🦉🐝What a month! Thanks to the amazing students and teachers at The Montessori School of the Mahoning Valley for having us out. It was a pleasure to see the kids having fun while learning about nature. 🐝🦉

We did a four week series on owls and honey bees.

-The kids got to become honey bees and pollinate flowers using electrostatic attraction.
-They deconstructed lilies to learn the parts of a flower involved in pollination.
-We built a colony having the kids do the different jobs of the queen, worker bees and drones.
-They also got a chance to dissect owl pellets and reconstruct the skeletons of prey animals to see what owls eat.
-A big thank you to Birds in Flight Sanctuary for bringing out a live barred owl. They will never forget it!

Eagle Project Brings Gaga Pit to MSMV

Students at The Montessori School of the Mahoning Valley are enjoying the warm weather in their long-awaited Gaga Pit!
Elementary and Adolescent students began asking for a Gaga pit to be added to the school’s campus last year. They were thrilled to find that their dreams were becoming reality with the help of a local Scouts troop!
The Gaga pit was planned, built, and installed by Todd Johnston of Scouts BSA Troop 9054. Johnston is working toward his Eagle award and chose MSMV as the recipient of his community project.
The wooden enclosure, or ‘pit,’ is located in the back yard of Cart House, and provides a place for MSMV’s students to play Gaga Ball, a game similar to dodgeball. Players use their hands to hit the ball toward their opponents, who run, jump, or otherwise dodge the ball in an effort to be the last one standing. Players are eliminated if they’re hit below the knee by the ball.
This is the second Eagle award project to benefit MSMV. Last year, MSMV alumnus Colin Kirkpatrick constructed wooden stairs leading into part of the school’s wooded trails.

Is the board still meeting?

Is it via zoom and can people pop in if they have things to bring up?

If not can the minutes be shared since we cannot really go to school to access them.

*Wouldn't let me tag the entire board.
Congratulations to...

Bobby Seifert!!!

Happy !

In Montessori classrooms, children learn at an early age that they are global citizens; members of their family and classroom, citizens of their city and state, and part of a cosmic community that encompasses so much more. They learn to care for themselves, their neighbor, and their environment. As Dr. Montessori said, "Establishing lasting peace is the work of education."

On this day of giving, we ask that you thoughtfully consider a donation to MSMV, which directly supports these future peacemakers.

Your generosity helps us continue to provide a Montessori education in a beautiful and safe learning environment, where children can become the best version of themselves.

As we approach a season that's typically full of shared meals and gathering with loved ones, keep in mind all the ways your children (even the littles!) can help! Practical life skills are a staple in the Montessori classroom. Montessori kids can help with cooking, chopping, measuring, cleaning, decorating, setting the table, and so much more!

Throwback and Alumni Spotlight!

This wonderful photo was sent to us by the parent of two alumni students who attended MSMV many years ago! This photo was taken in 1983 when the school was located in the Unitarian Church in Youngstown. Pictured in the top right (in the purple shirt) is the school’s founder, Suzanne Stettler.

The photo was submitted by Jack Wendle, father of MSMV alums John and Abigail Wendle. John is pictured in this photo, and Abigail began attending several years later.

John and Abigail are both graduates of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. Abigail is a journalist for NPR, and John has been featured in several publications such as Time, National Geographic, and The Wall Street Journal. He spent 5 years reporting in Afghanistan and 4 in Ukraine, and currently lives in Senegal.

We love getting updates about the fantastic things our alumni are doing all over the world! If you have an alumni update or story to share, please let us know.

Thank you to the Wendle Family for sharing this piece of MSMV history with us!

“An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking;” - Dr. Maria Montessori

Today, many of our students celebrated the International Day of Peace with their classmates and teachers. Some shared songs and books, others worked together on lessons. Upper Elementary students delivered Peace Flowers to our campus neighbors.

In Montessori classrooms, children learn that they are not only citizens of their classroom and community, but of the world. Their work each day helps them learn to embody a spirit of peace and compassion, and live into their role as global citizens who care for themselves and their neighbors, near and far.

We wish you peace! 💚💙☮️🕊

- The Great Lessons

In the Elementary classrooms, learning is not defined by a limited, single-year curriculum - it is driven as far as your child’s imagination will take them. Dr. Montessori understood the power of a child’s mind, and designed a series of “Great Lessons” which ignite imagination and stimulate inquiry throughout the academic program. The Great Lessons begin with “The Birth of the Universe” - an elaborate story told by the teacher with artwork and science experiments - which includes chemistry, physics, astronomy, earth science, and geography. This lesson inspires students’ imaginations, and becomes the jumping off point for independent exploration of these subjects.

These Lower Elementary students are experiencing the first Great Lesson, and drawing their interpretation of light coming from the darkness.

A Montessori Moment...

In the Primary Classroom, Practical Life lessons include things like buttoning, sweeping, and pouring. At the Adolescent level, sometimes practical life means hanging bulletin boards and coat racks to improve the functionality of their space!

Before we wrapped up the school year, our Adolescent students spent 3 days learning, working, and having fun at the Villa Maria Farm! We're so fortunate to have such a wonderful resource in our community. Our students and teachers had a wonderful time, and we always love when our students have opportunities to learn valuable, practical life skills and help in our community at the same time!

In a Montessori Classroom, a child may place their hand on the arm or shoulder of an adult or friend to indicate that they’d like their attention, without interrupting. This is a wonderful display of grace and courtesy. It’s a lesson in patience for the waiting child, but offers reassurance their needs will be met. This wonderful practice is easy to incorporate at home, too!

MSMV is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year. Contact us today to schedule a visit!

We are so fortunate to be surrounded by nature and able to spend time learning and exploring each day!

Earlier this week, Upper El students conducted a water study with guidance from Wild You and learned about the water in our creek and the wildlife living in it.

Upper El has been enjoying visits from Wild You this year and learning so much about our environment!
