Montessori Moment

Marie Montessori:
Environmental Education

The Montessori philosophy is centered around the idea of authentic experiences in the environment -- in the classroom and outside -- and that children learn best by doing. With our exceptional grounds, and community-funded Land Lab, and Nature Trail, it's really important to share those experiences with as many people as possible. When we return from Spring Break, all students will start participating in growing seeds and plants for our Land Lab.

Community Earth Day
Celebration April 27

The culmination of all the events will be the Community Earth Day Celebration on April 27 at 2pm at our school! The event will feature activities from over 20 partners and will include: hands-on environmental learning activities, a children’s story time from the Wood County District Public Library, art activities, science experiments, raffles for door prizes and much more.  The event is free and everyone is welcome.
