Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year at Bloomington Montessori School!
We are excited to begin the new school year on August 7. When you arrive, please take a moment to give a warm welcome to Quinn McAvoy, our new Head of School. Quinn comes to us from the Chicago area, with 20 years of teaching and serving in the administration at All Day Montessori School, most recently as the Executive Director. She has a Master’s Degree in Nonprofit Management from Adler University, a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education from Xavier with an Endorsement in Special Education, and an Infant-Toddler Montessori credential from Seton. Quinn has moved to Bloomington with her husband and two children, both of whom are enrolled at BMS, and she is looking forward to meeting every one of you.
We are also excited to welcome Emily Krejci back to our kitchen. Emily is delighted to be back!
Lunches and Aftercare
Please mark your calendars now for the opening and closing of lunch and aftercare sign ups. Both open on the 15thof each month and, more importantly, close on the 25th, at 11:59:59 pm. Thank you in advance for setting alarms and otherwise ensuring your child is signed up for the lunches and care needed for the month.
One more note on lunches. You have the option to set a default meal choice for your child. If your child will sometimes eat a meal that varies from a default, either please do not choose a default setting or remember to adjust by hand the meal choices accordingly before submitting your selections.
Stay Informed about BMS
The school uses three primary tools for communicating with you: email, Facebook and notices in your Parent Pocket. We know your days are busy with work, parenting, errands, cooking, laundry, and all the rest. We will do all we can to streamline our messages to you. When you hear from us, please take a moment to check the message—if you hear from us, it is important.
See you soon!
