    Grandparents Day: a magnitude of support!

    Friday, November 16th 2018, Pleasant Ridge Montessori school welcomed Grandparents and Special friends.  The magnitude of the support, diversity and heart of PRM became visible in the many grandparents and special friends that filled the room.  It was an amazing picture of how many people were supporting each child.

    Tuesday, October 30th, Community 2202, Mrs. Sander’s class, climbed aboard a school bus and traveled down 71 to the Cincinnati Art Museum and entered a whole different world of tall rooms lined with paintings that seemed more like windows to other worlds.  A museum tour guide gathered the students around various paintings to talk about story.  The students offered creative parts of a story based on details in the paintings.  They looked at realism and abstract paintings and found that part of the experience of art is the story we bring to the painting.  The students viewed some artwork depicting a Native American ceremony and then together they played replicas…
