    This year, Montessori Community School particpated in a service learning opportunity that touched the lives of many by supporting a local charity.      This year, after looking into many areas of need in our community, we participated  in  the   Fill- the- Pack  Project created by  the  Homeless Youth Resource Center. This relatively new program provides a way to get some basic survival necessities (toothbrushes, toiletries, hats, gloves, and blankets are just a few of  the  items in  the   packs ) to teens that are living on  the  streets of Salt Lake City.     MCS provided two backpacks for each of our classrooms to  fill  with items from  the  Homeless Youth Resource Center needs list.There was such a wonderful response from our students and families! We were able to fill and deliver 24 backpacks plus many other various items that were brought in and donated. Imagining...

Service-Learning



An Early Child student is read to by a Lower Elementary student. “If salvation and help are to come, it is from the child, for the child is the constructor of man and so of society. The child is endowed with an inner power which can guide us to a more enlightened future.” – Maria Montessori Service-Learning is built into a Montessori Education’s curriculum starting at the toddler age through adolescence.

b2ap3_thumbnail_P1020431.JPG
ATTENTION MCS PARENTS FUN-RUN Wednesday, May 7th Please find your child's Fun-Run Pledge Envelope in their take-home file.  The purpose of the Fun Run is to raise funds for our two special Navajo grandmothers, Emma and Elvira, as well as our seven students from Ethiopia. Both of these programs are close to our hearts as we have seen the enormous difference our time and efforts can make for those involved in the programs. This week the students at MCS are learning more about both programs.  The Pledge Envelopes include instructions on collecting funds for the Fun Run. We are still looking for some parent volunteers and invite you to sign up in the office to assist on May 7th. Our goal for this year is to raise at least $6500.  As we have 219 students enrolled at this time this means that if each child could aim to raise $30 we...
