Aidan, in partnership with the Greater DC Diaper Bank, will be collecting donations from May 23 to June 5 for our Diaper and Baby Pantry Item Drive. We encourage all members of our community to participate.
The aim of such an education indicates the desire to contribute to the good of all, to share in this cosmic goodness. Maria Montessori
Service to others is an important part of the Montessori philosophy. As a school, we aim to serve those in our immediate neighborhood of the District of Columbia as well as members of our global community.
Each of the individual classroom communities nurtures an ethic of caring. Some classes, inspired by their students, undertake projects that evolve from particular natural disasters and/or special interests.
The Community Service Committee of the PA and the Aidan Program for Families organize charitable efforts throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to involve their children in these drives and events. We also encourage families to model generosity and to talk with and to read to their children about giving to others.
As the school year comes to a close, we are already thinking about next year's events and volunteer opportunities. Help us connect with the Aidan community by identifying any volunteer opportunities of interest to you and your family for the coming 2022-2023 year.
Our Community Food & Pre-Made Sandwich Drive was a big success! Thank you to everyone who participated!
