NO MORE LYSOL PLEASE!

From now on we are requesting that LYSOL SPRAY not be sent into the classrooms and that parents choose alternatives  such as Seventh Generation, Mrs. Meyer’s or Ecover, as well as others which are safer choices for the students and staff. Since requesting Lysol spray on supply lists, it has come to our attention that the spray contains some dangerous chemicals which can be particularly harmful to asthmatics and those with respiratory issues. Click this link for further details: Dangers of Lysol spray, ehow If you have purchased Lysol for your child’s classroom, still have the receipt and are willing to return it for another safer option that would be very helpful. If not, please choose the healthier options when purchasing next time. We thank you for helping us to keep your children safe and healthy! 

A Letter to our CRMA Community

 Although this letter was written by the Principal of an unknown Elementary School, Ms. Golden, Ms. King, the Faculty and Staff of CRMA feel the same way and would like to share the following with you.

“We are concerned that these tests do not always assess all of what it is that make each of you special and unique. The people who create these tests and score them do not know each of you– the way your teachers do, the way I hope to, and certainly not the way your families do. They do not know that many of you speak two languages. They do not know that you can play a musical instrument or that you can dance or paint a picture. They do not know that your friends count on you to be there for them or that your laughter can brighten the dreariest day. They do not know that you write poetry or songs, play or participate in sports, wonder about the future, or that sometimes you take care of your little brother or sister after school. They do not know that you have traveled to a really neat place or that you know how to tell a great story or that you really love spending time with special family members and friends. They do not know that you can be trustworthy, kind or thoughtful, and that you try, every day, to be your very best… the scores you get will tell you something, but they will not tell you everything. There are many ways of being smart.”

We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child’s spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life.” –Maria Montessori
