Service & Celebrations!
It was an abbreviated week that included a holiday and a weather delay.. The days we were here together, were jam-packed! Some of the highlights from the week include a visit by our 6th Year Students to the NH Food Bank; more scientific exploration by our Lower Elementary Students; and ongoing work by our Kinder students as part of the All-School European Continent Student. That study will culminate in student presentations next Thursday which you are invited to attend. Please click here to learn more about the celebration event.

An important part of the Montessori philosophy is helping children discover how they can make the world a better place. The Montessori Service Learning Curriculum is an important component of the 6th Year experience at Mill Falls. The students’ service work provides opportunities for hard work, cultural awareness, connection to community and a growing sense of empathy. 

Earlier in the year, the current 6th Year Students discussed projects they wanted to take on as part of their Service Learning Program. Led by Ms. Laura B, the students identified the Food Bank as a service partner, and took their first trip over there to share their strength with the warehouse team. Ms. Laura B. and  students walked over to the Food Bank, took a brief tour of the facility, and then got to work packaging potatoes into bags which will be handed out over the weekend to food-insecure families. 6th Year Student, Marissa, shared that “It felt great to help people, especially knowing that families who need food will be in on Saturday to pick up the food we sorted.” This was just one of the many activities and projects the Students will work on between now and June.
