Today administration at the Many Rivers Montessori unveiled more than $1-million in renovations to its building in the Woodland neighborhood.

Improvements made include:

  • The outdoor classroom, a sheltered learning environment with natural features for students to learn about all subjects and especially nature and the environment
  • The rooftop garden, which supports multiple classroom projects and serves as a beautiful, additional outdoor learning space
  • A new upper elementary classroom inside to accommodate enrollment growth in older elementary students
  • New windows for the Children’s House classrooms, which serve preschoolers and kindergarteners

To celebrate, the school hosted its first ever fall carnival so community members could tour the school and enjoy the fall weather.

Head of School, Wendy Fisher says they are really excited about the renovations and hope more parents consider having their children attend Many Rivers.

“We think Montessori education is a really lovely way for a child to grow up and get an amazing education. So if we attract some folks here to decide they’re interested in our school, that would be fantastic,” says Fisher.

Food trucks, a dunk tank, games, face painting and live music were just a few events for people in attendance to enjoy. All proceeds from today’s event will support a student book fair later in the school year.

Many Rivers Montessori first opened in 2014 with only 77 students. It has since grown to 205 students.
