Do good for doing good!
Pennies for Peace was a project form Montessori Director Martha Urioste. A donated phone booth became the school receptacle for coins that the learning community would give toward a cause. Students, teachers and parents could watch as, little by little, the pennies grew. When the booth had filled, the school decided as a community to donate the Pennies for Peace to a community in El Salvador suffering form a recent earthquake, and a school in Nepal.
Now teacher s can earn Peace Pennies for engaging in coursework and completing assessments and surveys. Teachers will be able to redeem their Peace Pennis for classroom enrichment like stickers, blank comic books, children’s books and more.
