Thank you Providence Ambassadors!

Maasai.16Last Thursday, September 26, The Maasai Warriors visited Providence Montessori School. Joining us were students from Montessori Middle School of Kentucky, Keystone Montessori, and The Sphinx Academy. It was a spectacular event! If you missed it, watch this short video to learn about the mission of these extraordinary young men.

We can thank Providence Ambassadors for arranging this. Providence teacher Chris Zachritz started this group 7 years ago. About 5 years ago it evolved from a classroom effort into an after school organization which currently boasts 22 student volunteers. This year’s group has set a goal to raise $4500.00. They work with Free The Children, the largest “children helping children” organization in the world. They also work with Me to We, and contribute to both local charities and global charities such as Unicef. Participating in We Day is a highlight for the students.

Ms. Zachritz said, “The students are empowered by the fact that this an organization for children only. Their faces light up when I share that with them.”

 

Cub Scout Pack 30 Enjoys Annual Fishing Trip

It was a beautiful night for Providence Cub Scout Pack 30 to earn their belt loops in fishing. Mr. Sharp Brown generously hosted the pack at his farm, and the scouts made good use of his pond full of bass, bream, and bluegill.

 

Siblings were welcome — in fact, the winning bass was caught by the sister of a scout!

 

 

Many thanks to farm owner Mr. Brown, who tended the fire for the s’mores and, as it turns out, can tell some mighty fine fish stories! Also, thanks to former Providence parent Mark Newton for arranging the expedition, and to Marialyce Gradeck for the pictures. (Click here to see a few more.)

Earth Day at Providence

Guess what? It didn’t rain this year!

Earth Day projects were shared, and everyone enjoyed the Scholastic book fair — complete with Clifford!

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some of our third graders collaborated on a Water Shed project, complete with a scale model of our surrounding area:

 

 

And of course, a good time was had by all at the picnic. It was a glorious day!

Parents Night Out!

Our annual Providence R.O.C.K.S. evening in April really … well, ROCKED!

Many thanks to our fundraising committee and all the volunteers for planning such a wonderful event. And thanks to the Lexington Fraternal Order of Police for providing the wonderful space for our celebration!


R.O.C.K.S. is an acronym for: Roots of Community, Knowledge, and Service.

Montessori “Madness” is right …

Planking, juggling and a clear message reached an appreciative  crowd as Trevor Eissler gave the keynote speech at The Montessori Fair in Lexington on February 23.

 

Providence was 1 of 14 area schools participating in this event, which introduced the Montessori method of education to interested families and children.

Breakfast Cafe Pics!

Our annual Breakfast Cafe fills more than just our tummies. Providence families took time out of their busy mornings to share a meal with their children at school. Visiting with other families, teachers, and the children is a great way to start any day!

Many thanks, once again, to Upsorn Hutchens for the wonderful photos. We hope you click here to see the entire album!

We’ll see you there!
