Montessori Grace and Courtesy
As we’re sandwiched between Martin Luther King Day and the Inauguration, the importance of thinking globally and acting locally is clear. For our children, the values they learn come from the behaviors they see around them—not from blogs and tweets.
We have such an opportunity to inspire our children with the dream of a kind and inclusive society.
Last week’s newsletter included an entry about the Montessori approach to teaching grace and courtesy. While we may dismiss these lessons as less important than the teaching of reading and math, it is worthwhile remembering that civilization is rooted in civility.
Thank you for your continued support making Evergreen a safe haven for our children.
John DeMarchi, Head of School
