CLASS 204

Ms. Becky appreciates having her friends Kaelyn and Connor back in her class. Class 204 students really enjoyed their visit to Old MacDonald's Farm, the weather was great and the pumpkins plentiful.

CLASS 206

Class 206 were hard at work cleaning out the class pumpkin, and then friends showed their "scary face" while taking a photo with the class jack-o-lantern.

We all had a ”blast" learning about fire safety on our visit to the Porter Fire Department. We met "Sparky" the fire dog and enjoyed the tour of the fire truck.

We had lots of fun at the "Autumn Bash!” everyone had great costumes; Annabelle dressed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and Kohen as "Spryo" the Skylander.

CLASS 210

Class 210 Toddlers enjoyed; Pumpkins and Seeds

Trees, Fall Leaves, Animals that live on trees

The Color of the month was orange

Show and tell was every Wednesday

The Shape of the Month was a circle

For the Autumn Bash Party : The boys dressed as caterpillars and the girls as butterflies

CLASS 214/216

Elementary students worked hard on their Geography and Science studies in October. They created Landform and States of Matter posters and learned how to create celebrations of their own for Peace and Service.

For "Autumn Bash" they dressed in the national costumes of countries from Africa and the Middle East. They then shared a Delicious Feast with authentic food in Middle Eastern style, seated on the ground.

Students also had an exciting opportunity to view a Model T Ford outside the school. the owner talked about the history of his car; he cranked the engine and honked the horn, it was a real taste of history.

EXTENDED CARE

The students of extended care carved some really cool pumpkins. Each student used his or her creativity and personal style. The weather was just perfect to carve them outside in the playground.

Sending our staff to the AMS Conference in Dallas is one of our fundraising goals this year

2014 Annual Conference "Montessori: Unity in Diversity" AMS 2014 Annual Conference

March 27 – 30 - Hilton Anatole, Dallas, TX

Diversity lies at the heart of Montessori. After all, it was in working with children considered “defective” that Dr. Maria Montessori began to develop her revolutionary theories about education. All children, she discovered, can learn and thrive in a properly prepared learning environment. “The needs of mankind are universal,” she wrote. “Our means of meeting them create the richness and diversity of the planet.”
