Welcome to Classroom 12!

Dear Classroom 12 Families,

Welcome to the 2020 – 2021 school year! Ms. Cathy and I are so excited to welcome back our returning families and to meet all of our new families as well!

I would like to take this moment to announce Ms. Cathy Mowbary as a full-time addition to our Classroom 12 family!  Ms. Cathy is a certified Montessori teacher and has been teaching Spanish at Desert Garden Montessori since 2015.  She is so excited to join Classroom 12 with us this year!

We have so many amazing experiences planned for our children this year.  This year, we will be studying Asia in the Fall and Australia in the Spring.  Students will be participating in violin and music, creating classroom presentations, and getting hands-on with art, science fair, and PE, too!  Ms. Denise from Classroom 9 will be the Distance Learning Coordinator for the Lower Elementary program at DGM, and she will be joining us virtually to teach cultural lessons in Classroom 12 as well.

As you know, this year has brought the world some changes and unique challenges due to Covid-19.  To stay informed with DGM campus information, please always read the communications you receive via email from Desert Garden Circulation as well as refer to the DGM website for regular updates.  I will personally continue to keep you updated regarding all of the fun, new, and exciting happenings right here within Classroom 12 as well, of course!

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or just to say hello!  I love hearing from each of you and I have missed you so very much this summer.  My email is jcarson@desertgardenmontessori.org

“As we observe children, we see the vitality of their spirit, the maximum effort put forth in all they do, the intuition, attention and focus they bring to all life’s events, and the sheer joy they experience in living.” – Maria Montessori

Here’s to another beautiful year of community, creativity, and stunning learning experiences in Classroom 12.  Whether you have chosen in-person learning or online learning, I will see each of you very soon!

With Love,

Ms. Jill
