What is a scientist? ….We give the name scientist to the type of man that has felt experiment to be a means guiding him to search out the deep truth of life, to lift a veil from its fascinating secrets,and……has felt arising within him a love for the mysteries of nature.
Today the children enjoyed a very fun lesson, with Ms. Mary Alston, on Non-Newtonian Fluids. They learned about fluids that do NOT follow Newton’s Law of Viscosity….although they may just have shared with you that they made slime!! Ms. Mary Alston has provided beautiful, engaging, enriching science lessons for the children all year. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Moultrie Montessori School is very pleased to officially announce its upcoming move to a new campus located at 37 South Dixie Highway. While this move was unexpected, the new campus is much better in a variety of ways, and will be our permanent home.
The campus consists of four lots. Three of the lots have houses on them and one is a drive through and parking lot. There is one house for each age group: elementary (6-12 years), primary (3-6 years), and toddler (1 ½- 3 years). The toddler group will share a house with the office. The joined back yards of the houses provide a lovely playground where there is a huge and fabulous grandfather live oak tree. Everything about it fits Moultrie Montessori.
Our new campus is in a centrally located neighborhood. While Dixie Highway is a light commercial area, the connecting streets are residential, which is much more suitable for a small school than our previous location was. There is easy access from both U.S. 1 and State Road 207 (one block west of U.S. 1 and one block north of State Road 207). It is also a pleasant drive on Masters Drive from State Road 16. If you are coming on I-95, the 207 exit is best.
The houses, built between 1950 and 1962, have been vacant and neglected for several years and are in need of repair and renovation. We are very fortunate to have an exceptionally capable renovation team, who communicate and work together well. This is significant in making things happen smoothly and in a timely manner. They are also willing to work with volunteers in order to lower our costs.
We are very enthusiastic about creating a beautiful campus, inside and out, where children and staff are supported in learning, growing, and developing their potential in collaboration with others. This is an exciting time for Moultrie Montessori School and I look forward to contributing to our new neighborhood and larger community.
Our first Moultrie Elementary Science Fair was a wonderful success! The children worked hard all year to build the skills and knowledge necessary to participate in this event. The look of pride in each child’s eyes, and the joy on each child’s face conveys the accomplishment that each child is feeling.
