RSVP TO EMILY CAPECE BY NOVEMBER 9:

This marks a new tradition for MMS sixth year students, who participate in special projects and enjoy special privileges as they transition from elementary to middle school.

Starting this spring, sixth years will participate in the Montessori Model UN program in New York.
About the Montessori Model United Nations:
Maria Montessori supported the work of the League of Nations and its successor the United Nations as a forum where peace could be created. She recognized the hope for peace lay in the education of children.
Montessori Model United Nations has partnered with the United Nations to create a program for Montessori students who at the sensitive period for reason, justice and morality can participate in a life changing experience.
The Montessori Model United Nations program culminates classroom or after school study with a two day global education simulation experience at the United Nations that enables students in upper elementary, and middle schools to learn about the operations of the United Nations and its role as the world’s largest international peacekeeping and humanitarian organization. In addition, like the high school and university Model United Nations Programs, MMUN provides students from 9-15 years of age an opportunity to:
- Learn about cultures, governments and peoples of nations throughout the world.
- Use research skills, writing skills and written & oral communications skills.
- Develop critical thinking skills, problem solving skills and evaluative skills.
- Debate current global issues and world problems.
- Practice and use leadership skills in a real life global situation.
- Understand the need for peace and conflict resolution throughout the world while developing their own conflict resolution and debating skills.
