The Food Drive was a Success!!!
Grace and Courtesy is an important aspect of Montessori education. This important part of the Montessori curriculum is teaching and modeling for students about socially acceptable behaviors and customs. Another important aspect of Grace and Courtesy is the emphasis on learning to give back by serving others.
Central Montessori Academy students participated in collected food and personal items for Mt. Healthy Alliance. The students collected 1,231 pounds!
The sixth-grade students took the leadership role and sorted the food items and helped deliver all these items to Mt. Healthy Alliance.
The classrooms had a competition to see which group could get the most items. Upper Elementary brought in 400 items! CMA collected over 1,000 donations!
Thank you all for your participation and supporting this lesson in giving back to our Mt. Healthy community. The Mt. Healthy Alliance Food Pantry serves 1500 individuals each month. The food pantry has seen a growing need during these difficult times. Thank you for giving generously to this cause.
