Students Vote for Presidential Candidate

Last week, the students at Foothills Montessori School held their first mock election on Tuesday, November 6. The PTO set up an election booth in the amphitheater so students could vote in privacy. After exiting the polls they received an “I VOTED” sticker to wear with pride.


The primary students were able to vote for their favorite color of M&Ms, while the elementary and middle school students had a chance to vote for their choice for President. The red M&M won by a landslide but the Presidential race was a little tighter.

It was a wonderful opportunity for these young voices to be heard and feel that their opinion matters! Long live red M&Ms!


FMS Goes Around the Globe

Last week, the classrooms at Foothills Montessori School were transformed into regions from all over the world for our 12th annual International Children’s Day (ICD). The children dressed up in traditional costumes representing diverse cultures and had their passports stamped as they traveled to Germany, India, Bolivia, China, Italy, Canada, Mexico, Hungary, Austria, and throughout the United States.

We learned all about the rich heritage, history, geography and traditions of these places while sampling regional cuisine and playing interesting educational games.

We would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the parent volunteers who helped set up, clean up, and create such an unforgettable journey for our students. We loved getting a taste and glimpse of what the wide world has to offer!
