MMS celebrates Montessori Education Week 2018

MMS is joining with schools around the world in celebrating the child-centered approach to education that has been transforming lives for more than a century during Montessori Education Week February 25-March 3.


We’ll be highlighting Montessori education and our school through media outreach and social media platforms and organizing special events and ongoing activities for our school community in the week ahead.


Please mark your calendars for the dates below:


  • “Ask Jennifer,” Thursday, March 1, 8:15-9:30 a.m., at the Middle School (804 Myrtle Road – Unity Church). In honor of Montessori Education Week, Director Jennifer Carriger will host a special coffee for parents. This is a wonderful opportunity to have your questions about Montessori education, what’s happening in our classrooms and/or school operations addressed.


  • “M” shirt day, Friday, March 2. Everyone is encouraged to show their Montessori spirit by wearing M gear to school.


  • “The thing I like best about Mountaineer Montessori is…” Students, parents, alumni and our community are invited to share what makes MMS special to them via social media posts (starting next week) and fun art sheets that will be distributed at school. You and your child can get started now by completing the attached form. Responses will be posted throughout our hallways! MMS Education Week Art
