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.

For the Autumn Bash Party : The boys dressed as caterpillars and the girls as butterflies
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.
The Giving Tree is in full bloom. On the tree are leaves with items that our teachers would love to share with your child in the classroom.

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.”
