On Tuesday, October 14, Katy Myers from the Montessori Junior/Senior High School will be hosting an information night fro prospective families at Denison from 5:30-7pm.
Dear Denison Families,
Please join us on Tuesday, October 14 at 5:30 in the Denison Library to learn about Denver Montessori Junior/Senior High School and why Montessori Adolescent Education is a great choice for 7th grade! You will also learn about the school choice process for 2015-2016, including the ability for Denison 5th grade students to reserve a 7th grade spot at DMHS for the 2016/2017 school years.
Principal Katy Myers will discuss the DMHS curriculum, program, transportation, new location, assessment and the tremendous success the DMHS students experienced last year. She will also share how the program has evolved from our initial culture building work to the current strong academic and whole child program in place today.
All students and families are welcome to attend.
There will be a PAC meeting at 9:00 on Friday, October 17.
At the request of students and teachers, there will be an opportunity for elementary students to choose between going straight to their classrooms at 8:45 or going outside for 15 minutes of morning recess time. Coach Brian will be supervising them. All students who want to eat breakfast will need to do so before going to their classrooms or going outside. All students still need to enter through the front doors and walk through the main hall. Students may not be dropped off on the playground. Primary drop-off will remain the same.
On Tuesday, October 28 from 5:30-7:00 there will be a town-hall meeting to talk about what is happening at Denison. Members of the Collaborative School Committee and School Leadership Team will be available to answer questions. The focus of this meeting will be the full implementation of the extended learning time plan for next year and both authentic Montessori assessments and State Level Assessments. Childcare and translation will be provided.
