 Join us on Nov. 28 and Dec. 12 for a two-part workshop on Montessori in the Home, about creating a supportive home environment using Montessori methods and philosophy.

Light dinner and childcare will be provided.

The cost of the workshop series is $30 per family.

 Wheeler Mission Share Closet Complete!

 

Wheeler Mission 2018

The Sycamore class has finished installing and stocking the shelves at Wheeler Mission, transforming a portion of the building to a little “shop” that provides the women, children and men who are using the temporary shelter with clothing, shoes, winter wear and other essential items. All the students worked very hard and enthusiastically, both in class and at Wheeler Mission, planning, organizing, assembling shelves, and making wonderful art for the walls of the shop.

The Sycamore Class continues to accept donations of gloves, hats, socks, and coats in women’s, men’s, and all children’s sizes. If you would like to donate, please send clothing here until November 16th and place in the collection bins of each building.

Thank you to all who donated items, chaperoned, and otherwise supported the project!

Early voting is still underway!
