We have an administrator coming from the Virgin Islands who would like a roommate. IF you do not already have a Hyatt reservation we can put you in email contact with her. Contact Margot at email@example.com.
Workshop #72 with Margaret Combs has been filled to capacity!
One of our workshops, #77 Learning through Curiosity with Christopher Lloyd was omitted from the original conference registration sheet. Check out the content of Chris’ workshop on the website and then choose accordingly.
There are folks arriving at the Tampa airport on Thursday who would like to ride share down to Sarasota. In order to do this, one person needs to make and pay for the reservation with services such as Supershuttle or even Uber. If you are willing to work this out I have the contact info of one of our attendees who’d like to ride share. Email me (Margot) and I will connect you to her via email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to an oversight we double booked Tracey Hall to do two workshops at once. While she’s quite talented, this proved to be a physical impossibility. So here is what we’ve done, #54. Is the Infant/Toddler material-making workshop. Since #16 on Friday had already been cancelled and there was no other Infant/Toddler workshop going on that session we’ve moved it to that slot.
You may either go on your own to that workshop or email me, email@example.com and let me know you are making the switch in your registration and I’ll update your sheet. Just do that prior to Monday, Oct 30th.
Thank you for your understanding.
On Thursday afternoon, while we are setting up, a private screening of Building the Pink Tower will be shown. This is a free event to our attendees. Building the Pink Tower (working title) is a documentary film project that aims to reframe the national education conversation around creating learning environments that support children achieving their full potential. We want to expand this conversation to include the proven, developmental and child-centered practices of Montessori education because ALL children, regardless of background and learning style, deserve the opportunity to flourish in learning and in life.

Yes, John Ringling … of circus fame!
There’s an old legend circulating around Sarasota that John Ringling had a Native American guide show him around the Sarasota area to assure him that the area was on a protected cove safe from the weather that can sometimes plague our sunshine state. Seems he knew of what he spoke. Our beautiful Sarasota was minimally impacted by the devastating blow Hurricane Irma just delivered.
Our host hotel, the Hyatt on Sarasota Bay was also spared and our little SRQ airport opened up for business ahead of others in the region!
