First Day of School!

We are very excited to have the students back at school. There is so much energy on campus, and the students are already diving into projects. This year, while we continue to focus on developing knowledge and goodness, we will have an added emphasis of building a culture of kindness. The entire school will assemble with faculty and staff later today to join together and look forward to our common goals in the 2017-18 school year. Welcome back everyone!

The Faculty Are Back

While our students are enjoying the waning days of summer, the MTS faculty and staff are back at school.  Here are a few highlights of our work this week:

  • Training in Toolbox, one of the social emotional learning programs that we are doing K-3.

  • Teacher check-ins with our lower school literacy coach guiding us as we implement the Readers and Writers Workshop programs.

  • Responsive Classroom and Advisory faculty planning times.

  • CPR training.

  • A team-building scavenger hunt around Tiburon.

  • A failed viewing of the eclipse.

While we are enjoying the time to prepare our classrooms and programs, we are all eager to welcome students and families back to school next year!
