On November 13th, we held our Annual Alumni Forum and Elementary Orientation. This is one of our favorite events for our Alexander Montessori families every year. Parents get the chance to listen to a panel of Alexander Alumni from 6th through 12th grade who give us valuable insight on how Alexander Montessori prepared them for their futures at our local schools such as Ransom Everglades, Palmer Trinity, Gulliver It's wonderful to see how great these students are doing post-Alexander.
Our Co-Founder, Beverley McGhee, eagerly watched from the front row and even shared some wisdom with the speaking Alumni: "Be stubborn and persistent! Keep following your dreams and don’t forget to keep coming to visit! For 56 years, I've been able to live a magical life thanks to amazing students like you!"
After the panel, parents were invited into the Lower Elementary classrooms to take a look at some of the lessons their children will be learning next year, when they enter First Grade. Mr. McGhee played the guitar and sang songs with the Kindergarteners to end the evening. It was a spectacular night for everyone! Thank you to all of our amazing alumni who gave up a few hours in their busy schedules to come back for a visit.
