It is with great pleasure and excitement that we nominate George Cheng as the Rising Star for The Norwood Montessori School. George is a first grade student who represents our three-core peace promises of our classroom by taking care of himself, all living things, and the environment.
This month our Kindergarten Rising Star is Jackson Kolkebeck. He is a shining example of a Pax Leader at The Norwood Montessori School, exemplifying our three school rules: taking care of ourselves, other living things, and the environment. Jackson is a hard worker, always eager to learn new things, and gets his work done every day. His classmates often look to him for a helping hand, as he's always supportive and kind, and an excellent teacher!
MONTESSORI EXPANSION IN NORWOOD
TERESE BOOTH, PRINCIPAL
As the 2022-2023 school year begins to wind down, it is with great pleasure to know that we have had a very successful first year of expanding Montessori education in our school district. This school year, we expanded our school from a Preschool only enrollment to include Kindergarten and First Grade. It has been amazing to watch all of our students grow, progress, and express themselves.
Our 2023-2024 expansion plan includes Preschool through 2nd Grade followed by an additional grade level each school year. Our long-term plan is to expand our Montessori School to Preschool through 5th Grade by the school year of 2026-2027.
KEY COMPONENTS OF MONTESSORI CLASSROOMS
Montessori classrooms include credentialed staff, multi-age students, hands on materials, choice, and self-pacing. Learning materials and the classroom environment have been carefully designed and prepared to foster a child’s curiosity and natural desire to learn.
