Dear Bridgeview Montessori Families,
Once again, we are asking you to trust us with a precious part of your heart, your child, for the 2019-2020 school year. It’s re-enrollment time.
What an exciting year this has been so far. Most significant on our end is exploring ways and means to reach every child who comes through our doors. We are also excited to be continuing with Strategic Plan work. This can mean so many different things to independent school educators, but with Sandy’s coursework, enthusiasm and drive, I know for us it will mean THOUGHTFUL ACTION!
Our faculty continues to grow through professional development opportunities and collaboration with one another. And of course, our students teach us something every day.
Our students…..your children….what an incredible group of human beings. We can’t imagine Bridgeview Montessori without each one of them. Please take some time to read through the re-enrollment process outlined below. Share your thoughts, questions and concerns with me, Sandy, Julie or your child’s teachers. We are here to help in your decision making process. Please include us in the conversation.
The nuts and bolts….
If your child is transitioning to a new Bridgeview Montessori program (into Kindergarten, EI or EII), you are invited to visit that next program. And, if you have another child for whom you are considering our school, please contact Suzanne to schedule an observation with that child in mind!
Of course, you are considering the financial commitment of keeping your child(ren) at Bridgeview Montessori. We are pleased that our financial aid budget will be increasing this year. Families who want to learn with us and who show financial need WILL receive some sort of financial grant. Our hope is that this grant makes attending Bridgeview Montessori a reality. Please visit the financial aid page on our website at www.bridgeviewmontessori.org/financial-aid.
Please follow the process outlined below for each child you intend to re-enroll:
1. Carefully read the Annual Enrollment Contract including details regarding the following:
Policies and Procedures
Children’s House Schedule Changes
Withdrawal and Refund Policy
Before Care and After Care Payment Details
Attendance and Punctuality Policy
Termination and Suspension Policy
2. Initial inside the boxes, fill in, and sign the bottom of the Annual Enrollment Contract.
3. Submit a $500 enrollment deposit made payable to Bridgeview Montessori School to secure your child’s placement in our program. You may also pay this deposit through our website at this link: www.bridgeviewmontessori.org/re-enrollingfamilies/ or stop in to deliver your paperwork and process a credit card payment with Suzanne.
4. NEW THIS YEAR: As soon as we receive your initialed and signed contract and your deposit, we will rollover your Smart Tuition account for tuition collection, June 2019 through May 2020. After we have rolled it over, you can make any changes to your account online.
ALL OF THE ABOVE PAPERWORK AND YOUR DEPOSIT ARE DUE MARCH 1, 2019.
Once the above materials are submitted, we do ensure returning students’ and their siblings’ placements before we admit new students. However, please understand that we can only secure these placements for returning students and siblings if we have completed enrollment information by March 1, 2019.
Thank you for sharing your children with us. As always, if you have any questions, please be in touch at your convenience.
Assistant Head of School
