Welcome to the MBTS LEU Classroom

We warmly welcome you to what promises to be a successful and joyful school year at Montessori By The Sea. We cannot wait to begin inquiring, exploring and discovering with the children, who will surely be full of energy and imagination after a long and restful summer holiday.

We welcome back our returning second and third-year students, and also warmly welcome our new first-year students!

We would like to personally invite all Lower Elementary parents to attend this year’s Parent Orientation Evening, on Tuesday, September 6th, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. Starting in the LEU Room, we will begin with a Lower Elementary Program overview for parents in both LEU and LED classrooms. After this, parents are invited to then join us in the LEU classroom for more specific information about our daily routines and classroom procedures. This evening is a valuable opportunity to get to know or get re-acquainted with your child’s teachers, to ask questions about the curriculum and the program, and to also re-connect with other parents in the school community. Parents who are new to the Lower Elementary Program are especially encouraged to join us for this evening.

We are both eagerly awaiting the beginning of the school year, and look forward to working with you and your child over the next ten months!
