MICH Students Provide Love and Hugs

Sometimes you just need a warm hug! Students from Montessori International Children’s House (MICH) hope that their hand-finished fleece blankets will provide comfort to children in hospitals, shelters, or anywhere that a child might be in need of comfort.

Working with the Anne Arundel County/Annapolis chapter of Project Linus, Martha Gawell introduced students in her class to the concept of helping other children through community service. Mrs. Gawell timed this outreach effort to coincide with Make A Difference Day, a national day of helping others. Project Linus will donate the blankets to organizations like Anne Arundel Medical Center, Baltimore Washington Medical Center,  Anne Arundel County Social Services, and Sarah’s House Shelter.

Montessori International Children’s House, an independent Toddler through 6th grade school accredited by the Association Montessori Internationale, has been inspiring excellence, nurturing curiosity and enhancing creativity for more than twenty-five years. MICH’s student-centered learning community emphasizes hands-on experiential learning, respect for self and others, and the development of inquiry skills that enhance lifelong learning.

At a recent parent/teacher conference for my 16-year-old daughter's AP English class, I realized that the terrific feedback the teacher gave was for many of the traits my daughter learned in the 6 years she spent at MICH (4 with the wonderful Mrs Gawell). I'm always happy to see the newest crop of MICH kids; they give me hope for the future!
