Join Shining Stars Montessori Academy for our Fall Enrollment Field Day!  

This Saturday, participate in our community outreach program building healthy awareness with our students. Engage in fun interactive activities establishing healthy nutrition and healthy environment lifestyle practices for pre-K through 6th graders.

1. Nourishing the planet - Enjoy time in our new Shining Stars Garden! pupils will engage in a participatory learning seed demonstration to learn how plants grow and why they are important for a healthy environment.

2. Nourishing the mind - Special Pop-Up Guest Enchanted Hasna is joining our academy engaging our students in creative activities including face painting, art therapy, & crafty stress reduction techniques.

3. Nourishing the body - Children will burn energy enjoying relay races and sampling organic snacks to learn about the basic food groups and why its important to eat a diverse diet.

At the end of the day participants will gather to review and reflect upon what they have learned. At this time the staff will also pass out a short evaluation to caregivers to document their impressions and gather feedback for future events.

Photovoice Documentation: 
Caregivers will circulate taking pictures of the kids interacting and participating in the activities. They will then select their favorite photos to document the event and demonstrate the benefits of building positive habits from an early age. The documentation will be presented during FotoweekDC2016 with a panelist discussion on international mother and child survival.
