FMS Goes Around the Globe

Posted by:

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).

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

A Week at Catalina Island

Posted by:

Let’s Save the Libraries!

Posted by:

Because of the decline in property assessed value and related tax revenues, libraries in the city of Henderson have had to cut staff, hours, programs and materials. Without an increase in the library tax rate, two libraries will have to close completely and further reductions and eliminations will occur.
