In order to best preserve and showcase this rich history, we've recently launched a new pictorial timeline. In it you can see the faces of many of the people who have made MNW such a fun and dynamic place to learn. But there are still gaps.
Planning for January 30th’s Celebration of Light, Montessori Northwest’s annual dinner and party (more on that here), is in full swing. For 10 years the event has been a fabulously sparkly recognition of MNW’s work and the work of all Montessorians in the Pacific Northwest. This year’s Celebration will feature live music, games, a photo booth, open bar, and delicious dinner.
The images below are of the MNW staff's favorite holiday movies. Each staff member was only allowed to name one as their top pick. A couple favored the same film. Everyone had reasons for their choice, although some needed a little more explaining than others. What movie gets you into the holiday spirit?
