End of the Year

It is hard to believe we are headed into the last week of school. It is also an extremely busy week ahead. There will be CPR class, Self-Defense class, Lower Elementary Peace Ceremony, Piping up, Promotion, Graduation and so much more. It is is amazing how in one week we can wrap up an entire year and celebrate the many accomplishments of all of our students. If you have kept up with Montessori Matters, you know of the many wonderful things that happened this school year. We have had great adventures, amazing performances, academic achievements and athletic accomplishments. We truly have amazing students, families and faculty and staff at MSA. As we slide in to Summer, we hope you all have a great time together and we look forward to hearing all about it this Fall!

Guys and Dolls

For some of the members of this cast, it was the last time they would shine on the stage or behind the scenes; and boy did they shine! Once again, Mrs. Nickles took a group of students and turned this production into something magical. From the flawless set, to the jaw dropping costumes and everything in between, this production was one of MSA's best.


While we all know the true magic of Mary Nickles and what she does with her students, there is a huge crew "behind the scenes" that help Mary throughout the year. Thank you to all of the faculty and staff, parents, and community members who have volunteered countless hours to make sure the performances go off without a hitch. It truly takes a team!


Thank you for all of the productions this year Mrs. Nickles! You constantly keep us entertained!

Community Service in a Community Garden

As their last service project of the year, Upper El students spent a morning working in a community garden. They used their gardening skills (from our wonderful horticulture program) to prepare vegetable beds, remove debris, and plant seeds and seedlings. This garden is being established as a grassroots effort to serve a neighborhood near downtown Anderson. What a great way for our students to use their gardening skills (and energy and enthusiasm) to serve our community!

Montessori School of Anderson
