Montessori Moment

If you have a Montessori child, chances are you've had a couple of interesting conversations trying to describe how Montessori works before. It can be a difficult undertaking! Because of this, a couple of self-proclaimed "Montessori Madmen" hosted an Montessori Elevator Speech Contest last year. This is the prize-winning entry - and you can see more entries on the same youtube channel. What do you think? If you had a minute or less, is there anything else you'd say?


HERE are the minutes from the March meeting. 
We are starting to prepare for Game Night on April 17! 

Last chance to get fundraiser orders in! Extra catalogs and forms are on the table in the foyer. ALSO: please turn in any unused Tupperware catalogs and forms. Jann can use them again!
