Four: 4th Moving Up Day

Opening Remarks
4th Moving Up Day
Kiddie Toes Montessori School
29 March, 2011

By: Divine May Flor Mercado- David
School Directress

Year one… One big step forward.

Year two… Soar high, fly high.

Year three… Three’s a charm.

And then… there’s four.

But does anyone in the room know the meaning of the number “four” – F-O-U-R?

Let me give you a few definitions.

Four… is the natural number following 3… and preceding 5.

In religion, Four represents the Noble Truths in Buddhism.

There are Four great elements in the Universe… earth, water, fire and wind.

There are Four stages of enlightenment.

There are Four gospels, according to Christianity.

There are Four Archangels in Islam.

There are Four basic states of matter… solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.

Four. It has different meanings to different people.

But here at KTMS, Four is important for us… because today, marks the 4th year of KTMS’ existence.

Four, for KTMS means stability. Much like a chair or a table, which sits securely and sturdily – with 4 legs to provide stability and permanence.

We have labored, together with you, dear parents, to provide the learners with the best possible educational framework there is. We have developed, improved, and tirelessly kept on enhancing the kind of elevated education, that your kids deserve.

We have not only continued with our quality academic processes, but we have made sure that we provide a secure and stable learning and physical environment for the learners. And so it is with much pride that we would like to inform you that KTMS will have a new home. We are soon moving to an ideal location, complete with all the things and elements that you could hope for and expect in a school of the future. This is the product of countless of hours of planning, brainstorming, conceptualization, fundraising, discussions, monitoring and implementation.

Today, we are moving up… together with our learners… together with their parents and care-takers. We are all moving up to greater heights because we have demonstrated that with our joint hearts and minds, we can make a difference for these young souls.

For you little learners… we congratulate you. And you truly deserve a round of applause… You have shown how it is to be a true and genuine Montessorian.

For you dear parents and care-takers… let us be your children’s foundation for their education. We commit to continuously provide a stable environment for your children’s development. Help us, in building and maintaining a stable quality educational system that only KTMS can give.

We fervently wish that you will choose to still hold hands with KTMS to provide your children with only the best. We request you to continue believing in us… because we will never fail you, and most especially our dear learners. Together, we can definitely help them to shine… towards stardom… towards success.

Thank you. And let’s all shine!
