Parent Orientation Meeting

As a Libertyville Montessori School parent of an LMS student, you would be asked to attend a Parent Orientation meeting in August before the start of the regular academic school term. Parents new to Libertyville Montessori School should make an effort to attend this meeting.
The date of the meeting is announced in a letter in late spring or early summer.

Parent/Teacher Conferences
LMS parents are asked to participate in parent-teacher conferences, which are held twice each year – early November and late April.
The November conferences are mandatory and the April conference is on an optional basis.

An on-going line of communication must exist between the parent and the faculty of Libertyville Montessori School. Various occurrences in the family may be jotted down in a short note to the Directress. The general development of the child, as well as problems and difficulties, if they exist, may be discussed personally.
Do not ever hesitate to place a call to speak with the Directress or the school office at any time.

Parent Observation
It is highly recommended that at least once during the school year parents reserve a time to come in to observe their child in the classroom setting. Observing your child "in action" is a wonderful way to see what he has been doing and to become acquainted with his classmates. It is a rewarding experience for both the parent and the student.
All observations are conducted Monday through Thursday.

Parent Share Time
During the last three months of the school year, LMS parents are invited to come into the classroom on Friday "show and tell" time and "share" something with their child’s class. Occupations, trip memorabilia, story reading, unique talents, etc., may be shared. Just call the LMS office to schedule a share date.

Parent Provided Snack
Once or twice each year, Libertyville Montessori School parents are asked to supply a snack for the entire class for one week. You will be contacted via a snack list about specific dates. Please send enough snack for about 30 children – that leaves extra for any "accidents" that may occur.
Peanut free snacks are appreciated.

Fundraising Events
On January 23, 2010, a fun social evening was enjoyed by all at our fundraising event to directly benefit the updating of our playground and purchase of new playground equipment! Thanks to our incredible parent committee and our hard-working teaching staff, it was a “rousing” success! Several more fund-raising events are in the works for the next few years to help defray our beautiful new playground expenses!

A casual social evening at Cubby Bear North, featured an all you can eat pizza and salad bar, followed by a silent auction and ending with the live auctioning of beautiful one of a kind ceramic pieces containing the thumbprint of each child in each classroom. The live auction was definitely the highpoint of the evening, with many parents requesting more events of this nature!

We will all continue to work together to create the best overall school environment for our children!
