Community is such an important Montessori Concept. From sitting "on the line" to community meetings to parent meetings to going out and immersions are all examples of community. Getting the word out on the greatness of Montessori Education, and going beyond the walls of the school building helps the smaller school community, the larger community of city, county, or state as well as the students themselves. Click on "community" to see a number of great community ideas.
Let students beat the drum for Montessori Education Week. It is their education. Upper Elementary and Secondary Montessori students can handle a lot of the letter writing, phone calling, and planning (with a bit of supervision.) Click on "students" for student activities.
