This is our Big Behemoth Box for recycling - or as we like to call it - B3

CHILDHOOD OBESITY PREVENTION:

AMS offers education programs to all our families about healthy eating choices and nutrition.  We encourage our students to learn to grow, prepare and cook well balanced meals.  Our students maintain an active life style with much time spent in our outdoor classrooms. 
 
We would like to make additions and renovations to our outdoor learning and play structures.




PEACE EDUCATION

Maria Montessori believed that children are the hope of the world.  We strive to model tolerance,  respect , curiosity and joy in all aspects of the school.
