While Children's House was learning about the life cycles of animals, they got an immersive three-week experience watching caterpillars turn into butterflies. What started out as 5 tiny caterpillars, soon became chrysalis' nearly ten times their original size! The students patiently waited for butterflies to emerge from the chrysalis. Once emerged, the students were responsible for feeding the Painted Lady butterflies sugar water for a few days before releasing them outside.

Children's House was so excited about their butterflies that they even got to share them with our younger friends at the Child Development Center next door. What a special experience to share! ๐Ÿ˜„


As the end of the school year approaches, we are so excited to announce our Moving Up/Graduation Ceremony on Wednesday, May 24th, 2023 @ 10:00am. ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽ“ If you are interested in attending, please reach out to us for your tickets! ๐ŸŽŸ

โœจ Yoga Tuesday โœจ

Maria Montessori saw each child as a unique individual, who developed at their own rate, and believed in educating the whole child, with movement paramount to the education of the mind. โ€œMovement, or physical activity, is thus an essential factor in intellectual growth, which depends upon the impressions received from outside,โ€ she wrote in Discovery of the Child. โ€œThrough movement we come in contact with external reality, and it is through these contacts that we eventually acquire even abstract ideas."

Yoga, like Montessori education, is a process of discovery. A mindful, non-competitive exercise, emphasizing movement and breathing and the connection of body and mind, it helps students of any age to understand our own nature and live harmoniously with others.

The Foster Grandparent Program engages community members 55 years and older in volunteer service as they provide one-on-one support to school age children. Throughout their volunteering, they help students improve academically, socially, and with emotional development.

We are lucky enough to have six incredible Foster Grandparents in our school. Our students, teachers, families, and staff appreciate the commitment and hard work each Foster Grandparent shows every day. Thank you, Grandma Brenda, Grandma Fay, Abuela Maria, Grandma Nelsa, Grandpa Charles, and Grandma Lillie for your continued dedication to the students at the Whitney M. Young Academy! ๐Ÿ’—
