The Montessori Children’s Academy Hosts Millburn Township Deputy Mayor Ian Mount


SHORT HILLS, NJ - On Tuesday, March 1st, the elementary students at The Montessori Children’s Academy (MCA) were thrilled to host the Deputy Mayor of Millburn, Mr. Ian Mount. 

Mr. Mount was greeted by two enthusiastic first graders who escorted him through the classrooms of our preschoolers and kindergarteners.  As he toured the classrooms, he told the children it reminded him of when his own child attended a Montessori school and that he was extremely impressed by the level of learning taking place at MCA.

After he finished visiting the classrooms of our younger children, the first-grade students could not wait to lead him into their elementary classroom.  Upon entering the classroom, Deputy Mayor Mount was greeted by several students, eager to share with him their knowledge and work.  Two third-grade students demonstrated their use of the 123D Design software to design replicas of classic Montessori materials, such as the Knobless Cylinders, using their own MakerBot 3D printer.

The students then presented Deputy Mayor Mount with a Pink Tower they had created on the printer, as well as a collaborative diamante poem about Montessori education.  Next, the children performed a song for him about the activities of Montessori students, which they had adapted from “All Across the Wide Wide World” by Sarah Barchas.  

To conclude the visit, Deputy Mayor Mount presented the students with a proclamation from the Township of Millburn, officially declaring February 28 – March 5, 2016 as Montessori Education Week. 

The occasion to meet with the Deputy Mayor provided the MCA elementary students an opportunity to forge a connection with the Township of Millburn and neighboring communities.
