Montessori Moment

The tour guide at the Recycling Center asked, "What is the shape of this recycled material?" Three hands shot up. A MSBG student answered, "A rectangular-based prism." This is what we love about Montessori Education.

Montessori wins 2012 GLCA Title

The Montessori School of Bowling Green won the GLCA Scholastic Chess Open this past Saturday at St. John's High School in Toledo.  Approximately 160 players from 40 elementary, junior high and high schools competed in the event.
Winning 17 out of 20 possible points, the Montessori Chess Club outpaced a very talented St. John's High School chess squad and edged out Ottawa Hills on tie-break points to become the 2012 champions of the Great Lakes Chess Association.  Winning for the Montessori were Drew Acus, Jared Bechstein, Isabelle Broman, Jaewoon Jung, Yeowoon Jung, Bryan Li, Jeremy Mahoney, Jesse Poiry, JJ Poiry, Jack Suelzer, Yelia Xu and Albert Yang.
With 4 players finishing in the "Top 5" of the K-2 section, the Montessori won the GLCA title for the 4th year in a row.  Bryan Li led the way with a perfect score winning 1st Place among K-2 individuals.  Other Montessori players winning 4 points each in various sections were: Isabelle Broman, Albert Yang, Jeremy Mahoney and Yeowoon Jung.  
As the current Ohio Primary Grade Chess Champions, the Montessori School of BG travels to Cincinnati on April 14th to defend their title and compete in several other sections. 
Congratulations to the Montessori Chess Team and GOOD LUCK at state!

Staff Spotlight

"Miss Mary" Cleland
Upper Elementary

Mary is an Education Aide in the Upper Elementary classroom. Mary holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and she completed her Montessori Certification in 2004.  She taught at MSBG for four years before she decided to stay home with her three young children, two of whom are now MSBG students. "I had the biggest A-HA moment in training when I learned how to demonstrate test-tube division. I think it's an amazing way to show children the process of long division. Another one of my favorite Montessori materials is using the geometric solids to calculate volume."           


Track and Field

It’s time for Track and Field again for the third season.  The Mustang Track & Field team is open to 1st – 6th grade students. The intention of each session will be to practice and improve on the following:  
Running events include:  50m, 100m, 200m, 400m and 800m as well as the 4 x 100m relay.
Field events include the following events: shot put; discus; javelin (foam); high jump (scissors) and long jump.
Each session will involve a different rotation of events for all the students to try.
Practices will start on Monday, April 9th. If we need to cancel due to weather, you will be informed via email by 12 pm. At the end of the practice we will give you more information about the program.
