Dear Elk Grove Families,
First, thank you to those who were able to participate in our Parent Session regarding re-opening plans last Thursday, October 15. I hope you found the information in this session valuable and were able to make your decision on the model that will work best for your family situation. This week we will be spending much time reviewing these family decisions with our teaching teams.
I also want to acknowledge all the families that have sent letters of appreciation to our administration and teaching staff acknowledging the difficult work while being sensitive to all family and teaching staff situations. We are all doing the best we can under these extraordinary circumstances. It is during these times that I reach back to my Montessori roots - respect for oneself, others and the environment and the celebration of differences. CMP was born through the collaboration of families and teaching staff working along side one another with the success of each and every student at the forefront of our decisions. This collaboration by the entire community has made CMP and outstanding choice for families and teaching staff.
Also, please join me in recognizing the importance of perseverance as we all do our best to incorporate it into our lives. We must work together as a community to identify ways to pull it out of ourselves and also help our children recognize that they are strong and have grit. That it isn't in the absence of challenge that makes us strong, but our ability to move through that challenge and come out stronger on the other side. We are resilient, we are steadfast, and we have perseverance. Now more than ever we need to come together and work together.
Thank you for your continued support.
