Dear Members,

By now, I hope you have all taken just a few moments to open your Montessori Family Alliance (MFA) account. Ask your school administrator for the link so that you have access to “The Montessori App,” where you can find everything you are looking for right on your phone, your computer, or your tablet.

Wit & Wisdom: A family chat! is broadcast on the last Wednesday of each month from 8:00-9:00 pm ET on Zoom. Topics include: strong-willed children; family communication; a candid conversation with a former Montessori family; financial literacy for children; and much more. It’s free!

Many of our member schools are offering “The Parenting Puzzle: Peacing It All Together” at their schools to help them translate the secrets of Montessori classroom leadership into Montessori homelife leadership. Ask your administrator when your school will be offering it.

Connect with your fellow Montessori families and schools around the globe.

Encourage your school leaders to capture important moments, fun events, school milestones and anniversaries, student trips, etc. by sharing high-resolution photos (with permission to publish). We just need your school’s name, location, and a few words about the event.

You can also send us a brief, real-life story with permission to publish along with high-resolution photos. Your story could be an “ooops” that didn’t work (lesson learned) story, a funny anecdote (here’s what happened on the way to school), a story about how you and your child worked on a project together, or any other story related to home or school life.

I wish you all a peaceful new year.

Lorna McGrath
