This is Principal Eatman’s weekly communication to the school community.  The purpose is to keep you abreast of the events that are happening at CHM@L to meet my goal of improving communication with all stakeholders.
Vision –We envision our school as a caring community where all students reach their fullest potential in preparation for becoming productive members of society.

Mission –Our mission is to educate the whole child for a whole world through the use of the Montessori philosophy and materials.  Our concept of whole child encompasses and celebrates the social, emotional, physical, spiritual (non religious), and intellectual aspects of being human.

Instructional Vision –The instructional vision of CHM@L is to deliver rigorous authentic Montessori instruction that is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and meets the social, emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual needs of all students.

Instructional Priorities – Montessori pedagogy, Evidence Based Writing and questioning, Response to Intervention (RTI).
