Our AHA! Moments take place in our classrooms, every day!
Brought to you by Rowntree Montessori Schools…Nurturing Tomorrow’s Achievers since 1969.
Did you ever stop to think that a simple act of kindness can actually help a student learn valuable leadership skills? Studies have shown that a simple act of kindness, such as a welcoming smile, a high-five or simply helping a fellow younger student out, actually teaches valuable leadership skills. Leadership is one of the many skills that Rowntree Montessori Schools teaches our students as part of our curriculum.
The first day of school can be an exciting day. But for many younger students, it can be a stressful day. At Rowntree Montessori Schools, our grade 8 students try to ease our younger students’ minds by helping them out and welcoming them to school with smiles and helping hands. This past first day, our grade 8s, greeted our younger students when they were dropped off by their parents, helped carry their backpacks and walked them to their classrooms.
Rowntree Montessori Schools encourages all students to be caring and nurturing individuals, as well as to be mentors to our younger students. Being caring and nurturing are critical qualities in tomorrow’s leaders.
Furthermore, our grade 8 students are encouraged to become
members of the Rowntree Leadership Council where they will be in charge of the
different activities within the school community, providing them with ample
leadership opportunities that will help them in their future grades.
