"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words of thanks giving, but to live by them."
-- John F. Kennedy

This Past October:

October has come and gone, but before we all start getting ready for Thanksgiving, we must remember how fun it was to finally pull out our sweaters, collect leaves, and carve pumpkins. Ms. Khataw's class took a trip down the Amazon River as they learned about South America. Ms. Denise's class talked about spiders and their webs, while Ms. Sunita's class had an exciting unit on the human skeleton. Ms. Sharika's class constructed a rainforest as they learned about animal homes. Ms. Erin's class studied pumpkins, and Ms. Malini's class has been learning all about delicious vegetables. Finally, the highlight of the month was the Halloween Party. All of the costumes were wonderful!

Upcoming November Events:

Thanksgiving Lunch - Tuesday, November 20th

The day before we all break for the Thanksgiving holiday, the teachers of Northwest Montessori will prepare a Thanksgiving feast for all of our students. We will fill up on turkey, corn, mashed potatoes and pie, and learn what it means to truly give thanks for all that we have.

Why the Montessori Method?


All Montessori life is rooted in choice and the need to teach our children how to make wise choices. The challenge for parents and teachers alike is to allow children to make those choices - and let them live with the consequences and rewards of their actions. Our role as educators is to provide an environment that is safe, accepting, and encouraging where children can discover the confidence to make the right choices on their own.
