A letter from the Head of Woodinville Montessori School

Dear WMS Community,

Today, I write with a heavy heart. I read newspaper after newspaper, and cry while reading the account of the death of George Floyd, I cry while I read the first-person accounts of African American people who experience fear and racism every day. I cry reading a poignant letter that another Head of School wrote to her community about talking to her 10-year-old African American son. I agree with my colleague, being silent is no longer an option. Racism exists in our society and we all have a part to play in being the solution. We need to have conversations with each other and with our children about racism.

While I feel overwhelmed and helpless in confronting racism that is so deeply entrenched in society, I became an educator because I believe in our students and in their ability to change the world. As Maria Montessori said, “the child is both a hope and promise for mankind.” Through education, conversation and courage we can make a difference in the world. We, as individuals and as a community can be agents of change. Here are some resources, shared with me by other heads of schools, to start conversations with your children, our students.

The Racial Healing Handbook: Practical Activities to Help You Challenge Privilege. Confront Systemic Racism, and Engage in Collective Healing (The Social Justice Handbook Series) by Anneliese A. Singh and Tim Wise, https://amzn.to/3gLfYuj

What gives me hope is that our community shares common values. We all believe in Montessori education which has at its core peace education. Issues of social justice, equity and inclusion need to be our focus along with keeping everyone safe through this pandemic.

Take care everyone, please reach out to your students’ teachers if you have any questions.--Best, Sunita

Eight-year-old LE student Vaughn put together a great stop-motion video yesterday to illustrate the fifth great lesson, particularly how humans developed the ability to count beyond three (a Pokemon using stones to keep track of its Hot Wheels).
Enjoy.
