  • 8th Grade Community Project Symposium- all are welcome!

    May 22, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
    Summit Room

    All are welcome to join us next Tuesday, May 22nd, from 8:45-10:00 am for the 8th Grade Community Project Symposium in the Summit Room. The community project focuses on community and service, encouraging students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in the community. The community project gives students an opportunity to develop awareness of needs in various communities and address those needs through service learning. As a consolidation of learning, work on the community project engages students in a sustained, in-depth inquiry leading to service as action in the community. Community projects are student-centered and they enable students to engage in practical explorations through a cycle of inquiry, action and reflection. They help students to develop the attributes of the IB learner profile, provide students with an essential opportunity to demonstrate “approaches to learning” (ATL) skills developed through the IB Middle Years Program, and foster the development of independent, lifelong learners. Our students have worked on their projects since the beginning of the year, and they are eager to share their projects with the community. We hope you can come and see what they have accomplished!

Tales & Tunes from Mt. Olympus

Written by Alex Mitnick

Upper Elementary Performs Brand New Musical

The Upper Elementary students performed a brand new musical written by Mr. Mitnick! “Tales and Tunes From Mount Olympus” is a fun and exciting musical introduction to Greek Mythology. We meet Olympic gods and goddesses and explore some of the most famous myths including Pandora’s Box, Sisyphus and the Stone, and The Flight of Icarus. Learning about the different personalities of each deity and the moral of each story, we are both inspired and warned accordingly about some of life’s little secrets, allowing us to become more mindful of the many powerful psychological forces that exist inside of each of us.

The musical is a wonderful experience for the students, enriching their public speaking skills and self-confidence. It is not only an immersion in the arts, but a chance to collaborate, try new things, and practice teamwork. Preparation for tonight began many weeks ago. The students have been very busy memorizing, singing, dancing and enjoying the process that brought them to this evening.

As the saying goes, it takes a village, and the Montessori community joins in to support the process and the musical performance. It is an annual event that everyone looks forward to. The Middle School students are responsible for backstage management including hair, makeup, lighting, costumes and props, and the Lower Elementary students kick-off the evening with their songs.

Special thanks to Mr. Mitnick, who wrote and directed this brand new musical; Mr. Silva, who choreographed the dances as well as designed the beautiful costumes and set; Ms. Miller, who provided keyboard accompaniment; and the Upper Elementary teachers who continue to inspire and support the students every single day.

Many thanks to Lisa Meisenbacher who took the photos for the slideshow below.
