Supporting students by providing remote lessons
Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentialities.
— Maria Montessori, Education for a New World
While SUIMA may be closed at this time due to the COVID-19 crisis, the staff is still hard at work. They are all supporting the students by providing remote lessons, doing Zoom meetings, making phone calls, sending home-learning packets home, and checking in with the parents. Everyone is adjusting to this new [temporary] normal.
In this time of uncertainty and fear of the unknown, enjoy your family. Get out a board game. Bake a delicious batch of cookies. Run some laps outside around your house. Throw a ball of frisbee in your yard. Dig a hole just for fun. Plant a garden. Climb a tree. Play hide-and-seek!
Thank you to the many people who make up the schools in our community: from the Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy, to the SUIT Education Center, and to the Ignacio School District – THANK YOU!
Thank you to those who are the first line of defense in this fight. To the staff who are manning the COVID checkpoints, to the First Responders and EMT’s at Los Pinos Fire and to the doctors and nurses who make up Ignacio Family Medicine and the SUIT Health Clinic.
We are all in this together and together, we will all come out stronger.
All events and activites are currently suspended until further notice.
