Grace Changes Everything

Our theme this year is "Grace changes everything". Grace is the exercise of love, kindness, compassion, mercy, favor as well as the disposition to benefit or serve others.

We will start the school year by teaching grace and courtesy to the children. We know that grace and courtesy lessons help children become oriented to the prepared environment (classrooms).

Montessori schools prepare children to become citizens of the world and it begins with grace and courtesy in their own environments at home and school.

"If we are to teach real peace in this world... we shall have to begin with the children." —Mahatma Gandhi
