Montessori Moment

Maria Montessori said:
“Adults work to finish a task, but the child works in order to grow and is working to create the adult, the person that is to be.” 

Alexa Whyte, MSBG seventh grader, received the "Positive Start" award from the Bowling Green Exchange Club. 

This award is given to seventh and eighth grade students who have reached out to make a difference in their community. 

She received her award at a ceremony earlier this week.

Alexa was honored for her efforts to create a children's book that she will share with younger students at MSBG to help them understand the importance of kindness to animals.  This project is Alexa's individual service project for the year, part of the Middle School's goal to match students' strengths with community needs.
