School Spirit Day & Earth Day

By April 12, 2023April 14th, 2023Uncategorized

School Spirit Days are joyous celebrations of our school community

Primary through Middle School children gathered together to celebrate School Spirit Day and Earth Day! Mrs. VonWachenfeldt and Mr. Mitnick hosted the event. This year our Spirit Days are all about “Ripples”, and what we mean when we talk about a “ripple effect”. How can we make a difference and create ripples to be a positive force/influence on those around us through words, deeds, actions, and ideas? 

Mrs. Von talked about the ripple effect we can make when we do our part to take care of the environment. With this beautiful spring weather and Earth Day coming up, it’s a great time of year to appreciate all of the wonderful gifts nature gives us and remember to help keep it a beautiful place to be!

Everyone watched a video put together by the Princeton Montessori Eco Team, a group of Middle School students, supported by Mr. Juleff and other staff. The Eco Team’s purpose is to develop ideas and solutions in order to make Princeton Montessori more sustainable and environmentally friendly. The Eco team issued a “Zero Waste Challenge” for April 21st.


Next, Mrs. Von read the book, The Curious Garden, by Peter Brown. It is the story of one boy’s quest for a greener world… one garden at a time. After the story, Mrs. Cotton, Mrs. VonWachenfeldt, and piano teacher Ms. Miller performed a song called “The Curious Garden” while the 3rd Year Primary students did the hand motions. The students made their own paper garden with the upcycled flowers they created.

Rock Band closed out Spirit Day with a performance of “Big Yellow Taxi”
