Weekly Announcements for Week of August 12th

August 12, 2018

Dear Clark Families,

The last few days of summer are upon us! Please take time as a family to reflect on your summer, what your children have learned and how they’ve grown. Check in with them about their summer homework and what they are excited about for the upcoming year. Enjoy a few final family rituals (evening walks, favorite meals, going to the park) and then get ready to return to school! Please see here for a great article on preparing for the first day of school.

“Education is a work of self-organization by which humans adapt themselves to the conditions of life.”

Maria Montessori
