Montessori Buzz – May 23, 2023
Dear MA Families & Friends,
Annie Jr.: That’s a wrap!
Wow, just wow. Thank you to the hard-working students and faculty who put together a truly magical musical performance this year! Families and friends of the school raved over the performances by our incredibly talented students.
One of our parents commented: “It’s evident how Montessori encourages and cultivates creativity, expression, and individuality in each of your students.”
This school is truly a special place that allows our students to flourish not only academically and socially, but creatively too. Our musical is proof of that.
Thank you to all of our MA-Zing sponsors! Thanks to your support, we were able to raise $3,250 to help towards the cost of renting the theatre, set design, rental equipment and other related costs. The show could not go on without you.
Thank you to our stars of our concession stand. Our Junior High Volunteers worked concessions during all three shows and raised a total of $1,900 for the Elementary Library project! Thank you to everyone who supported our concession booth! We hope you enjoyed the treats.
UE/JH track meet is May 29

Casa 1 JH Buddies visit
Casa 1 has been so fortunate to have Junior High students using their community service hours, helping in our classroom. It is amazing to watch these adolescents assist our young children with their work and with jobs in the classroom. Their empathy towards the younger children is remarkable. They get down to their level and change their tone to a gentler, inviting tone. It is exactly what Montessori knew, that younger children will look up to and try to emulate older children and older children will become empathetic through the trust of their interactions together.
LE1 Shark presentation
These students in Lower El 1 collaborated to research more than 20 types of sharks! They presented their findings on Thursday to their peers and some lucky staff and faculty who had the chance to sit in on the presentation.
Where in the World is Montessori?
Last week Alex and Michael toured the ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii. They also climbed Mount Vesuvius which was actively steaming! Below are pictures of the boys at the Temple of Apollo and Diana as well as the Palace of Justice at Pompeii.
