At this social, emotional, and academic age of a fourth to sixth grader, the children were excited, focused, and very willing to sew up a chicken by making sutures. Children also were presented x-rays of the brain from various angles.  The questions the students asked were very indicative on how absorbed they were about their own brain and how it functions.

This was an enlightening presentation and we thank our parents for exposing the children to medicine.
It truly peaked many of the children’s interest.
We welcome our parents to come in and share your talents, and commitment to your professions!

Just before we head out to our winter break, the Polar Express made a stop in to take our students on a magical train ride!  Hosted by our sixth graders, the students first visited our 'station' where they were greeted and given their tickets!  Then after a short walk, they boarded our 'train', their tickets were stamped, and they were on their way!  During the trip they had a quick snack of hot cocoa and cookies!

Everyone had a wonderful time!

First through third graders had an experience of cold packing pickles today! Please put these in the refrigerator because they are cold packed. Please allow three days to pass for the pickling process to be complete before opening the jars again.

This project is part of the study of vegetables and how they grow. What parts of the vegetables do we eat? How people from other countries have similar vegetable dishes. This leads to introducing different seasons, what grows and when to plant and an introduction to different biomes.

The children really enjoyed this project!

This weekend volunteers are installing the many panels created by the community on the Andy Warhol Bridge in a new art concept called Yarn Bombing!  Montessori Centre Academy's students with the help of our art teacher Natalie Grandinetti created the panel showing on the far left! Kindergarten through sixth graders worked on this project throughout the year! What a great accomplishment to see it installed this week!
