An exciting year ahead

Principals’ message
September  2019
“Within the child lies the fate of the future.”- Maria Montessori
We welcome you to another school year! We extend open arms to the many new families joining our Killarney School community and look forward to some exciting experiences in the months ahead. 
The school will reopen Monday, August 26th and we welcome students back on Tuesday, September 3rd. Families are invited to come at 8:55 and join us for some treats and photo opportunities courtesy of our Killarney Parent Council.
We will begin our soft entry (south doors open @ 8:55) on Wednesday, Sept. 4th.
Rita and I participated in some Montessori learning this summer and felt inspired and humbled by the talents Maria Montessori had in her understanding of the potential of the child.  At Killarney we work towards development of the whole child through academic, leadership, health and well-being, and social development opportunities.  We know your children have the potential to be change agents for our future and we thank you for your belief in our Montessori program.

Our 2019-20 Killarney calendar is available on our website so please remember to take a look at all the dates that lay ahead.
A reminder if you ordered a yearbook, it will be distributed sometime in the next few weeks.  This was to allow our June activities to be part of the yearbook. Families who have left Killarney will be contacted once the yearbooks have arrived.
See you on Tuesday, September 3rd!
With Peace and Gratitude,
Bonnie Caldwell and Rita Traxler
