5TH KTMS Montessori Week

5TH KTMS Montessori Week

05 September 2011
By: Ms. Divine May Flor Mercado-David

The School year 2011 – 2012 at Kiddie Toes Montessori School already started a few months back, but I would still like to take this opportunity to welcome you all.
Education can be compared to a great big canvas. And this year we would like our learners to throw as much paint and colors as they can on the canvas of their education. I would like enjoin the parents, guardians and teachers to value and uphold the importance of learning, but still having fun at the same time. The education for these learners should be sound, creative and innovative. That is why Kiddie Toes Montessori School, together with the parents, guardians and the learners themselves, will help and work with each other to make this a reality.

Today is the opening of our 5th Montessori Week. We started with humble beginnings. Our first Montessori day activity was a very simple motorcade with only 24 learners, in a small house in a private subdivision. For this school year I am happy to share to with of you that the KTMS family is growing steadily. We now have 124 learners. More importantly, activities are now well participated and parents and guardians are really giving their best effort in every year’s contests and activities. Activities like these develop a stronger bond between each learner as well as the parents and guardians. We are a very small community that is why we want everybody to treat each other as family members.

Our teachers will also take action and help our learners to achieve academic, sports-related, cultural, social and life-long learning. May I take this opportunity to thank the teachers for their continued professionalism, excellence and dedication to their work. It is your motivation in the classroom that will help to create a year that is bright and brimming with opportunities.

However, even more importantly, our learners themselves will have to take action to further their education. Our young ladies and gentlemen should likewise begin to realize that they cannot merely sit back and expect the greater School community to do everything for them - they should realize the importance of self-motivation and independence. They should be prepared to help themselves.

It is an appeal that we make to our young children today. Learners… Make the most of the fantastic educational opportunities that you have. Throw as much paint as you can on to the canvas of your education this year. Don’t be afraid to try out new things, learn new skills and participate in new activities. We believe in you. You are smart and talented kids. You can do it!

This year, we will continue to improve, innovate and diversify to make our vision of providing a holistic education a reality! Let's continue to work and help each other to give these children the world!
Thank you and have fun!
