MONTESSORI PARENTS' ASSOCIATION
Bay Farm’s Montessori Parents' Association (MPA) is a dynamic volunteer organization comprised of parents/guardians of Bay Farm Montessori Academy students. The MPA organizes special school events and activities scheduled throughout the year.
The MPA’s ongoing success is a combination of generous parental involvement, fresh ideas, and a wide range of diverse interests. Through the efforts of the MPA, the school community enjoys many opportunities to get to know each other and allow parents to see their children play, laugh, and thrive alongside fellow students. The cooperation, creativity, and high level of energy within our organization enhance the Bay Farm spirit of Maria Montessori and support our teachers and staff as they provide high-quality Montessori education. Please review the Leadership Team below and Room Parent page in your Directory to see how you can be a part of this terrific organization.
This year we are hosting Montessori in the Home Workshops prior to our MPA Meetings. In September, ELI Lead Teacher Katie Byrne, discussed homework and how best to support your child while encouraging independence. In October, she reviewed long-term projects and focused on the Bay Farm Science Fair. Our November workshop focused on Toddler House. Mary Sullivan, a Lead Teacher of Snowy Owl, discussed ways to support toddler independence with activities at home.
Our next MPA Workshop will be on Tuesday, December 17th at 9am in the Great Room. Chrissy Brodeur, Lead Teacher of Osprey and Kindergarten, will be discussing the journey through Children's House and how to support your child's transition from Preschool to Pre-K and Pre-K to Kindergarten.
