Celebrating our Families at Montessori Academy

"Children become like the things they love." ~ Dr. Maria Montessori

Two times per year, our Elementary and Junior High classrooms host a parent breakfast. The breakfast is one community activity in which we open our classrooms to our families so that they make take a glimpse into what their children are doing in the classroom.
At Montessori Academy, we pride ourselves on our ability to build strong relationships with the many wonderful families that have been a part of our school's long history.  Sharing who we are and what we do is vital to bridging the gap between the school and home.  If you have not had the opportunity to take part in one of our parent breakfasts, we hope you can make it the next time.  To learn more about what we do at Montessori Academy, please contact Kathy Kolata at

Our Alums Are Awesome!

Emilee Ludwick, Montessori Academy Class of 2013
Emilee, A senior at Edwardsburg High School, came back to Room 102, to teach our Upper Elementary students the American Sign Language (ASL) alphabet.  She also taught our students some basic conversational ASL, such is "My name is..." and "What is your name?"  

Emilee is sister to Lynsee (Montessori Academy Class of 2014) and Blake (6th year in Room 102).  We are so grateful for our wonderful alumni and all that they do for our school.  Thank you, Emilee!!!

Winter Fun in the Snow!!!

"Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and when the grass of the meadows is wet with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet" ~ Dr. Maria Montessori

December 13!! It is about time the Upper Elementary students got to play in the snow!!!

Community Engagement at Northwoods

"Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world" ~ Howard Zinn

So, why is community engagement so important at Montessori Academy Edison Lakes?  

We hope to create a spirit of volunteerism.

As our mission states we wish to "inspire care for the community".

As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. so eloquently stated, "If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way".  

Community engagement and global citizenship is not just about giving to others - it is about realizing that we are a part of  a much larger world.  Margaret Mead stated, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world".
