A Message From Our Head Of School


Dear Families, 

Welcome to the 2023/24 school year!

Back to school season is one of my favorite times of the year. The stores are stocked with supplies, teachers are decorating their classrooms, and families are soaking up the last few precious moments of summer. As we gear up for a year full of learning, we want to emphasize that we are a school family that is committed to great academics and personal growth for each student.  The team at Macomb Montessori Academy is full of dedicated and dynamic teachers, support staff, paraprofessionals, custodians, food service workers and administrative staff who all work with students to achieve high academic and social standards. Together, we grow through challenges and celebrate our accomplishments. 

Every year, our families and staff become a united team with common goals and are dedicated to providing a safe community.  Attendance and working with your child’s classroom teacher is critical this year. Each student will receive a BLUE communication folder that will be sent home the first week of school. Parents are expected to check the folder regularly for school communication.
