Welcome, New Families!
Dear Lee Montessori Enrolled Families:
Welcome to Lee! On behalf of the Lee Montessori Family Teacher Association (FTA), we are excited you
chose our school, and look forward to getting to know you, your child and your family better.
The Family Teacher Association’s purpose is to support the administration, teachers,
families, and most especially our students at Lee Montessori. To be successful, we
know that the support and involvement of the parents and guardians of our students will
be utmost importance.
We also know that Montessori may be new to many of you and some of you may be
sending your child to school for the first time. Lee families are ready to help answer
your questions and support you through the first few weeks at school via our Buddy
Family program. Please complete our form at http://tinyurl.com/y26hw7d4 to be
connected to a family.
The FTA is a parent, teacher, family and community organization that is run by volunteers. We have
accomplished a great deal as an FTA: we’ve hosted summer and school year playdates, planted a growing
garden, started a school library from the ground up, built a playground, conducted school-wide service
activities, organized spring and fall socials, held a school-wide field day, launched a race and diversity working group, opened a food and clothing pantry for our school community… and so much more!
We are always looking for ways families can work with and for our school.
There are so many ways for us to all work together, which is what makes
our school a true community, rather than simply a place to drop off your
children during the school day. We have various events, meetings and
projects that occur during the school year. Our FTA runs a family-Facebook
group and Twitter to share volunteer opportunities, upcoming events, FTA
Committee opportunities, Montessori information and more.
Your time and talents ranging from photography and grant writing, to baking and organizing will certainly be
