Parent Involvement Matters

Thank you, Molly Gosnell, Clara Smith, and our Garden team for leading our fall harvest and planting day, this week. We greatly appreciate all of your hard, messy, year-round work. Maria Montessori said, "How often is the soul of man - especially that of a child - deprived because one does not put him in contact with nature?"  Nature and gardens enrich lives, and help build whole children, who understand that to nurture the earth, is to nurture themselves, their friends, their neighbors, and the world.
