Spring Fever

It's officially Spring and the weather is FINALLY starting to cooperate. MAP testing is complete and Parent/Teacher Conferences are wrapping up this week. Lower El is preparing for their play in a few weeks and High School is practicing for Guys and Dolls. 8th Graders are working on their end of the year projects and Upper El is preparing for a trip to Charleston. Risers in Primary are preparing for their first experience at Flag Ceremony and our Infants and Toddlers are continuing to grow before our eyes. Before we know it, the year will be over and we will begin looking forward to our next school year as we transition our students into the next level. This is a busy season at MSA and we hope to see you at the many events that are coming up in the coming months.

Please enjoy all of the pictures of the many happenings across campus this week!

Algebra I Experiment

MSA Athletics

Sean has finished in the top third in the 100 & 200 m dashes the past two weekends and secured a 5th place finish in the MS 110 hurdles two weekends ago. Carter set a PR in the 1600 m race with a time of 6:17 on Saturday. Carter & Jack both did the long jump for the first time this past weekend.

National Nutrition Month

Students in middle school and high school participated in cooking challenges this month to celebrate national nutrition month. High school students prepared quick & on the go breakfast items while middle school students focused on after school snacks under 200 calories.

Water Initiative

Every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease and 1/3 of all schools lack access to safe water and adequate sanitation. Children are often responsible for collecting water to help their families, taking time away from school and play. Access to safe water and sanitation changes this. Reductions in time spent collecting water have been found to increase school attendance.

Montessori School of Anderson's first water initiative has successfully raised $790. We want to thank each and everyone of you who donated to this cause. In addition to raising money, upper school students participated in a 7 minute shower challenge. Younger students were encouraged to participate by remembering to turn the tap off while brushing their teeth. Water is a basic necessaity and your donation allows little kids to go to schools and work toward a better future.

Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, is a non-profit organization that has been pioneering market-driven financial solutions to the global water crisis for more than 25 years, giving women hope, children health and communities a future.
