New School Montessori students in 4th-6th grade elect a student board each term to plan service projects, to come up with new ideas and to propose change. Students who want to be on the board prepare and give a speech to their constituents. This fall’s board wanted to help in some way with disaster relief. Previously, our students have worked with Matthew 25 Ministries sorting clothing, so it was natural to think of them when planning their class’ used clothing drive. Pictured above, you can see student board members passing boxes of clothing to the Matthew 25 representative who will distribute the clothing to those throughout the country in greatest need.
