AISNE and AMS Re-accreditation

February 1, 2018

ASM is at the 5-year mark of its joint accreditation by the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Association of Independent Schools of New England (AISNE). Our faculty and staff have collaborated with one another over the past five years to achieve the AISNE recommendations. One of the striking aspects of this process for me […]


Winter Weather and School Closings

December 14, 2017

Last weekend’s snowstorm created a beautiful winter wonderland! This time of year as we anticipate pretty snow-covered landscapes, winter sports and hot chocolate, we also prepare ourselves for the shorter days, cold temperatures and hazardous driving conditions. We are fortunate when snowstorms occur on the weekend and have no impact on school. In the event […]


Parent Teacher Conferences

November 16, 2017

Parent and teacher conferences are right around the corner! Conferences are an essential component of your child’s education and a time for you to learn about your child’s progress. Come to the conference prepared to listen to what the teachers observe in school. Be willing to hear them speak to your child’s strengths and areas […]


School Closing Procedures

November 2, 2017

Who would have guessed when leaving the Halloween Fair last Friday afternoon that school would be cancelled for the next three days? Surely, not I! Thankfully, the temperatures have been on the warm side and those of us without power or water were not freezing. These events test our communication systems, and being prepared is […]


Parent Workshop with Sarah Ward

October 26, 2017

Have you ever wondered what goes through your child’s mind when you say “It’s time to get ready for school!”? Some children might think that they have all the time in the world to get ready. Others might get anxious and think that they need to drop what they’re doing and begin rushing around in […]

She spoke to us about childhood development, bullying and cyberbullying. New this year, our teachers will be implementing the M.A.R.C. bullying prevention curriculum. In the evening, Dr. Englander addressed our parents and […]


Bullying and Digital Engagement

September 21, 2017

Those of us who have experienced, or witnessed bullying as a child understand the pain, confusion and life-long effects of this harmful behavior. Years ago, these behaviors took place on neighborhood playgrounds, athletic fields and schools. Today, bullying is present in another dimension, the digital world. Chances are, your children will engage in social experiences […]


Parent Communications

September 14, 2017

ASM uses a parent notification system, SchoolMessenger®, to alert the community of a school cancellation due to inclement weather, or other potential emergency situations. We are judicious in our use of this system and reserve it for just the most important messages. Non-Emergency Communications All non-emergency communications will be sent to you via text message only. This includes school […]


Volunteer Appreciation

May 11, 2017

Thank you to all who attended last night’s Annual Meeting. As always, it was wonderful to connect, catch up and communicate our successes over this past school year! During the course of the evening, I lost count of the number of times that I heard the word volunteer, including within my own presentation on the […]
