2013 was an excellent and prosperous year for KSC. Looking back on our good fortune, we are filled with gratitude for the opportunities that came our way to work, create, problem solve, celebrate, and, in general, to be of use to Montessori schools around the country. As a result, KSC is a stronger, wiser, more experienced and responsive organization heading into the New Year. Having access to the inner workings of growing and transitioning schools is a privilege. To be trusted to help guide schools toward their future and vision is fulfilling. To bear witness to the goodhearted work of one Montessori school after another is reaffirming.
In 2013 KSC christened a new $2.6 million Montessori schoolhouse, supported the evolution of blossoming Montessori adolescent programs, counseled Montessori Heads and Boards as they considered the most stable and sustainable paths to growth, and guided Montessori communities in their development as givers, teachers, leaders, and models of all that is possible in the realm of education. For these opportunities, KSC thanks all of the Montessori teachers, administrators, trustees, parents, and, most of all, students for allowing us to partner with you and for all you have taught us in 2013. We promise to put the knowledge to good use in the year ahead for there is much more work to be done. Onward!
