Northwest Montessori Office Newsletter

September 2009

"Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future."
-- Maria Montessori


We warmly welcome all of our new students and parents to the Northwest Montessori family and congratulations to all of our students who have moved up. We look forward to being part of your children's learning and growing.

Of course we miss all our kids who have moved on to elementary school this year but we know they will carry all the lessons and fond memories they gathered at Northwest Montessori out into the world.
