday morning.

Next week at The Cobb School Don’t Forget! Our FACEBOOK page includes interesting articles and many photos and videos of our students. Be sure to check out our page. Also, our new BLOG is flying! Please enjoy our brief posts that highlight the magic of Montessori.
