January's Message

Principal Photo
Happy 2017 and welcome back! I hope that everyone is refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for an exciting second half to this school year.

As January's etymology is taken from the Roman god Janus [having two faces, one looking ahead to the new year and other looking behind to the past year], we might also employ the same viewpoint -- or viewpoints, depending on how you look at it. We may be drawn by the ‘newness’ of the year, with the uncharted journey of what is to come and the wish for better things. Or, our thoughts may be on tasks left unfinished or fussing over aging yet another year. Ellen Goodman declared that “… (Many) spend the New Year walking through their life’s memories, room by room, drawing up a list of works to be done by focusing on the cracks that need to be patched. In contrast, we ought to walk through these rooms of our lives not looking for flaws, but rather, for potential.” This passage is somewhat parallel to that which our Montessori teaching philosophy implores. As Montessorians, we discern the importance of looking for the potential in each individual child, knowing that that we cannot help children achieve their fullest merely by focusing on their flaws. As we always have, we will continue in our pursuit to bring about their upmost potential by focusing on their unrealized prospective.

Know that this first month of the ‘New Year’ does incorporate many old and new happenings, from continued past club meetings to updated new club meetings to the annual PTA Bounce U Family Event. Be sure to visit the BCMCS Quick Reference Calendar for the most recent updates and information.

Thank you so much for your continued support in assisting all of us in providing an exemplary educational experience for your children. Take care, and until next time. . .
Mr. Brian Long
