Kinder study project about NH, specifically black bear.
What a wonderful morning we had here at school. Thanks SO very much to all the families and friends who joined us for an exploration of the work created during the All-School Study of North America! 

Students created dioramas, brochures, board games and more!  The children were so excited to share their work with our visitors and later in the morning, they moved room-to-room to view the projects in each classroom. 

Congrats to all of our hard-working students who employed their imaginations and great senses of humor and adventure in their study of North America. As always, a special shout out to our amazing teaching staff who gently guide our students toward success!  Please enjoy some pictures from today in our Montessori in Motion section down below.

Thanks to so many of you for the wonderful donations of healthy food you have been bringing to school. Susanne has been able to distribute the fantastic variety of items to our food-insecure families, bringing smiles and an extra skip in the steps of the those kiddos as they head home, backpacks filled with food delivered with your love and support!

Thanks to all who have so generously donated gently worn coats of all sizes and colors. If you have anything you'd like to have included in the coat drive, but haven't yet, please be sure to bring it to school  by Monday !
