Montessori Moment

The Life and Times of Maria Montessori

Did you know a "higher power" played an integral role in Maria Montessori getting into medical school? Or that the first Montessori Training College in Italy was founded by a man who'd ultimately be reviled around the globe? Where was the term Cosmic Education born, or Maria Montessori for that matter? Learn about the life and times of Maria Montessori in this highly informative timeline. Where do you fit in?

This Monday the MSBG Chess club began the November matches with students from 5 other local schools.   In this first of four rounds, hosted by St. Aloysius, our players had great games against excellent competition, posting seven wins, with no draws, and no losses.  Participating in the first round were Erik Broman, Isaac Douglass, Marilyn Iott, William Iott, Jeremy Mahoney, Gabriel Skinner, and Cole Weaver.  Congratulations to all for a nice start, and good wishes for the next round, hosted by BG Christian Academy this coming Monday.


Thanks to all who joined us for our quarterly meeting this past week!
