One of the many reasons I love Montessori is the heart that they instill in the children they help to educate. The Montessori Method is not just a curriculum, it’s a way of life. Below is an article that I found here. Read and enjoy:
ROCKFORD — Montessori students from Thurgood Marshall School and Maria Montessori School have raised nearly $10,000 to build a girls school in Kenya. A fundraiser was held in conjunction with Free the Children’s Brick by Brick initiative. Students made final contributions during a celebratory ribbon-cutting and Kenyan-culture ceremony Monday in the Marshall School Theater.
