At Bowman we offer a unique educational opportunity for elementary aged children, built on the principles of Maria Montessori.
The Bowman program embodies core Montessori beliefs of respect for people and for the environment. We believe that creativity flourishes in an atmosphere of freedom, acceptance and trust. Freedom does not mean doing whatever we want — adults must be firm, fair and consistent in setting limits, in order for children to build such self-discipline.
All School Thanksgiving, November 21
This annual event is one for which we are all thankful! Students are divided into small mixed-age groups, they get a budget, create a menu, go grocery shopping, decorate and prepare their Thanksgiving feasts. We’ve enjoyed everything from pasta to stir-fry to hamburgers and we are already hearing new ideas for this year’s event.
Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. ~W.J. Cameron
