From the Principal

Dear Parents,

As you know, Maria Montessori was a leader in peace. She believed in the important connection between education and peace.  She is universally known for her contribution to the cause of peace and it is through education the Montessori child learns to be a peaceful child. 

As Montessori parents, and educators, we realize that it is not enough to simply talk about peace.  We must create an environment that will promote the development of peaceful individuals.  To help us promote a peaceful environment we will be sharing with students a peacemaker promise that will be part of our peacemaker recognition assemblies. 


Mrs. Renee A. Fiema,


Our Peacemaker Promise

Let’s work together for peace

today and every day

Through all my actions,

all my thoughts

and everything I say!
