What Fun!

Thanks SO much to all who contributed to making last Sunday’s 3rd Annual Family Fun Run & Road Race such a great success! From our host – SNHU – to our partners and sponsors, to our day-of- crew, and of course to our over 100 runners, we send a resounding thank you! The event raised well over $4000 in support of our public Montessori school, in large part because of our many sponsors and partners (celebrated on our race day t-shirts). It takes a village to pull off an event like this, and we are so lucky to have the love and support of so many!

There are many to acknowledge (and we do so below), but please first join us in sending a HUGE thank you to MFCS Parent, Amanda Gerardi, to first dream up this event a few years back, and then work tirelessly, attending to every details, large and small year after year! We gathered at SNHU’s beautiful new stadium for under a bright blue sky, to enjoy this great outdoor and healthy event. MFCS Parents and student athletes from the University stood side-by-side, engaging and encouraging our kiddos. The University’s generous donation of breakfast and snacks were also much appreciated!

This week a group of 4th Year Students headed to Concord for the annual Delta Dental Student Leadership Summit which is hosted by NH Board of Education Chair, Tom Raffio and organized by John Jay Bonstingl of Bonstingl Leaders for the Future. This Summit is comprised of a small selection of students from New Hampshire schools and and is an activity-oriented summit of fun. Students spend the majority of their time working together to learn and develop leadership skills to be used within our school and hopefully in our community. Special thanks to Ms. Sherry who accompanied our students this year on this engaging 2-day leadership development adventure.
