“In the child is much knowledge, much wisdom. If we do not profit from it, it is only because of neglect on our part to become humble and to see the wonder of this soul and learn what the child can teach.” - Maria Montessori, The Theosophist

Practical life skills are of great interest to young children and form the basis of later abstract learning. These activities help toddlers and preschool-age children learn to work independently, develop concentration, and prepare for later work with reading and math.

Last week our MPA Student Council hosted Spirit Week for all Elementary and Middle School students! It was a huge success and so fun to come together and show some school spirit! This coincided with our annual Walkathon, which was a spectacular and fun event for the children to participate in. Thank you for all your support, costume-planning, and participation! Our themes this year were:
1. Jersey Day
2. Superhero Day
3. Book Character Day
4. Decades Day
5. Pirate Day
We hope to continue this new tradition on next year and thanks to our Student Council for their leadership!
