A Welcome Letter from Cheryl and Ellie

Dear Salal Parents,

My name is Cheryl Dauber and I am excited to introduce myself as the Salal classroom teacher for the 2021-22 school year. I furloughed last year. I have been part of MCS for 25 years. My 20 year old daughter is an MCS alumni. Although I have been doing this a while, the excitement for starting a new year never diminishes. I look forward to sharing this special age with you and your children. To be a guide (teacher) for children ages 3-6 is an honor unparalleled to any other profession and my calling.


Ellie and I will keep much of the material and layout the same, as it works beautifully, and returning students will be greeted with familiarity and warmth. We want to provide a normalized classroom through play, work, and socialization, all while maintaining safety for all who enter.
We are bursting with energy and excitement to the classroom. Ellie and I will work diligently to provide your children with an enriching environment to learn and to grow. We look forward to making memories with you and your children. If you would like to reach us, please feel free to email us at cheryl.dauber@mcsbi.org and ellie.montaperto@mcsbi.org, or call the office anytime. We will return your calls outside of instruction time.
Our Salal Back To School Night is scheduled for Wednesday, September 1st at 6 PM via Zoom.


Cheryl and Ellie
