• First Day of school – Monday August 20 8:30 am Meet on the turf field for Wisdom Day! The entire school meets there before entering the building.
• Wisdom Day, First Day – August 20 8:30 am Bring family, friends, and flowers and join us for this warm welcome – a 20 year tradition – to our Montessori Borealis Community. This is a special and short celebration of the first day of school observed in many countries and right here in Juneau Alaska. All families and friends of our children are encouraged to attend. It is traditional to bring flowers (from the roadside, from a garden, from a store…).
• Parent Information Meeting August 22 5:30 pm Join us upstairs in our Commons for this parent-only event is a time for you to meet with your child’s teacher(s) and learn more about how we do things, why we do things, and what things are going to be done! This meeting is vital for your understanding of “Montessori” and our community. What you learn will really help your child flourish and your time with us in this community be positive and constructive.
• Picture Day August 24
• Shuttle Bus Information Children who live in the HBV attendance area may ride their normal bus to school. Children arriving on school buses should await the start of school on the turf field in front of Marie Drake. Teachers will greet the children at 8:30 am at the front doors of the school.
Please send a note the first day of school with your child’s bus number and a contact phone number in case we need to reach you. Event he oldest children forget important details by the end of their first long day back to school after a summer away.
