Pursuing the Path to Positive Change

“We shall walk together in this path of life, for all things are part of this universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.” – Maria Montessori

One of the goals of the Lower Elementary Classroom, and indeed, all Montessori classrooms, is to instill in each child the idea that we are all connected. What better way to demonstrate our interconnectedness and appreciation for all living things, than to put our collective effort into taking action to create positive change?

This is precisely what LEU did.

We walked (ran, skipped and sprinted!) the path together in order to support Shark Conservation Cayman, a cause chosen by our students and one that is close to our hearts. Through the fundraising efforts of our bake sale and fun run, we met our goal of raising CI$1,000! We recently presented those funds to the shark experts and researchers who graciously shared with us their desire to nurture healthy reefs and marine environments. Clearly, this is a desire we all share.

A big thank you to all of those families – from grandparents, to mothers and fathers, to caregivers – who supported LEU’s efforts. Deep gratitude to you all for walking this path alongside us.
