In this Issue: 


Montessori Moment

Dr. Montessori said that â€œThe child should live in an environment of beauty.” Certainly our grounds offer that. Scientific exploration and appreciation of the natural world are tenants of Montessori philosophy. To read more, click HERE.

Fall Adult Social

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the Brewfest! This event is a great way for parents, staff and families to get to know each other as well as a great way to raise several thousand dollars to benefit our non profit school! Special thanks to Downey Orthodontics, Ben and Kristin Otley, Campus Quarters as well as all our donors and volunteers!

Cross Country News

With the official close of the cross country season for the Middle School come reflections of the season, and oh what a season!   They have come to truly understand what "hurts so good" means! Comfort zone?  What comfort zone-  they run over the hills at Maumee Bay at the Cardinal Stritch Invitational, and over hills at the Fostoria Invitational, or do not forget hills AND creeks at Otsego. 
The learned:
  • physical development and exercise
  • what they are capable of pushing through
  • determination
  • personal goal setting
  • how to personally motivate themselves
  • how mental strategy and positive thinking change personal expectation
Thank you to Christie Poiry for coaching this group and all the hard work and dedication of the runners and their families!    


Join us tomorrow, Saturday, from 3:00-6:00pm, for pumpkins, scarecrows, and hay rides at Schooner Farms (14890 Otsego Pike—OH 6 at SR 235—in Weston). Bring your best pumpkin  creation for the decorated pumpkin contest and dress for the weather—it's an all-outdoor party. The rain date for this event is Sunday, Oct. 19, at 3:00. Celebrate autumn at the farm with your MSBG friends!

On Wednesday, Nov. 19, we will celebrate St. Martin's Day with a lantern-lit procession around the MSBG grounds followed by cookies and cocoa. This is an evening event (starting at 6:30) and all families are welcome. Save the date!

New Safety Addition

You may have noticed over the summer new school caution lights were installed on either approach to our entrance.  We’d like to thank the city of Bowling Green for this wonderful donation and for helping to keep our children and their families safe!

Happy Thoughts

The teachers had a great workday with Jan Kauffman who offered a workshop called, "Bringing our Best Selves." We want to send her our happy, appreciative thoughts as well as our teachers and students who will benefit from the workshop.

To our Upper Elementary students and teachers as they attend CAMP WILLSON this coming Monday-Wednesday. Special happy thoughts and thanks to our dads who are attending: Tim Schetter and Lars Cleland.
