Lyonsgate Weekly Update | Oct. 19, 2018

Hello Lyonsgate Montessori Families,
Last week, Mrs. Lyons attended the "55th Anniversary of Montessori in Mexico" conference at Colegio Montessori de Chihuahua. This is one of the largest Montessori schools and training centres in Mexico and the conference celebrated the achievements of the Montessori community in Mexico and their vision for the future. The conference offered some of the most renowned Montessori experts as presenters, and gave attendees the chance to see one of the biggest and most authentic Montessori schools — multiple buildings encompassing toddler to adolescent Montessori environments, with a full size sports field and farm animals. These conferences are always very inspiring and Rachel came home with lots of ideas for the present, and to work towards in the future. Enjoy a few photos of the campus below, including the Casa bee material — yes, the Casa children work with functioning hives and harvest their own honey, warm, Mexican weather outdoor spaces, and the adolescent program's dining hall and chickens.
Also, be sure to read the "Next Week" section. There is information about school photos next Tuesday, Oct. 23, and online sign-ups for November parent observations.
