Thank you to everyone who helped support our Upper El trip to the Montessori Model UN on Tuesday. They made over $700 for their trip to New York in February!

Thanks to all the students who came out to run in these super fun school events. The track season will start at the end of March.

MMUN Fundraiser on Tuesday, October 24th
As many of you know, six students from the Upper Elementary classroom will be traveling to New York City in February to play a part in the Montessori Model U.N. Conference. October 24th is United Nations Day. The students will be selling dilly beans, sage bundles, caramel apples, and garlic braids after school that day to help fund their trip. Please come check out their wares and think about supporting this amazing learning opportunity!
California Missions Powerpoint
This week the Upper El completed one of their first big projects of the year: the Missions PowerPoint Presentation. Pairs of students chose a California Mission, researched it, and presented their information to the class on Thursday. In November they will have the chance to visit California's northern-most Mission in Sonoma.
Every day at play time students have the choice of an organized game, or to simply climb a tree, socialize with friends, or play on the play structure. Wednesday was "hot," so there was lots of fun in the shade.
Wolf Creek Science Camp
I want to thank all of the parents who helped on the Upper Elementary Trip to Wolf Creek this past week. Callie and I couldn't have done it without your help and support throughout the trip.
Our school garden is not only beautiful right now, but it's also overflowing with nutritious food. This week the Upper El made salad and juice (which included these giant beets!), while the Lower El made salad and pizza. After sowing the seeds in the spring the students have the opportunity to practice food preparation not to mention the satisfaction and joy of harvesting their own food.
Awesome First Week
We all brought our hope, peace, imagination, faith, kindness, open minds, and so much more. All to experience this exciting new year of friendships, ideas, and learning. Thanks to all of you for coming to Back to School Night on Thursday. It was a great evening of information. Please stop by the office this week to pick up your raffle packet if you were unable to make it. Thank you.
What Makes Six Rivers Montessori Different?
As a new school year begins many local schools are sending their students listsof supplies they will need for the first day of school. Things like pencils,kleenex, binders, and notebook paper are being purchased by families all acrossHumboldt County. Our students are tasked with the bringing of something farmore valuable than the net sum of all these items.
Mini Class Fun
Facepainting, cooking, prayer flags for the garden, mandalas, structure building, kite-making, and crystal-making were some of the many fabulous offerings for this year's mini classes. Thank you to all our volunteers for making it such fun! ...

Montessori Model UN
As I write this, six of our Upper El students are in Indiana participating in the Montessori Model UN. Before they left, the delegates representing Ukraine, practiced their Russian folksong in preparation for the Cultural Night.
