We are a fortunate bunch. In a time where cuts are being made eliminating the arts from schools, MMS is putting on level wide musicals, working with salt dough to bring 2-dimensional figures into 3D, and decorating the walls with water color maps. As Montessorians we constantly seek ways to incorporate the use of our hands in the classroom, to tap into the strengths of each of our children; often this occurs through the arts. I am fortunate to be a part of a community that so greatly supports individuality, that scaffolds through to the next level, and celebrates successes along the way.
MMS is constantly looking to turn up the heat, and this year we hope to turn it up to four cones (that’s kiln talk). It's time to replace our kiln! This year we have the fantastic opportunity of running the New York Half Marathon as A 501(c)(3) nonprofit on March 15. MMS has compiled a team of elite runners (well maybe we are not all elite, but enthusiastic runners nonetheless). Each of the runners, as required by race regulations, has been charged with raising funds for MMS which will go towards the purchase, installation, and maintenance of a new kiln!
It is with joyful trepidation that I announce that I have been chosen to tread these 13.1 miles through the streets of New York representing this fabulous school community. By no means do I consider myself a natural runner and there are simply no two ways around it, this race will be a great challenge for me. Yet it is one that I embark on with great pride on behalf of the students of Metropolitan Montessori School and the new kiln that will support their growth. I would be honored if you would consider a donation of any size and appreciate your support.
