Happy Autumn Greetings Shaw Community!


We have a few new additions to our outdoor learning labs at Shaw!


A former alumnus who was working on his final eagle scout project built and donated two “Little Libraries.” One was gifted to Faith North, the other to Shaw Montessori. When the children return, they will find our new little free library in front of our media center. Here they can find new books to take or they can donate books they no longer want. Thank you George for your thoughtful act of kindness –from one Montessori kid to a bunch of others!


The Shaw Montessori hens found a new home this summer and the coop is being “remodeled” as we await the return of the children to adopt our next chicken friends. A special thank you to Dave and Stacie Ricks for their vision, work and preparation of our outdoor spaces.


A few new interesting Montessori in the home videos have been added to by Rising Tide Montessori that you may be interested in:

Make a Difference Day


Saturday, October 24, 2020 is this year’s Make a Difference Day. It is a national day of helping others and spreading kindness. It is never too early to teach your children how to take care of their community, give back and brighten someone’s day.


Times are challenging but together we will get through. This is a great time to feel empowered by doing something for someone else. The time for change is now! Be a part of the change to make the world a better place. Not only will the other person benefit, but you will feel good as well!


Here are a few ideas:


1. Hold the door for someone

2. Go through your toys and donate what you no longer use

3. Pick up trash on your street

4. Pay for coffee for the person behind you at the drive-thru

5. Help an elderly neighbor with yard work

6. Clean up the local park

7. Hold a food drive and donate to the local food bank

8. Draw pictures and write notes for the elderly, essential workers, or military personnel

9. Build a little free library where people can exchange books at no charge


Please feel free to share pictures of how you celebrated Make a Difference Day with Patricia.Karnes@phxschools.org for the next See Shaw Shine.


Remember, every kind act can start a ripple effect and make someone’s day. No act of kindness is too small. Let’s all make a difference!
